Tight Jeans - and a good day so far, let's keep it that way

Saturday, March 07, 2015

So… Hooray… Boooya…. It's 3:34pm and I've had a "good day" so far.
Bkfst Lunch and Snacks On Track
Calories low and Nutrition high
2 33oz bottles of water consumed
Yay APPLES
Not fighting with Joe -- and both of us working at it
SUNNY DAY
Worked out
Put on jeans I forgot about
and they are
TIGHT
TIGHT JEANS feel …. um….. harsh.
Putting them on at the gym I felt the flush of regret and almost-shame (but nipped it in the bud). "These pants were getting loose a year ago". "Now
they're tight (again)". The "AGAIN" part is the dangerous part.

I accept that my pants are tight.
TODAY
I remember how it feels to have my clothes fit easily.
And I want that.
I can have that.
With some work and some conviction
and some patience

So…
Once as a child I had to be in hospital for a time… and "a good day" was a euphemism for whether or not one had moved their bowels that day.
Mmmhmmm.

These days… "A good day" means
Spark Ready -
FEELING OKAY ABOUT MY SELF
Which -- like it or not-- ALWAYS MEANS
Where is the Food Today.
A good day, for me,
with goal of weight loss being foremost,
is
Eating within Range
Drinking water
Exercising at least 30min… Looking for 60 soon.

I want other targets
and other goals.
A life time of Wt Loss focus…. yadda yadda yadda

Still… THAT IS WHAT I NEED
NOW.

So. For today… I am embracing it.
(Mourn the roads less traveled… on some other day).

Hooray for me.
Will report back tonite to confirm that it stays a good day
all the way to bed time.

More to Come.

    Way to go on making good choices and staying strong. One day at a time - you can do it. Those jeans will be falling down before you know it. :)

    Congratulations on making a life adjustment when the pants are only tight, rather than replaced!

    your good day sounds a lot like mine. I know I tracked and kept my calories within the limits but I do feel off. Nice that the spark website makes us think about these things now. Best just to do the program a day at a time and the jeans will get loose again.
