I wondered if this would ever happen!

Thursday, March 10, 2016

I posted a status update this morning about my NSV and told all my spark friends that I would blog about it later. Well I had another ugly day at work and almost changed my mind but decided I'd celebrate my NSV instead of dwelling on the bad part.

When I woke up this morning I realized I needed to wear dress slacks for an intense meeting, instead of my usual jeans, I went to the closet to pull out my one pair of dress slacks, that fit, only to discover they were still in the laundry from last week. I scolded myself as I rummaged through the rest of my closet and pulled out dress slacks that were too big. I tried them on only to discover that they wouldn't even stay on my hips so not even an option, I'd wear the dirty pants before I'd wear those in public. I continued my now desperate search through the closet and came across a pair of capri dress slacks that I had purchased 5 years ago when I was about the same weight.

Unfortunately I never got to wear them because they were just a little too tight and I never lost enough weight to get all way into them, comfortably. So they had been sitting in my closet collecting dust as a dream that someday I would get to wear them again. As I pulled them out of the closet I grabbed my cell phone and checked the weather hoping it would be nice enough to rationalize capris. Thankfully it was forecasted to be in the upper 60's so I tried the pants on. As I pulled them on I was nervous about how they would fit around my hips, that's where I carry my weight, but as I zipped up the slacks I was pleased to not feel the familiar pull around my hips. The dream capris fit! I was elated! I couldn't help but feel proud at different times in the day and I may have even been strutting once or twice as I walked the hallways of school.

I can't believe how far I have come and even though I've had setbacks, I've overcome them, Monday I go back to weigh in and I hope to see progress on the scale. Even if I don't though, I know I'm on the right path and will keep working towards my goal of being healthy,

Here I am at th end of the day rocking my capris!
