My weight and pant sizes

Friday, March 11, 2016

I have three sizes of pants: 12, 14 and 16. These show the range of sizes that I have worn over the past 4 years. Which I wear have become a way to track not just my weight loss but how I feel about it.

When I am wearing my 16s, that is when I am very angry with myself. It is my kick starter for my motivation that I must have waned. As soon as I lose a little weight, I move out of these pretty fast.

My 14s are my middle ground. I can usually wear them but I feel really good when I have to wear a belt with them. That is my sign that things are going well.

My 12s are my standard. I can usually wear them, even if it means I have to suck in hard to button them, or use a rubber band to expand the waist. And every time they are washed, that first time putting them on is hard on the waist. But that is the first change I feel, I notice they are easier to put on after a wash. It is at that point that I know I am really on the right track.

It is weird to me that this is how more a reminders and motivation that the scale, but hey, if it works, it works. I look forward to that day when I buy new pants . . . maybe even a size 10 next time.

    This describes me. I feel the same ways at the same sizes. I just got to the point where I can wear my 12s again but they have to stretch out after a wash. Feels great!

    Sounds familiar. I keep 3 pant sizes. My 14's are tight when I put on. I am looking forward to that loose feeling. Winter has taken a tole on me once again. Springtime and time to get serious. Walking and tracking intake. We can do this.
