Another great thing happened yesterday! I bought my first pair of 14 jeans in probably 10 years. I had bought the 16s last week and they were loose. I was skeptical about the 14s but just bought them without trying them on. I assumed that I would have to really squeeze into them but it would keep me motivated. However, when I got home and put them on, they just slid right on, no problems at all. Hence, they do have quite a bit of stretch to them but I didn't even have to do my regular 10 squats to stretch them out. They fit just right, brand new, never stretched. Made my day. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get Travis to take my picture wearing them. Not looking so hot today since not feeling well.
I am worried about my goal of 179, I am going to post weight on Feb 1. I don't think I am going to make it and it has been very discouraging. I worked out on Monday but was so sore that I took two days off, we had our trip to Chattanooga, date night, etc. However, I know I'll be posting a loss and that is what really matters. Slow and steady wins the race right? The good news about slow and steady is that it has been proven that those that lose weight this way by making lifestyle changes instead of some get quick fix have a lower chance of gaining it all back and their skin does better where you don't have as much excess. I am just going to celebrate a loss; I am keeping my 179 written on my arm until I attain it though!
