Saturday I grabbed a pair of jeans I bought a few months ago (size 16) since my 18s were getting too big. Well when I put on the 16s they are getting to big – which is very exciting (but sad because I really liked these jeans, but I can just buy them again in a smaller size). However I have a bunch of 14s from college that I haven’t worn and plan on wearing in the interim until I meet a number only worn once for a brief window of a time…12. So no new pants for me until I need 12s. I can wear baggy 16s and old 14s until then.
Since I’m trying to stay strong and not weigh myself until WIW I figured let’s see if I can check out some weight loss via a stroll down the memory lane of pants. I grabbed a stack of jeans from college and 2 pair that I have NEVER worn because when I bought them they didn’t quite fit, but I told myself they would (and those of from a whiiiiile ago). Anyway I was happy to find that out of 5 pairs of old jeans 4 of them fit!
PS I went running in yoga-esque pants I bought last month (I was cusping between L and XL, but opted for the L because I didn’t want the XLs to fall off while running…which has been happening when XLs don’t have draw strings). Well the L yoga pants were inching off me while running yesterday! I can still run in them, but hopefully not for long!
Unless something changed soon, I was going to live a life where my major relationship was with a bottle of wine…and I’d finally die, fat and alone, and be found three weeks later half-eaten by wild dogs.
Bridget Jones. A hilarious quote that I think we have all related to at times!
Went to walmart to buy measuring tape (more on that later) and pita chips. I ended up going on a fruit buying binge because the prices were too low not to!
Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
Despite only about 11 hours of sleep in the past 3 days – I’m headed to the gym after work today to run/job and meet with my trainer. I made my appointment with the trainer a few weeks ago not thinking I would be as exhausted as I am, but I’m gonna push through and hopefully sleep like a BABY tonight (and when I say sleep I mean take a 14 hour coma).
Trays of Chick-fil-a minis sitting around the office is a bad bad idea
I successfully avoided lots of temptation yesterday. Eating college catering food is always dangerous. I avoided burgers, chips, cookies very successfully. I only had a SMALL spoonful a broccoli cheese casserole and 2 bites of someone’s pie. Instead ate heaping piles of grilled chicken, veggies and salad!
I finally was able to get all my pictures in order – sorry for all the myspace-esque shots, but I wanted to show “the dress” now and then!
Alas I am holding steady at 200.6 AKA where I was A MONTH AGO. This month was a little crazy with a long weekend in Baltimore/DC/PA and a quick trip to Boston in addition to training my orientation leader staff for ten, 10+ hour days.
I know this month I hit around 205 at one point, so I’m glad I’m back down I’m just bitter. I WANT NOTHING MORE TO BE OUT OF THE GODDAMN 200s and I’ve had to look at a friggin 2 longer than I’ve wanted. Next Weigh in Wednesday IT’S FREAKIN ON…MARK MY WORDS THERE WILL BE A “1” IN FRONT OF MY WEIGHT.
