I Wore Smaller Pants TODAY!!

This morning I got up and showered and got dressed as usual...but as I put on my pants I felt really frumpy in them. They felt baggy and saggy. It's a problem that up till the past month or so I haven't experienced in a long time. I've adapted the past couple of weeks and worn a belt but today I thought....hum, I wonder if I have any pants in the closet that are smaller? So I shined the light into the closet and started looking. I dug around and found 1 pair of pants that were capris which worked fine since it was supposed to be 95 degrees today.

I tried them on and zipped them up and buttoned them and although they were a little snug they were comfortable!! My muffin top kind of hung over the top of the waist line, because they are low rise waist (which I don't get on "fat lady" pants) but I decided I didn't care....I wanted to wear pants that were not falling off!! I wore them all day and did not have marks on my stomach from the pants being too tight!! I am thrilled!! Problem now is I think that was the only pair of pants in my closet that are that size :((( so now I have to go back to my baggy pants tomorrow!! I'm hoping that this week I can go to the JC Penney Outlet store and buy myself some "cheap" pants in the smaller size.

I'm going to the gym in the morning to weigh myself to see how I'm doing. The Sisterhood is taking a couple of weeks off, but I'm not!! I have goals!! and I can't meet them if I don't work at it every day! By the way, I just finished Day 15 of the 30 Day Shred DVD -- round 2!! I haven't missed a beat yet, although I'm still huffing and puffing by the time I'm done. I think alot of it has to do with the fact that I still can't breathe real good yet, from my sinus allergy problems. I'm still coughing and have to do the inhaler before and after the workout, but I am doing it!! You can too!!

One more thing....I received my new Ipod in the mail today! It's blue and very cute! I can't wait to get some music loaded on it and start listening to it! Thanks to the Sisterhood for blessing me with it!!

Congratulations - that is a huge victory! I remember when that happened to me I wanted to shout from the rooftops. :)

I've kind of stopped even trying lately and not sure why. Thank you for having an inspiring blog!

WOO~HOO!! Isn't that an AWESOME feeling??!! I'm very close to that point myself ~ I had to switch to a shorter belt on the weekend, but my waistband is getting pretty bunched up under there! Man, I LOVE having that problem!!

Keep up the great work!
