I've lost just under six pounds according to the scale, and I was pretty proud of myself for that.
But then out of curiosity, I started trying on clothes.
So just before I started this journey, my grandmother bought me a bunch of clothes. In that batch were two pairs of skinny pants that did not fit. (They are identical, bought off the clearance rack.) I expected them to fit, and brought them with me to a music festival in hopes of wearing them to the club with a long tunic and stilettos. Well. When I tried to put them on, I couldn't get them on my calves right (they were so tight the seams refused to lay straight) and then I busted the zipper trying to get them closed. Embarrasing.
Last night I took the other identical pair, slid them on, buttoned and zipped them. Had room to slide my thumbs in on each side no problem. The calves are still tight. Skinny pants aren't in the cards for me for a while. But still!!!! I was standing there preening for like fifteen minutes!!!
I tried on another pair of pants I couldn't get over my thighs, and they pull up now. At this rate I'll be wearing them by Thanksgiving!!!
Same deal with a bunch of pants i've been hanging onto.
And then today I realized as i was grocery shopping that these shorts that used to fit a TINY TINY bit snug, well they were twisting in the waist when i walked because there was so much give in them. In fact I'm wearing them now at the computer and they're riding so low they are barely covering my butt crack (TMI sorry)
It's such a TINY difference. People would never notice, but I DO! And it makes me feel AMAZING!!!!
I'm seriously doing it this time!!!! And it's awesome!!!!
PS: Anyone with calve slimming tips should totally respond. Pilates maybe?
