Ok I know I could post this elsewhere, but I've had such a great day, I had to share.
Today, I went to Costco and I saw Champion exercise pants there from sizes S to XL. Of course I thought I was dreaming, but I looked at the
size XL pants (approximately 16-18 size) and I thought "hmm these look like they will fit". Of course I like fitted pants for exercising but I don't try to go with "If I bend over, I'm going to split these in half" or even "these pants create a huge bulge at the waist". So I decided to buy them and when I got home, I tried them on and they fit perfectly and I wore them to the gym. I can't believe I am wearing a quasi normal size.
Then I went to the gym and weighed myself and the scale lingered at 300 lbs for a few moments and I almost got super happy but then it settled on 303. I know not many people who would ever say this but I can't wait until I weigh 300 lbs and in 4 lbs, I will never ever say that again because I will never be over 300 lbs again.
Ok next thing that happened is I did my normal weight training routine which was good and made me tired but then I talked myself into getting on the elliptical for 25 minutes. I got on the Elliptical and 6 minutes into it, I was ready to quit, but then I told myself that I needed to go to 10 minutes and if at 10 minutes I wanted to get off I could. At 10 minutes, I talked myself into 15 and at 15 I talked myself into 20 and at 20 I talked myself into doing the 25. I was amazed, tired and drenched in sweat but I did 25 minutes which is something I haven't been able to do on the elliptical in 5 years. Since I live in the Mile High City, I was curious if I could do even better at sea level, who knows
Anyway, I thought I would share because I am so damn happy right now
