Mini-Goals - They fit!

View Full Version : They fit!

The scale isn't moving much. In fact, not at all in the last week, in spite of 1200 calories a day (save for a little incident last night which put me at 1500 for the day--still totally reasonable), and consistently working out.

I was feeling a little discouraged, but decided to not focus on it and try on some old jeans instead. I can get into all of my size 12s! Most of them are still too tight to actually wear, but one pair, that definitely didn't fit two weeks ago, fit comfortably today! This means that I own exactly one pair of jeans that fit well, as all of my 14s are falling off of me. Score!

In fact, I think I'll wear those size 12 skinny jeans out tonight ;P

Wooo hoo! Good for you! Just more proof that we can't be slaves to the what the scales says. I actually put on an old pair of jeans today this morning and wearing them to work. I haven't fit into them since 2006. And yeah, probably shouldn't be wearing this style anymore but I didn't care this morning. I cared more about the fact I was able to wear them again than whether or not I was stylin'!

Congrats to you and GREAT WORK!

I have a pair of nearly brand new juniors 13's from a couple/few years ago and I haven't been able to wear them at all.......

until last weekend when I threw them on just to check and they did fit! Still a little tight, but they fit! It definitely made me fell good :-)

ShanIAm, I have about half a dozen pairs that I've held onto for "inspiration" but that are totally out of style as well. I tried on one pair yesterday and laughed at how out of date they were after only a few years. You better believe I'll wear them anyways though once they fit! : )

GREAT JOB! Yeah, when I started handweights about 4 years ago I quickly learned that the scale is just a barometer-the TAPE MEASURE tells the tale.
