I have been SOOOO down lately because I just can't see any of the work I've been doing. As many of you know, I don't weigh myself and haven't in 7 months. I guess it would help but looking at the numbers really messes with my mental commitment. So, I decided to free myself. It works for me but I wouldn't recommend it because you never know where you are.
Everything looks the same on me, although my clothes keep getting bigger. When I look in the mirror though, I still see the same thighs, stomach (you know the rest). Mentally, I just don't see what my clothes are showing.
Well, I've gotten use to buying new professional black pants every couple of months. I buy them and they look great and then they get to big. I would be happy if the mirror reflected the same loss. So, I went today to buy yet another pair of black pants that fit and guess what....a 14 regular!!!!! For the first time in over 25 years, I am in a regular 14. Not the 14Ws but a regular 14.
Next, I tried on a pair of jeans. I have always worn a size 24. My legs are huge and while I fit size 22 pants, I always bought 24 jeans (and owned a pair of 26s). TODAY, I tried on 2 pairs of 16 regulars and they were TOO BIG. The saleslady asked to get me a 14. Of course, they didn't have one so I tried on another pair of 14 jean/pant thingies and THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!
I just wanted to pat myself on the back. I'm updating my stats. Long way to go but I'm smiling today. Just wish someone would fix those mirrors
