I bought these jeans months ago to motivate me. 18 pounds ago I couldn't even comfortably get them over my butt. Then I could get them on but there was no way that button was going in that buttonhole. Tonight, just on a whim, I tried it and....I can button my size 10 Old Navy jeans!
Sure, they are tight and I have a muffin top, but this is a concrete sign of progress beyond the scale.
Not in onederland yet, and still in an obese BMI but this is a sign of progress, and of a shrinking waistline which is one of my key goals.
Now....to work towards the day when I can zip them up and wear them out in public!
Thanks for your support everybody! Hooray for non-scale victories!
