I had a very good day today. I went shopping and tried on a bathing suit and discovered as I went to check out & buy my new bathing suit, what I thought was a size 8 was actually a 6
!! I also tried on a pair of shorts and had to go down a size, same thing with the shirt and dress I bought.
I'm in 6s and 8s and smalls and mediums, and leaning towards the 6/small side of life. 9s and 11s in juniors' to coincide with that. I'm where I want to be clothing wise, and honestly, I don't really want to get any smaller as far as clothes are concerned because well, there really isn't that much left after a small! And I have no desire to get into 4s and 2s and 0s. I just don't. I like my size. I know I put my goal at 145, and I figure I probably might even get there after trial and error with maintenance. But as far as size is concerned, I'm HAPPY. I don't care if I can't wear a bikini; I like the way one pieces look on my body better, and my thighs probably could use some tightening up but it's nothing I'm wanting to hide or anything. It's nothing I've ever really fretted over. I'm not striving for perfection; I'm striving for being healthy and being happy with myself the way I am. I'm pretty much there as far as my body is concerned -- everything else is not something weight loss can take care of.
So... would you call it goal? Do those 5 stupid little pounds really make that much of a difference? And I want to keep lifting but I don't want it to really make me smaller... I just wanna stay put. If I focused on strength instead of fat loss, would that help me maintain my goal?
I'm really excited about what happened today. I fit into a size 6 bathing suit! I'm pretty sure it was the smallest size they had. That's so EXCITING! YAY!
