Well, today was the day I fit into my goal pants. They are a pair of Angels size 11 corduroy pants that my mom got me for my birthday or Xmas in probably 2006. I wasn’t able to wear them then, even though I fit into size 11s in everything else at the time. Probably because they don’t have stretch and everything else did. Anyway, that was at about the time I started gaining back a lot of weight from a diet I started in mid-2005. Since that time, I’ve gone back and forth, inching my way up to over 200 pounds.
I moved here last year and the lifestyle changed my weight a lot without effort. I started concentrating on losing more weight about last year because I didn’t want to be almost twice as heavy as my boyfriend at the time (who is now my husband :D). I’ve lost about 40 pounds since getting here (not 100% sure because I didn’t get a scale till summer, but I know it was at least 204). I’m still not the shape I want to be, but I’m getting there.
I see myself in the mirror everyday and, although my clothes are looser and going down in sizes, I still look the same to me. However, the results are clear when you look at something like this. I want to get down to between 135 and 145, or at least that’s what I think. Maybe I’ll change my mind, but that’s my goal. I’m more than halfway there!
