Mini Goal Victory

All morning I told myself that I would not share this victory until I was actually wearing them.. but I just can't wait. I want to scream it from the rooftops. Either I spill it here or I will not be able to update at all because it's the only thing I can think about.

I put on my mini-goal jeans today and they FIT!!!!!! I just tried these on a week or two ago and I couldn't quite button them and I didn't even attempt to zip them up.

I bought these jeans about two years ago when I was losing weight. My jeans that were a size bigger were falling off of me so I assumed I could just go in and buy the next size down. Wrong. They never fit. I was so depressed. Looking back, I think that was the beginning of the end of that journey. The weight loss had slowed and I was faced with some ickiness in life to deal with. I never actually made the concious decision to quit. I just slowly fell off the wagon.

The ironic thing is that I actually weigh about 10 pounds more now than when I bought them. I guess that proves my theory about why I'm losing so slowly. Hubby and I were talking about it a few days ago when I was frustrated with how slowly the scale is moving. I know I have not been cheating. I work out extremely hard. Realistically it's possible that I'm adding muscle and losing fat leaving me with slow scale losses. But as I said to my husband... "You would think that at some point it has to shift. It can't continue this way forever. Something has to give." Well I don't have any huge scale losses to report.... but I can fit in those jeans, and a skirt and a blouse (I feel like I tried on everything in my closet this morning. It was pretty fun!) ....

My next mini-goal....
Fit into the three bags of clothes that Karen gave me. She had weight loss surgery and passed on 4 bags of clothes. One bag fits now. Three are just waiting.....
