So, since my last post I've lost 4 more pounds...and I managed to do it even with a trip to New Orleans and a long weekend in Key West! I think that consistency is what is making me successful in my journey. I have learned to incorporate exercise into my daily routine and to always make healthy choices. I am still on the Medifast program but took a break from it while I was in Key West. Now, the old me would have lost my healthy mind and tried to eat every greasy, fried, delicious thing on the island, BUT the new me made smart choices for my meals and tried to get some form of physical activity while I was there (ok, one day my "physical activity" was shopping...it still counts...it was hot - I broke a sweat, and I walked fast from store to store...).
Ok, so my last post was about my "not-so-fat-jeans" and how excited I was to get back into them. Well, since then I've had more clothing victories!!!! Yay! Today, I am wearing some even smaller jeans than my "not-so-fat-jeans"...I guess I will call them my "less-than-not-so-fat-jeans." I haven't worn these in almost 6 years!!!! Also, I've had these two pairs of Nike running shorts that I've never really been able to wear. They were too tight, too short and my thighs wanted to have them for lunch every time I took a step....not a pretty picture at all. Well, both pairs fit now...and they fit loose!!! This weekend, I'm going through my closet and getting rid of everything that is too big...I don't want to hang on to any of those clothes because I NEVER want to get back in them....EVER!! Also, getting rid of old stuff gives me a good excuse to replace it with new, cuter, smaller stuff, right? ;)
Here's a recent picture....and an old one below it. I can see a difference! :)
