I had a pretty great NSV today (non-scale-victory)!. I was getting dressed, trying to find something to wear. The day was a bit hazy and had lots of cloud coverage. I decided to opt for jeans. Then, I hesitated.
You see, I remembered that just a week ago I went through my closet and got rid of all my larger jeans...all of them. I kept only my 10's. (I have none smaller than 10 at this point.)
I was bummed. Jeans sounded comfy, but I knew my 10's had gotten to be to little...I couldn't even button them up the last time I tried.
I hesitated. I didn't know if I could take the disappointment of not fitting into clothes...after all, you read my last post, I'm on a freaking roller coaster! And, it's not like I've dropped a ton of weight so far...
But, I decided to throw caution into the wind. I tried them on. (And I even took a picture...I need to take more pictures along this journey to remember where I have been each step of the way!)
They are definitely snug, but they are also buttoned! And I'm wearing them! Sure, I might have a muffin top...but I don't care today. I earned that muffin top. Sure, people won't realize that the jeans that are a bit too tight are too tight because I've been working my ass off to fit in them again. Some might even think... 'oh, she's had a bit too much to eat' or 'doesn't she know she should be wearing a size bigger?'
You see, I know they are tight. But that propels me forward. Right now, I'm celebrating that I'm a 10 again! Next step...to say goodbye to the double digits. Whoa. Haven't seen an 8 since high school!
