Healthy You Challenge Week 8

Time to check in! Well I am sitting at the same weight I was a week ago. Not sure how I feel about that. I know its better than a gain, and given some of the things I ate the past weekend and TOM, I am lucky to see a maintain vs a gain. However, I am getting frustrated that the scale has definitely slowed down big time.

Some good things this past week though:

I had to dress up at work last week (we normally can wear jeans), and I discovered on the morning of the day I had to dress up, that all my black pants were huge! So huge, that they wouldnt stay on me. They actually would fall right off to the floor. There was one pair that could stay and I wore those, but it looked like I was wearing clown pants. These pants happened to be the pants I wore at xmas. So since that time, I have obviously done quite well! I went out that night to buy myself some pants that fit. But it was an encourating moment.

Some bad:

Did not get any exercise in this week. I was doing so well! Just didnt happen for me though and there is no good excuse. This week I vow to do better..maybe 2 times?!?

I guess that was my week in a nutshell!

How nice about your pants being too big! I bet it felt really cool to know you are so much smaller now. Thanks for always being so encouraging in your comments on my blog. You really do inspire me by your success!

Woo-Hoo on baggy pants! You're on the right track to get back in the groove. You'll make good choices this week; I can feel it!

I just can't wait to get rid of my clothes when they get too big for me! You're doing great! I think it's a good idea to have a manageable goal like 2 days a week for exercise. You can always work up from there.

WTG on the clothes not fitting, that is always a great feeling! ; )

I can't wait for my own clothes to be too loose on me! Well done!

Kathy said...

"Having" to buy new clothes because the old ones are too big? Priceless!!!

must be a great feeling with the pants....and weight loss is a sinusoidal journey..so dont worry...we all will lose soon...and maintaining is a very positive sign....have a great week ahead.

Awww, pants that once were tight and now are baggy, is one of the great results of a job well done on your weight loss.

Mary said...

A maintain is soo much better than a gain. You can't always lose, and eventually when you maintain (when that is the goal) you will love it. But anyway, that is great about the pants. What an awesome feeling. Keep working hard!

You had a few great weeks of loss so your body probably just needs a week to maintain and adjust. YAY for baggy pants!!!

Hey, the clothes don't lie, especially pants - so congrats! That is awesomeness indeed!

Don't stress about it...you don't have much left so your body is probably just fighting you to hold on. Just keep it up, it will come off!
