I do my weekly weigh ins on Saturday mornings and was really hoping when I stepped on the scale yesterday I would have finally beaten the 180's. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this staring at me:
|Suck it 180's. Notice the new toe color :)|
This week I was forced to buy the "pants of shame". What are the pants of shame you ask? Well they are the pants you have to buy in a size that you never wanted to be again but circumstances have arisen that force you back into them. Pants of shame sizes can be different depending on the person but everyone has had to buy them at one time or another. I was hoping I could move from my maternity jeans into my bigger sized jeans I already had, but alas even after my weight loss this week my"fat"jeans were still too tight. I reached my breaking point on my maternity jeans and couldn't handle the constant pulling on the elastic panels to keep them from slipping off of me. Plus it's summer in Texas and I needed something a little less covering than jeans. I went to Old Navy and found a pair of jean capri's, unfortunately even with the stretchiness of this particular style I was forced to buy my size of shame...size 16. I spent the majority of my teens in this size and when I finally got down into my 12's and 10's last year I vowed never to return, but here we are. To add insult to injury I had to pay full price as they were not on sale and I really needed them. Oh well, I figure if things keep going well I can wear them with a belt soon and by the end of the summer I can donate them as a symbol of reaching my goals.
|These are the pants (or capri's) of shame|
10 pounds lost at 172- Body Wrap and Facial
20 pounds lost at 162- Evening at Winstar Casino (looking for friends to join me)
30 pounds lost at 152- A night away from home (sleeping in is key) and a spa day
40 pounds lost at 142- Appointment with a personal stylist to put together outfits and help me buy new clothes
I'm obviously saving up for the last one, but I have wanted to do that forever and I think it will be a great motivator for me. I have heard from a few of my friends about my posts motivating them to get moving and reach their goals and that makes me feel awesome. That alone keeps me motivated to stick to it (but my reward goals don't hurt either). Have a great week everybody, I would love to hear from anyone who is working on their weight loss goals as well!
