So, today I finally did it! Why it too so long is beyond me but it did. You're probably asking, "What did you do?", right? Well............I went SHOPPING!!!!! That's right, I went to Old Navy and got myself a new pair of pants!! I'm so excited! I was like a little kid in a candy store too.
Now, you're probably thinking, "Yeah, so...big deal!" But it is a big deal because the whole reason I went to buy new pants is, since I've been losing weight, the pants I do own have become quite baggy on me. As Paul says, "You look like you have a load in your pants". Oh boy! Just what I want to look like.
As I was there, looking around at the different styles and colors of jeans, I thought I better grab myself the next size down and in case I'm lucky, I grabbed two sizes down. I go into the dressing room and to my wondrous eyes do I see??? The two sizes down fits me!!! *giddy laugh* I can't believe it. I can't remember the last time I was able to wear this size. Oh gee, let me think here for a minute........hmm?.......maybe 10-12 years ago.
Just before I started this whole Weight Watchers journey, I never thought that I would be at my goal weight by years end. To this day, I have lost 25.8 lbs and I just need to lose 8 more lbs to be at my goal weight. What a fantastic year this has been!! Every year for the last 13 years, I have made my New Years resolution to lose weight but this year I have finally succeeded!!
Here is a quote that I love:
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
