I stopped by Old Navy yesterday to return some things and looked at some shorts real quick because my size 18's were just looking yucky on me. I tried on 16's and they fit great. So I bought a pair of 14's also without trying them on. I decided I wanted some goal shorts to keep me motivated.
I got up this morning and tried on my goal shorts to see how far I needed to go and THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!! Buttoned up, zipped up, OMG! I couldn't freakin believe it.
I was a little down b/c I'd weighed myself when I got up at 5am this morning and the scale actually went up to 193 (from 192) so I wasn't looking for them to actually fit.
You all know just how long of a journey this has been for me. Unlike all of you, I haven't seen the early victories and instead its taken me much longer to feel this. So, my body MUST be changing even though the scale isn't moving....
BTW - I ran my longest yet yesterday - 6.2 miles! Today I scaled it back to 4.8 so I don't wear my body out. I definitely felt it today after such a workout yesterday and I can tell I need to let me body recover a little bit. I also ate some ice cream cake yesterday (the first high sugar sweet I've had in 3 weeks) at a birthday party and I definite felt a difference in how I felt. My body like the clean eating and its an incentive to stay on it. The sugar made me feel a bit sluggish and tired and just not as much energy as I've been feeling over the last few weeks.
Regardless, this feeling is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! I like they way I look in those shorts!!!!
