I am so excited today! Sharon gave me some pants a few weeks ago that she'd shrunk out of (let's hear a WOOT WOOT for Sharon, who's lost something like 70 pounds). Anyway, They're size 18, and I have other 18s that fit, but this one pair she gave me didn't. I could get them on, but they were too poochy to wear in public, plus they were just tight enough around the waist that they were uncomfortable. I decided to give it a shot, and I'm happy to report that I am wearing them dancing tonight! They are, admittedly, slightly poochy at the pockets, but my top covers that well enough. They are quite comfortable in the waist. Huzzah!
I always have this trouble with pants--my waist is always much smaller than my hips (even when it's way thicker than it should be), so pants that are big enough for my hips, butt,, thighs, and belly are too loose in the waist. Add in my very curved lower back, and it's a real issue. I can never, ever wearl low rise pants. Ever. Even when I'm thin. Oh well...
Breakfast: burrito with carb control tortilla, eggs, spinach, a little cheddar cheese
Lunch: spinach sauteed with garlic and a little olive oil, tuna, whole wheat crackers
Dinner: cold roasted chicken, lite caesar salad
Off to Tango in a few minutes, and I feel pretty! I even put on jewelry. I can definitely see a difference in my face and around my neck and collar bones and shoulders, even though the scale is moving slowly. As long as it keeps moving and my clothes keep fitting better, that's what's important!
Have a great holiday weekend!
