Well well..I've had horrible weigh ins the past 2 weeks.
Am I working out?..YES,6 days a week
Am I eating right?..Uh ya!
emoticonHeres where it gets good..I know I have a loss for this weigh in..Let me hear you say OH YA BABY!! Come on please say it..for me.

The purpose for this blog is to share the fact that about 8 years ago I was going out with this guy named Charles (long before I met my hubby).
I was shopping,and wanted to buy these cute silk "shorty shorts" .Well of course I wanted to wear these when he came over emoticonTMI I apologize,LOL!

So I get home..THEY DON'T FIT!! emoticon Not even close.I guess I had forgot silk doesn't stretch! LOL!!

So tonight I decide to go drag them out..blow the dust off of them..
THEY FIT!! emoticon emoticon emoticon BUT they are almost TOO big,LOL!
Still its a great moment.I think as long as I was still losing I wouldn't care if any of my clothes fit,LOL!
I have kicked up my strength training A LOT.I never thought of that during those 2 weigh ins.

I have a question..Does anyone still think of themselves as BIG?
Ok I've lost 70 lbs.But I still feel like I cant sit on certain things.Or I cant fit in a certain pair of pants..Its almost like when I look at something my eyes havent adjusted.Like they still see the HUGE girl..When in all reality I can fit in those pants.I'm not sure I explained that right emoticon
If not oh well.Don't hold it against me.

Before I go..Wishing ALL the Warrior's a Good Weigh in!

God Bless my Spark family,Christina emoticon

    I deal with that same mentality. I had been putting off trying on a dress I wore to my daughter's wedding last year because when I bought it I didn't feel good in it because it was on the edge of being too tight. Alright, it WAS too tight. I felt very self conscious in it and this past Sunday I put it on and it fit pretty good. Of course I would still like it to be looser before I will feel really good in it. Sometimes I look in the mirror and am very happy and see the progress, other times I look and just see the fat that is still there. I don't know how long until the thoughts will sort and become accurate.

    I was used to tight fits when sitting at the movies, or at concerts, etc. But the last time I went I fit easily in the seat - what a rush!

    Good for you! Keep up the good work!

    Funny, I know what you mean,I went Rummage saleing with my mom and daughter one weekend,and my daughter picked up a pair of blue jeans and said hey mom here's you a pair of blue jeans,and when I looked back at her I said "Oh your funny", I can't get my ass in them..And she said "Bull" I bet you can, so I got them anyways "knowing that I won't get them on "LOL" But when I got home I wash them and about two days later I thought I would show her that they won't fit,BUT I'm the one who got Surprised cause they did fit,,and I felt pretty good about that, it was a wonderful feeling..

    I STILL feel like a "big girl" a lot of the time and it's hard to remember that I'm so much smaller than I used to be. And I've been maintaining for over a year now!!! (with some fluctuations but nothing compared to what I've lost.) It's a big mental adjustment. :)

    That is AWESOME!! emoticon Rock those short shorts, just don't forget to Nair first. (Uh oh, am I dating myself!??)

    Honey, I have trouble with my eyes now. I remember one time looking at myself before going out thinking I looked really good for once and then had my picture taken twice and in both pics I looked AWFUL. Somehow in the mirror I didn't see the triple chin, the apple cheeks and all of the other things that just horrified me. I know to expect that losing too. I think our body images will always be a little skewed but luckily we have others to remind us what sexy beasts we are as we get healthier!

    I haven't had those moments yet but I read it alot of peoples blogs and in articles by sp. That is why I am trying to embrace my current curves in hopes I won't have alot of issues when I am down the weight I want to be at. I wish you the best of luck and all I can say is start loving the new sexier you!

    Seeing yourself differently is going to be one of the hardest things that you will ever, ever do. I know from experience. No matter how much I hear positive things from other people, I just don't see my thighs being much thinner than they were when I was 200+. It is something that has taken a lot of time, but I think I am getting better (although my dh will tell you that I'm not! lol). I think that as I start to see my actual body fat percentage go down, that will make a huge difference too.

    How awesome it is for you that those shorts don't fit now!! I am so very happy for you with that!!

    Stay true to your goals. Go buy a new pair of silk shorty shorts!! lol

    Have a great Monday!!

    Girl you know you rock!!!...strength training could make you feel that you're stuck(when you look at the scale). However, you lose inches rapidly and then one day (after weeks of vexation)you step on the scale and voila!!! you've just dropped 4 or 6 even 8 lbs, so keep going girlie. Sweat it out!!!! emoticon

    That is such a thrill when you try something on that you couldn't get into and to have it almost be too big. That's been happening to me all summer. Woo Hoo!! Feels Great doesn't it.
