As I was trying on my smaller-sized capris yesterday I experienced another new feeling. I put them on, realized they fit, was ecstatic and then was already thinking how wonderful it will be when these get baggy and I’m trying on another size. It made me want to stick with it and keep seeing more good results in the future.
“Made me want to stick with it” is a very new feeling for me.
I’ve heard people say that as soon as they started seeing the pounds drop they were just that much more motivated to keep going on their diet/weight loss plan and I NEVER could relate to this.
The only other time I lost a large amount of weight I was happy to see myself go down a size, but I never really felt like, “Oh yea!! I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing!!!” I was just happy and then continued to go up and down at such a slow pace that it was months before I went down another size. I wasn’t really sticking to a plan or changes and maybe that’s why I never felt that way.
However, this time it is different. When I showed my husband the new capris his response was, “Good! Just keep at it!” and I wasn’t offended (like “Of course, but can’t you be happy that I’ve made it down this much?!?!”. I agreed with him.
Yep, I’m excited to be getting into a smaller size of clothes, but I’m more excited to think that soon these will be loose and I’ll be needing another size of clothes, and then another, and possibly another…. JOY!!!!
That was the most exciting thing for me too. Putting on a size smaller, knowing it was maybe a wee bit tight at the moment, but realizing in no time at all it'd be too big!
Way to go!
