My back felt better Saturday thankfully so I got some walking in. They hubby and I went up to the track to knock out my step goal for the day. This Texas heat really gets to you so I was super sweaty. I HATE to sweat. Not for the girly reason of eww it is yucky…. well maybe. I just don’t like the feeling of it. I don’t like to feel it running down my head and down my neck or it getting in my eyes. Just like I don’t like the feeling of my husbands fan on me at night. It makes my little hairs tickle my face and it drives me nuts! Anyhow, I bought myself a present to help make it a little more tolerable. A sweat band, and with the lovely words… “I don’t sweat, I sparkle”. LOVE IT! This has done a lovely job of keeping it out of my eyes. I do still feel it running everywhere but I can deal with it. It just means I am doing a good job working out right?
Now on to the good news. I just got in to a size 18 3 weeks ago and they are already baggy. I am thinking I just stretched them out and no way could I be a smaller size. Once again that scale isn’t moving along. The hubby and I had nothing better to do so we went shopping. I picked up a size 16 pair of jeans. All the way to the dressing room I told myself I am not going to cry or be sad if they don’t fit. This is just to see. With my heart racing I took off my 18’s and started slipping on the size 16. I got in to them fine but now the final test…. Do they button? Well, THEY BUTTONED!!!! I had to keep from screaming in the dressing room as I buttoned them WITH EASE!! I just thought, OMG I am walking out of here in a smaller size!!!! The jeans were buy one get one half off so with a big freaking smile on my face went to find another pair. I haven’t been a size 16 in a long time. I started my journey at a size 22 so I am beyond thrilled at how far I have come. This is some big motivation for working out this week. I am well on my way from getting out of the plus size section!
