Getting my run on.


I’ve finally done it.  I’ve broken the 160 pound barrier.  Today Levi is six months old and I’ve been trying for months now to shed some baby weight.  Today I finally broke through 160 and saw a 159.4 on the scale this morning.  I kept getting down to 160.6 and then bouncing back up again.  I don’t know if there was a mental barrier or what but I’m glad to have finally broken through it.  It’s up to me to keep it under 160 now.  And with Halloween and candy right around the corner, it’s not going to be easy!  Yikes!

One of the reasons I wanted to do this Black Friday Challenge (and not just to kick my butt back into gear again) was so I could finally fit into some of my clothes again.  I put the maternity clothes away long ago but I’ve been relegated to a very small portion of my closet to find clothes that fit me.  I have literally 4 pairs of work pants and three pair of jeans that I can squeeze into right now.  Oh, and I dislike 3 of the 4 pair of work pants.  It’s made for some extremely frustrating mornings trying to get dressed for work.  Casual clothing is not much better.  I basically hate getting dressed at all right now.  But there are 6 other pair of work pants and 3 more pairs of jeans that I could wear if I lost just another 5-10 pounds.  Oh, the possibilities of outfits!  Yes, I’d like some new clothes anyways (I haven’t bought myself much in the last 15 months) but just being able to wear anything in my closet?  Now that sounds like heaven.

    Way to go! It does feel great to be able to fit into more of your wardrobe, doesn’t it? It’ll feel even better when you have to go buy some new stuff because everything is too big. :-)
