Michele continues on in week 4 with a non-scale victory!
It’s been four weeks today since I started “working” with Alicia and Kara at A Healthy Balance. It is so great listening to their advice, expertise, and support. Alicia keeps me on track with my exercise and Kara keeps me on track with nutrition. I definitely have the motivation to do this, but knowing I have them behind me, I know I won’t slip.
I hit a milestone this week and while I knew I’d do it at some point, I didn’t realize how great it would feel! My friend, Sue saw me in my favorite Talbots jeans and said, ” I can definitely tell today that you are losing weight and you CANNOT wear those jeans another day! You need a smaller size.” Off to the store we went and she was right! I did need a smaller size. I could not believe my eyes in the dressing room when I buttoned and zippered and saw that they were a perfect fit! I couldn’t open the door fast enough to model for Sue.
While this size is certainly not my goal size, it’s exciting for now. I am keeping my old jeans as a reminder that I do not ever want to wear them again. They are folded in my gym bag and whenever I need an extra dose of motivation and encouragement, I will try them on. Bootcamp is hard, but the thought of wearing those jeans again is not an option. I will gladly (ok fine, maybe not gladly!) struggle through planks, lunges, pushups, and whatever else Alicia throws my way because I know the end result will be worth it. If I felt this good trying on these jeans, imagine how I’ll feel when I try on my goal jeans?
Be Healthy. Be Balanced.
