Single digits

This morning I realized that I was out of clean jeans. Well, that's not completely true. I have a closet full of jeans in various sizes, but I was out of ones in the size I am currently wearing. LOL! So I had 2 choices. Put on a pair of baggy sweats or try to squeeze into a smaller size of Levis. A couple of weeks ago, Jenn at Watch My Butt Shrink posted some of her favorite weight loss tips. Her tips must have stuck with me because one of them was to start wearing smaller clothes as soon as possible. That tip popped into my mind and I decided to go for it. I am happy to say that as I type this I am wearing a size 8. WOO HOO! I seriously can't remember the last time I wore clothes with a single digit size. When I started trying to lose weight a few months ago, I was wearing a 12 (sometimes a 14 for dress pants) and they were getting TIGHT! I'm not saying that the pants I'm wearing now aren't tight, because they are a little too tight, but not crazy. I'm guessing that once I lose another 5 pounds, this will be my new size.

Putting these on has really motivated me today. I have a very full work schedule today, but I am going to make time to work out later today. Thanks for the tip Jenn! It really works! :)
