Reality check

Things have been going pretty well on the eating and exercise front. I'm frustrated that the scale is not moving, but I know I just have to keep going. I had appointments this morning at the weight control center with the doc, nutritionist, and exercise guy. Everyone said to just keep going that something will give soon. The doc ordered a test to find my resting metabolic rate (which I am secretly nerdishly excited about), and the nutritionist recommended food logging (big surprise).

One thing that really been bothering me lately is that I seem to be getting a lot of compliments again about how great I look, blah blah blah. Don't get me wrong, I love hearing it, but I'm having a hard time with it knowing that I'm actually up a few pounds and my jeans have been feeling tight. Bah. Anyway, I thought today I would give myself a reality check. Off I went to T@rget to try on some jeans -- the same jeans in the same size that were hanging in my closet. And you know what? Damn if they didn't fit just fine -- a little big in the thighs even. Dang stretchy jeans -- they SHRINK!!! Well, at least I know the clothing situation isn't quite as dire as I thought. I even picked up a few new pairs of exercise pants.

Ain't no "X' on that tag, baby!

LOL @ Ain't no "X". It is an amazing feeling. It sounds like you either reached a plateau or gaining muscle, which we all know weighs more than fat. I feel the same way at times too. Those stretchy jean are bittersweet but we gotta love them.

It's weird how the body changes even when the weight is static. Over Christmas I had a bunch of family commenting about how much more weight I've lost, when I was actually exactly the same the last time I saw them and had been stuck on a 5 month plateau.

Ha ha, isn't that an excuse we usually use when we are gaining weight :o) funny to actually have it happen!!!!!!!

Say goodbye to X's forever lady! I think anyone who tells us to log our food should be shot. LOL.
