Old New Pants

Hey,
You know how all us 'big boned' types have pants that we passed on our way to our current size, right? Well, I have a special propensity for buying 'goal pants'.
Everytime I wanted to lose weight in the past, I would buy pants that were too small, cause I would be in them soon enough. Well, the last time I tried to lose weight was the 2005/2006 time frame. I went down to around 219 or so if i remember correctly. At that time, around 229 or so, I bought a pair of workout pants one size too small. I never quite got into them. Oh I could pull them up to my hips, but no further and they were tiiiiiiight. Well, I thought for sh*ts and giggles, I would attempt to don these pair of old navy 1x sweat pants. I thought "what the Hey, lets give her a go to see how far I am from them fitting. I pulled them all the way up and can even bend and breath. They aren't the most attractive pants in the world, I look quite tubby in fact. But they fit, my old new goal pants fit. Hows that. That means in all my dieting quests thus far, I have gotten farther than I have ever gotten since 2001. I am the lowest weight since 2001. Pretty good. Like I wrote in an earlier post. 210 was my highest pregnancy weight with my youngest, 190 my starting weight. 179, My highest weight in germany...156 my lowest. I was 138 when I met my husband. I plan to be 132 someday. I will be.
I went to the gym, I did my precor efx. I had to have the resistance on 3 and the elevation on 3 to get my heart rate up to the 130's. I burned 480 calories. I consumed 1600 calories today.
My next weigh in is October 18th. In some ways this is easier and in some ways this is hard. NO official weight for a month is a bit strange, but it allows me to not get so caught up in the time issue. I don't feel so pressured. I can just do what I am supposed to do.
Hope everyone is on program.
hugs,
Chris

I have 3 different sizes in my closet. I have passed by 8 sizes while gaining weight and I am currently down one size and a half. You can do it!

Well done! That is such a good feeling.

I have some donated clothes, some of which fit me already, but some that are just too tight. I will be wearing them before long!
