These jeans were my rock bottom. The fat on my sides used to lop over the sides. They were tight around my thighs. They were the only jeans I had that fit and I refused to buy a larger size. That is when I decided it was time for a change. I couldn't live that size anymore. Not only was it unhealthy, but it made me unhappy with myself. So I started working out 3 times a week and making changes in my diet. It started out slowly, but when I started feeling differences in my clothing, it only motivated me more.
Believe me when I say, if I can do it, ANYONE can. I was a mindless eater. I gave absolutely no thought to the things that I would eat in a day. Now, I know that if I want to have ice cream later, I need to make a few adjustments in my diet during the day. There isn't anything I deprive myself of.
Even on days that I had absolutely no motivation to work out, I would convince myself that it was only 30 minutes. I could do it. After I did it, I was glad I got off my butt.
Last night, my husband was reading the blog and said that he couldn't believe that I had lost almost 70 pounds. It is hard to tell when you see your spouse every day and it comes off gradually. I sent him this picture this morning and asked, "Do you believe it now?"
I will never wear those jeans again.
