Size 10 jeans !

YAY !! Last night I went and bought a pair of size 10 jeans !!!!! I know that there is no ways that I have a size 10 figure (and probably will really only ever be a size 12 when I am at goal weight) but it is lovely to look at the label and see ‘SIZE 10’ on it !!! I did turn all the tags over trying to find the words “Generous Fit” on them - but to no avail !!! So I took the size 10’s home feeling very pleased with myself. (Mind you – there is a slight muffin effect – but, like M, I wear my shirts over and so nobody will see anyway !!) Al was busy trying on jeans and shirts when I was trying these on, so he didn’t get to see them in the shop but I put them on to show him when we got home and he just loved how I looked in them. He was saying this morning that he thinks I am disappearing and hopes that I am not going to get anorexic – I had to laugh at him because he knows how much I love my food – there is no way I could ever become anorexic BUT hopefully I will be maintaining nicely at goal when he gets home again.
Yesterday I was sitting at my desk dreaming of a Twirl chocolate. So, decided to take the long walk around to the vending machine (haven’t been there to visit since about March 05) but when I got there a found that they now stock Boost !!!! Stood for a while before actually buying it but then took a slow walk around the uni gardens eating it and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. I have counted the points and now have to choose one day for muffins – Saturday OR Sunday (normally we only have on Saturday morning but with Al flying at 10am – we may have on Sunday) Anyway, it is a sacrifice I will have to make seeing as I made the choice to have the Boost. I didn’t feel guilty about it because I did count the points (as opposed to my old trick of not counting the points because nobody saw me eating / I wasn’t sitting down when I ate / I didn’t track it so it doesn’t count / or whatever other reason you can think of for not counting sugar points !!). What I did find out though, is that I don’t feel very well after eating a whole chocolate by myself !!!! What happened to the lady who could sit down and eat 2 chocolates without even blinking ????? I think that I much prefer the option of a bite of each of Al’s and Kaitlin’s chocolates when they have rather than having a whole one myself and making myself feel sick.We went to school last night for the talk about the subjects which Kaitlin will have to choose next year – they have to choose 4 out of 24 – quite a difficult choice to make when you are 13 and really aren’t sure of what you want to do in life. The good thing is that she has made some good choices and we are happy with what she wants to do. We have some friends coming around for dinner tonight and a busy day planned for tomorrow – Al needs a hair cut and the grass needs to be done – two things which I really need to happen !!!!!!!

Take care everyone – have a great weekend and be good !

Well done on the Sz10 jeans. I fully understand about the sick feeling from the chocolate. I never could eat a whole choc anyway but I suppose that is a good thing. Have a great time enjoying Al's company before he heads off again. Take care. XX

Hey, a size ten is a size ten. Congratulations! And good on you for counting the points and making adjustments to your eating plan accordingly. Now, if only I could take a leaf out of your book...

WOO HOO! I like the sound of Size 10, even with a muffin but as long as there's no crack showing ;-)

The whole "don't lose to much" concern is valid I think from our loved ones. The WW program really teaches us the value of nutrition and health though so I think we're all alright. Just look at our chosen goal weights to know we've got our heads screwed on. To some people we do seem to be losing an obvious amount of weight but we know what's going on and talking about it is good.

Urghh, the chocolate aftermath. I learnt my lesson last weekend LOL.

I hope you guys have a great weekend!

You sexy thang you. Well done Linda. I am so happy for you that you found a pair that you liked. And don't sell yourself short, with all the exercise you have been doing you have whittled that butt nicely into size 10 shape. OK you are not a size 10 AND 6 foot tall - but that's OK!

Have a great weekend and well done on your boost / muffin compromise.:)

HUGE bravo on the size 10 jeans!!!!
Awesome :)

Good luck with Al's test results....hope they come back fine.

Also wanted to commend you on that Boost bar. Firstly I have to say they are the yummiest chocolates on earth...Mmmm! I used to eat one every weigh-in night after my once a week take-away. But thankfully I seem to have sickened myself of them for now...thank god!
I thought it was great though that you made a concious decision to have one....you enjoyed it...then tracked it. Bloody Well Done!!

Goal weight is just around the next bend for you!!!

Cheers P

SIze 10 jeans. Would you have believed that was possible a few months ago? I am sure you won't want to wear anything else. Good luck with Als test results and make the most of the weekend together before he leaves.
