So Fitting

These past few days I’ve been doing a lot of shopping. No, let me rephrase that — these past few days I’ve been doing a lot of gauging. I’d go into a store, pick up several jeans and sheepishly walk over to the fitting rooms. Slowly, I’d attempt to fit into them. I kept testing the waters, waiting for my bubble to burst and suddenly find myself back where I was almost 50 pounds ago. At the very least I expected this:

…but that never happened! I picked the size lower than my current one and each time I would expect them not to fit. I did this several times over the course of several hours and several stores. They kept fitting quite nicely! I was starting to feel a little giddy. 😉 Anyway, I ended up not buying anything. I didn’t want to shell out money for clothes that I plan to not fit into within a matter of months. It just felt nice to comfortably fit into the size lower and I got a great confidence boost from the whole experience. I can’t wait to return to those stores once I’m maintaining. Heck, I may go before then! 😀

Speaking of confidence, my overall confidence has been on the rise lately. I find that I’m generally more positive and self-assured now. The changes that have occurred in the last few months is startling, but I’ve taken to all of them and I welcome them with open arms. It’s fun to discover who I am “outside” of the weight — it’s almost like unwrapping a gift. Thankfully, I like this Carolina that’s coming out. 🙂

 

Until next time,

Carolina

 

Celebrating Small Victories

We all know what a victory on the scale entails–you gain or lose as you wish to do. Plain and simple. Ultimately, it’s the one that will lead you to the other kind of victory, the non-scale. When losing weight, we can develop something similar to tunnel vision wherein we only focus on the numbers on the scale. And while those numbers do count, they shouldn’t be the only ones that are celebrated and desired. These non-scale victories (NSV) can range from conquering temptation, to dropping inches off your waistline, to having more energy. Anything that is a positive change due to your new lifestyle counts. How great is that? Keep reading to find out what I’m celebrating this week… Read the rest of this entry
