Shannan: A Milestone (week 3)

This weekend something exciting happened. I was able to fit into a pair of pants that I had not been able to wear for nearly two years. It was an amazing!

I am not sure what made me decide to try them on, as I mentioned before, I had not been able to wear them since 2006. For whatever reason I did and they fit.

It's such a small thing but I feel like it's given me that extra boost of encouragement I needed. I mentioned to some of you that I had a horrible diet week last week. Between an anniversary dinner and then dinner out with my girlfriends on Friday I hadn't done much at all to move the needle backwards on the scale.

This week I am feeling a new energy. Just that little taste of success has really made me want to loose this weight more than ever. Who knows. Maybe I'll be able to fit in go one of my "going out"shirts from the good ole days by the time this is over?!?!?!?!

Weight lost this week (no idea how this happened): 1 lb
Total Weight Lost: 5 lbs

Update: Ok. Because Amy asked, here is one of my favorite shirts from back in the day. The picture doesn't do it justice!

I have somehow managed to drop a lb. this week despite starting my period this week. If I figure it out I'l let all of you in on the secret.

Please share an example of the "going out" shirts so we can use as a motivating visual!!

That is great news... Here's to discovering a new wardrobe - that you already own!!

Thank you ladies. If you check back in the post I added my favorite shirt. I haven't fit in it in years.... I don't know why I've saved it. I just can't give up hope!

I'm going to hang my Rock and Republic $200 jeans at the front of my closet for motivation. This is a great success. Congrats, hon!

I think that once you start losing and have success it is way easier to stay motivated.
great job..
good luck

Go Shannan! When you can wear that going out shirt, we should go out to celebrate... with you wearing it, of course.

If I lose the weight I will totally wear that shirt out again, even if it's cold out. If I succeed at losing this weight I will be ready to "shake it like a polaroid picture"!
