Say hello to skinnier jeans

The hard work is paying off. Down another pound for a total of 8. While I don’t see the difference, I did have a couple big wins.

Work is keeping me busy and I had hockey duty last night. I normally would set up in the café area, grab some greasy dinner, and work until my son was done with goalie lesson. Instead, I went to the mall to get walking and climbing stairs. The food dangers were everywhere – Lindt Chocolate, Cinnabon, Starbucks and the food court. I walked past them all.

I did stop in Ann Taylor for work clothes and found the most adorable lilac-blue blouse. I pulled a large and then picked up the medium on a whim.  Guess what, the medium fit!  I couldn’t believe it. I even had to crow to the salesperson.

This morning I woke up to a very yucky wintery day. While jeans aren’t prohibited at work, they are frowned upon during the week. But, I saw an old pair of jeans a size smaller than I normally wear in my drawer. Still glowing from last night’s victory, I put them on. Oh, and they fit! In the end, bad weather day plus getting into skinnier jeans, I strutted into work wearing them proudly.

Love my skinner jeans and can’t wait to show off my new blouse. Here’s to the skinny strut!
