Non-Scale Victory!

Daily Activity: 45 Mins on Elliptical (4 APs)

Today we went out shopping because I desperately needed some new pants. All the ones I have are literally hanging off of me. I remember buying them not too long ago and they were very snug. I've been trying to shop at cheap places for clothes because I am going through them so quickly. Some I haven't even gotten to wear more than once before they are too baggy.

Anyway, we went to TJ Maxx and Ross today and I bought a couple pairs of size 12 jeans. 12! I haven't worn size 12's in over 10 years! Its hard to believe that I've gone from a size 22 to a size 12 in 6 months. I literally did a happy dance in the dressing room.

Tonight we went over to a friends house and had a cookout. They were so thoughtful and called me several times to ask what kind of meat I wanted, vegetables, etc. I ended up having grilled chicken breast with spinach and mushrooms on top, with stir fryed veggies and some mashed potatoes (with butter and sour cream). I couldn't be completely boring!

I'm a little worried that the sodium from the soy sauce in the stir fry my effect my weigh-in in the morning, but it'll be ok. I just thought it was thoughtful of them to do something so healthy for me.

Here are a couple pictures of me in my new size 12's:
