Sometimes, for some people, there comes a point where your clothes no longer fit, you hate how you look, and the idea of going out and buying a new pair of jeans that you can actually do up seems just… ridiculous. I don’t want to be this size, why the heck would I go and spend good money a pair of jeans to fit someone I don’t want to be? When it comes down to it, you can either admit defeat, go buy bigger, fatter clothes… or you can become the person you want to be.
I reached that point several months ago, I didn’t have any jeans that fit anymore, in fact the only pants I could fit into were jeggings and yoga pants (I even remember having to wear yoga pants when I had to appear in court as a character witness several months back because I didn’t have any dress pants that fit)… thankfully, I live in Vancouver where everyone and their dog wears yoga pants… everywhere, all the time… so it’s not that bad. But still, it would be nice to wear something that isn’t stretchy from time to time.
But I am proud to say, that as I sit here, typing this post… I am wearing jeans! The non-stretchy kind! It may seem silly to most, but it is in fact a small victory for me 🙂
Speaking of jeans, a future victory I hope to achieve (though it probably won’t be for several months yet) is to fit into my most favourite pair of jeans I have ever owned. I bought them when I was 19 and about 57lbs lighter than I am now, and unfortunately I haven’t fit into them in years. It’s actually kind of a funny story… I wanted a new pair of jeans, so I went over to the mall, tried on a few pairs, and when I tried this particular pair on they looked so damn good I thought to myself “I don’t care how much these cost, I must have them!!”. So I naively walked up to the cashier to pay for them without looking at the tag, and nearly had a heart attack when the bill was over $200 for a single pair of jeans… I have now dubbed them my goal jeans, and I will wear them again someday!!
Anyways, that’s about it for today other than to say it seems I have found my keto stride and am making good progress. I have lost 4.2lbs in the last week and hopefully by next week I will have reached both the 25% mark, as well as the 20lbs down mark (which means reward time!).
Keto on, friends!
