I'm experimenting with giving myself an incentive for weight loss and I'm really not sure that I'm comfortable with it yet.
My birthday was on the 1st of February and my DH asked me what I wanted. Well, my near term goal was to wiggle into some size 16W jeans that I really liked. Now, I know that I can't fit into them now, but I thought that it would give me the incentive to really focus on getting there.
So now my birthday has come and gone, and I have a really cute pair of jeans hanging on my dresser that I can't zip or button. I have no idea how much I have to lose to be able to wiggle into them.
( I'm currently wearing a size 18W. ) Anyway, I'm starting to get really impatient and wondering if I made a mistake.
I watch them call to me everyday and I'm a VERY slow loser. So I think I may not be the type of person to handle this kind of an incentive. I'm perfectly happy with my overall weight loss and rate at which I'm losing, but it is starting to slow a bit as expected.
So hopefully, sometime before 2012 I will have a new pair of jeans to wear! Just remind me not to do this again!!!!!
It is just too frustrating... I guess I need something that I can "celebrate" my progress by using.... not something that is a tease! Well, now I know.
PS. The snow is all melted in Austin now. Back to normal for a while. Yeah!!
