I made a $19 bet on myself - a commitment of sorts

Saturday, March 03, 2012

I'm needing some new jeans for work.

I bought some a little over a year ago and I like them but -- fading a good bit from all the washing. Anyway - they're $27 -- plus $8 shipping + $2 tax. And if you spend over $50 shipping is free -- that makes the second pair $19 instead of $37. So, no-brainer, right?

The continued success of my diet buddies (VABCHLOSER, ALLISON, SPIFF, MALCONTENT) has inspired me. See if you can determine the commitment I made.

Note: When I uploaded the pic I wasn't sure if if would be readable so I'll come back and edit the post if necessary.

Well, of course you can't see the pic well enough to determine the story. Should I end the drama or should I post a link to a better pic? I'm not really known for giving up. Here's a link to a better pic:

I get these in the "Tarmac" color.

And lastly, if you want to read my other blog, here's a link for that.

    OMG - you BLOGGED! It's been like... a year! Hehehe!

    Very exciting, man! 34 inch waist! I've been debating investing in some goal jeans myself. I'm a solid (maybe a tiny bit loose on a good day) size 8, and have been since October. I went back through my data the other day and realized that I've been maintaining at an average of 159.6 since October 20th. That's +5, -5 depending on the week, but the average of all of the weeks together is 159.6. Sweet! (That also happens to be my weigh in number today.) I thought I would be upset that I haven't seen movement in a while, but my body has been tightening up and honestly I'm pretty happy not to have gained given that I've been pretty well eating what ever I want about half the time. Guess that's the definition of maintenance, huh? I'd still like to get to 145 (gotta match the handle after all, right?) so I should buckle down again for sure. I bought some stickers and colored pens to write my accomplishments on a calendar (go ahead and laugh now, but that kind of goofy stuff actually helps motivate me - ha!).

    Anyway, glad to see you blogging AND being so confident in yourself! Just make sure you put those smexy jeans where you can see them instead of up on a shelf gathering dust.
