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.
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.
