Don't look back....

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

This morning when I woke up I was tired and not ready to go in for another day of work. I got up and when I went to get dressed I couldn't believe what was happening....

My 'large' work pants, that I usually wear just about every day to work didn't fit! I put them on and after zipping/buttoning them up I let go and realized they didn't feel right. They were extremely baggy! I tried to put on a belt and even that didn't help keep them from attempting to fall off! I'm going to wash and dry them one last time to see if they shrink anymore but I'm just so surprised that between Thursday of last week and this morning when I put them on, that I lost that much around my hips/waist! I mean I've been noticing that my clothes are getting a lot more loose for a few weeks now, but it seems kinda over night for them to just literally not fit and look like they are a whole size to big...

Since I couldn't wear my normal work pants I had to dig out my old work pants from my closet and try them all on to find a pair that fit well enough to go to work. I can get into most of them now and button/zip them but some are still fairly tight. I ended up wearing a pair that was pretty tight around my thighs, but loose in the waist (I sit at a desk most of the day so I'd rather not have the waist cut into my stomach). I felt a little self conscious just because they hugged my thighs but at the same time I didn't really have much choice on what to wear!

When I walked into our break room for lunch, 2 of the ladies I eat with told me how I really looked like I was loosing a lot and that actually made me feel really good - to know that its noticeable to people who see me pretty much every day.

I am just so amazed at the results I'm getting and although I feel like I've lost more than 9 pounds (everyone tells me it looks like I've lost more than that) I am almost more into the results based on inches and not pounds! I am so excited about my results so far and I can't wait to see how much more I can loose....I'm definitely moving forward and not looking back!

    Great job Cassie!

    Nothing makes you want to keep going like baggy clothes and comments from people you know.

    Keep up the hard work!

    I can relate to the clothes falling off. I'm able to wear my old clothes, and they are starting to get too big. I see a shopping day in the future. Congratulations! emoticon emoticon
    You're doing a great job.

    Well done on the loss. I know how good it feels to get into smaller sizes. It is so exciting isn't it? I love knowing when I can wear something a bit smaller it means im not only losing lbs but inches too and I love it. You are doing such a great job. Keep up the great work
