Clothes Don't Lie!
Monday, October 21, 2013
Well, after sitting for so long in what I thought was maintenance, I started to see the scale go down. I never thought anything of it, really. I had changed the batteries in the scale, and when DH said his weight was down a bit too, my initial excitement dampened and I just kind of figured the scale must have recalibrated itself somehow.
But clothes don't lie!
And my clothes are getting bigger on me again.
Not that I've gone down a whole clothing size or anything. But I have kept a couple of pairs of size 8 jeans, mostly for when I have to change into street clothes after a workout. I don't want to be struggling in the change room to stuff my sweaty body into something too close-fitting. But now, the bigger jeans are actually quite baggy on me, whereas before they just went on easily without being tight. The size 6 jeans that used to feel like a second skin now fit comfortably.
I think if I could stand to go back to eating less than 1600 calories a day, I might be able to lose that final few pounds and officially be a healthy BMI.
I have to decide if I would be willing to cut back again for what would basically be less than a ten pound loss. (This sounds a lot like what most people think of as "dieting".)
The answer might actually be NO.
