I had to share with you ladies. One of the girls on the H board kind of inspired me to get going and lose some weight. I'm almost 25 and almost 5'8'', and at my most fit I was 125 pounds, which I was happy with-- I know it's not supermodel skinny but I looked good and could wear a size 6 in some brands, 8 in others, and I was very happy with that (even a size 4 in Old Navy even though their sizes are all screwed up, do you know how fab it feels to wear a four? LOL!). I've never been supermodel skinny, I'm not built that way. I always need Large tops and medium bottoms. Anyway I've been kind of shirking off in the last few months and I'd gotten up to about 145 pounds, which freaked me out pretty severely, so when I saw that HLFinn had been working at dropping some weight I decided to give it a go. I started walking more, parking my car further from the entrance to work, I walked in some holiday parades and was eating a lot of rice and fish. And it paid off... because today I tried on my 28" Citizens jeans and my 29" Joe's Jeans, my two favorite pairs which I've had to put in the back of my closet because I couldn't fit into them. I've been wearing my 31"-32" Seven jeans. THEY BOTH FIT PERFECTLY!!!! Not too tight at all, and even my SO came in while I was trying them on and said "Woah. Those look really good. I mean, really good." And he never does that! I just had to share! I kind of stole some pages from Hilary Duff's diet I read about, where she eats a lot of fish and protein like rice, and I'm still enjoying everything I eat because it's so tasty-- (Tilapia at Red Lobster, Rice and Peking Dumplings at PF Chang's) -- and it's working! I don't have a scale, but at 28" waist isn't bad right?
