Let your clothes be your guide...

Initially when I started losing weight (this time), I thought 145 was the magic number. That was the ultimate weight goal in my future....5'5" and 145. Now, I'm reevaluating and I've decided that I don't care what the number says. I just want to fit in a size 6ish. Even when I started high school I was a size 9. I don't even know what it's like to wear a size 6. But, I bought 2 pairs of pants in size 6 today. Knock me over with a feather! I can get them on and buttoned, but they are Tight. They are perfect though as motivational pieces.
I decided it was time for the concrete end goal. So that's it. Size 6. I'm not really worried about the number on the scale, it just drives me crazy anyway. As long as I can fit my tush into my goal size, that's good enough for me.
I've still got some work ahead of me. I've probably got to lose another 10-15 lbs to really be comfortable in a size 6. That's okay though, I have my final goal. (Seriously, a size 6???a year ago I would have told you that you were crazy!) So, keep moving forward!

YAY! Good for you for getting closer and closer to your goal. And I think its a good idea to move away from weight. That number can be deceiving as you put on muscle and get stronger anyway. Best of luck with the size 6!!
