OK, I know I have a tendency to stress out over the scale and that my weight naturally fluctuates as a result of being a woman, not due to sporadic efforts on my part.
With that in mind, I try to measure my success based on meeting certain goals.
In this case, it was a pair of size four jeans.
While a little snug (they are skinny jeans, after all), I am formally wearing size four jeans at both Express and Old Navy. I’m a solid five at Target and I only wear a six in Lucky Brand due to my wider hips (they don’t seem to like those bones for some reason). Even at the infamous Forever 21, I’m wearing their size 26-27 jeans and their dresses (mostly) in a small.
Regardless of what the scale says this Wednesday, I feel like I’m seeing success (finally).
And seeing is believing!
Bon appetit, my friends!
