Holding on to old jeans

Today my abs were sore.  All day.  Every so often I'd pass a mirror and check to see if my belly was as ripped as it felt ...and each time I was disappointed.  Yes, I'm silly.  I know.

Like after a day of eating extra healthy and some rigorous yoga I'm digging through my closet to try on my old size 6 jeans...

I never really struggled with weight until I had baby #3 and turned 30.  (Both within 3 weeks!)  And over the last few years I've become one of those obsessive, baggy-clothes wearing, ...females.  I get frustrated that it's a mere 15-20 extra pounds that seem to have quite a hold on me.  Why can't it just go away??? 

Nobody told me that my warm hat looked like one of those Russian ushankas!  (had to look that word up...)

So I recently dove into a fitness challenge with a group of friends.  Let's see if I can get my snacking under control and slim a few pounds off. 

'Cause in two months I'll be running along, somewhere between mile 1 and 26, and hopefully not cursing this extra baggage.

TWO MONTHS PEOPLE!!!

We are SO doing this! And I think this fitness challenge should extend from 10 weeks to maybe .... death!

I have the best weight loss plan ever! Its called moving, lost 3lbs this week already! kidding aside I get how hard it is to loose those last 20bls, I have just 20lbs and I would weigh what I did when I got married. My metabolism has slowed way down even with exercise my body simply does not want to let it go! good luck on your challenge its fun!

Is this your first marathon? You'll do awesome! Size 6? I think maybe when I was 12 I might have worn a size 6. But yeah, I know what you mean about the jeans. I look at jeans I still have in my closet and wonder how in the world I ever got those on and why in the world I've been hanging on to them for more than 5 years. :)

I can't wait to hear how your challenge goes. I'm loving round 2 of mine. :)

If we throw out the old jeans we might as well die now, because all hope will be gone.

Ditto to everything you just said except the doing anything about it. When we visit in July you will have to inspire me. Just ain't happening right now.

Yes, you can put the award on your sidebar (if you want), and then pass it along to any number of your favorite blogs.
