“Hi, Hazel! I’m so happy to tell you that I lost 8lbs now 🙂 thanks a lot!”
That was the message I got this morning from one of the participants in my weight loss accountability group. I LOVE it when I get messages like that. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside that I helped her start her weight loss journey.
Ever since I started running my accountability groups (aka challenge groups), I’ve made myself workout. Like I told you in a previous post, I have to workout. I’m asking my challengers to do the same. I feel it would be wrong for me not to. I don’t want to be one of those coaches who sit on the sideline, telling people what to do. I need to be in the game too. I help them, and they help me. It’s a team effort, a win/win!
To keep the warm and fuzzy momentum going, this morning I decided to try on these black slacks I got from Banana Republic. I haven’t been able to wear these slacks in a year since I couldn’t button or zip up the pants. The last time I wore these slacks, I was so uncomfortable, I felt like a container of croissant dough that just popped. Since I was at work, I couldn’t change or get a belt. I ended up getting a rubber band and MacGuyvering a loop around the front button and through the button hole. I HAD to let loosen the pants. It was ridiculous and I was ashamed for letting myself gain the weight in the first place.
Anyway – I tried on the slacks this morning and they FIT, and they’re COMFORTABLE! WOO HOOO! Happy dance time!! I’ve lost a few inches around my waist thanks to sticking to working out. I was following the calendar from the workout program called 21 Day Fix in January. This month, I’m following the calendar for 21 Day Fix Extreme. I just started the second week, and I can definitely tell that my muscles are starting to get more defined. The fact that I can comfortably fit into my Banana Republic slacks is proof these workouts and my daily Shakeology are working for me, and can also work for you.
Do you have a moment that made you want to do a happy dance?
