This morning as I was getting ready for work, and rummaging around through the piles of laundry that have yet to be put away (hey, I’ve been painting, and busy, and I just don’t like laundry  ;-)), I realized that all of my pants for work were dirty.

laundryI had a dilemma. Should I wear unwashed pants to work (which wouldn’t be a huge deal if they hadn’t all gotten sopping wet at the bottom from sloshing around in all the snowy mess we have around here)?

Then I remembered that I had a pair of brand new, never worn, dress pants hiding out in my closet that were still sitting in the shopping bag. I had never worn them because I bought them one day a few months ago before I started Nutrisystem, and when I got them home they didn’t fit. They were a clearance pair of really cute dress pants that I got for like $4.00, but the size was clearly not what it said on the tag (probably why it was on clearance).

I figured, heck…I’ve lost 15 pounds, might as well try them on again and see if they fit now. And guess what? They did! These pants that were one, maybe two sizes too small now fit me! Woot! Woot!

My weight loss has been pretty steady, and I’m taking it a pound at a time, but it’s the little victories like these that make me want to keep pushing on and reaching for my goal. Five more pounds to go!
