I’m pretty much convinced that Sensa works.
Last week I told you that it was Time To Commit To Losing Weight. I weighed in at 124lbs and had lost 1 pound so far. Well now it’s the third week of January and I now weigh 121lbs!!! I am so excited!!! I am just 2 pounds away from comfortably wearing my pre-pregnancy pants.
I can’t tell you how elated I was to have to go looking for smaller pants. I went from wearing a size 10 in October – the biggest I’ve ever been – to needing a belt to keep up size 8 pants in December. This month I’m wearing some of my skinny size 6 pants and yesterday I actually pulled out a pair of size 4 jeans. And they fit.
I never thought that committing to losing this weight would make me feel so damn good. But it does. And it makes me want to keep going!
I don’t have hopes of being able to get down to my goal weight of 102lbs, but I figure I’ll be pretty satisfied if I can get down to around 110lbs. I only have 12 more pounds to go!
- BTW, don’t freak on me! I know 103lbs sounds anorexic to a lot of people, but I am a very petite 5’2″ tall and used to be a professional ballerina and dance teacher. Since I’m not dancing 6 days a week anymore, I know it’s unrealistic to be 102lbs, so that’s why my goal weight is around 110lbs.
My friend Ashley is borrowing all of my size 2 skinny jeans as her “fat” pants… She just had her second baby in July and normally wears size 0 or 00 jeans. (Seriously, what size is double zero? Is that smaller than 0?) I don’t know how she does it… But anyway, I would LOVE to be able to borrow back all those jeans as my “skinny pants”. I hate thinking about how the smallest jeans I’ve ever fit into being someone else’s 6 months post-partum fat pants! Ugh. If that isn’t motivation to lose weight, I don’t know what is.

Granted, that for a little over a month, I have actually started exercising too. I don’t think that’s making me lose weight as much as it’s just building muscle though… I’m doing a 10 minute workout with a DVD I got on Gaiam.com. I try to do it 5 days a week, but it seems like I’m only fitting in 3 or 4 times a week.
In conclusion, I want to get down to 120lbs before February 1st. Be sure to stay updated on my weight loss. It may inspire you to lose those extra 10 pounds!
