Man, what a week. I got sick Monday night and have been couch-bound since. I couldn't bring myself to blog but I'm back!

It took several months, but then about a month or so ago it hit me. I noticed that most of my work pants were too big. Could it be? Yes! I was finally seeing the results from running!

I tried on a dress that I used to wear and it fits like a bag.

Results! See you later dress! Wait, I mean, hope I never have to see you later!

So last week I bought my first pair of skinny jeans and jean leggings at Express.

I never thought I'd be able to wear skinny jeans! I might not look super skinny in them like the above model, but I feel confident, and that's what matters.

But if I keep eating these.... I might not be able to fit into those skinny jeans! ;)

I discovered these chips at QuikTrip, and gosh, I wish I hadn't. They're so good. The nacho twists are delicious, too. Darn you, Tom's!

What piece of clothing helps you feel great about yourself?


  1. WOOT !!!!
    Yesss! Don't you love it when that happens????
    Way to go...keep running....(and stay away from Tom's goods;))

  2. yay! It's always so awesome to know someone is feeling great about themselves! I'm in the middle of try to lose my senior 40ish pounds. I only have 15 more to go, but its so nice to be able to throw out jeans and tell yourself you'll never see them again ;) Way to go girl!

  3. Congratulations!!! Keep up the running and maybe you can still have the odd Nacho ring haha

  4. Dawn and Alice, thanks! I'll try to stay away from Tom's except for the occasional treat!

    Michaela, that is so awesome! Keep up the great work!

  5. Way to go!!! I can't believe how big that dress looks on you. Crazy!!

  6. I know! It was always a little loose but now it just slides off! I can't believe it!
