Progress!

I've finally seen some signs of progress, and I am THRILLED!

Yesterday I wasn't sure what I wanted to wear to the inlaws' for the Super Bowl. I was standing in my closet and decided that while I was thinking about that I would see how much more I had to lose to fit in my size 18 capris.

I tried them on at the end of November. One pair was given to me by a friend and the others I had bought at Thanksgiving (yes, a size smaller than would fit then. They didn't have them in a 20!) I had about a 1.5-2 inch gap when I attempted to fasten them.

So, I pulled out one pair to see what the gap looked like now when I pulled them togather in an attempt to fasten them. Surprisingly enough, no gap! I was able to fasten them. While standing up. Without sucking my gut in as far as possible. I contined to try on two pair of size 18 khakis that were laying in the same stack. It had been even longer since I tried these on. They both fit as well. One pair I'm leaving out of the rotation because the zipper likes to unzip itself and these pants are a little tight. The others I wore yesterday. It was nice to find I could wear them now. Especially considering I haven't felt successful on the weight loss front lately. They are still a tad tighter than I like, but they fasten and I can breathe. It's a nice feeling. I still have two or three more pair of khakis in that size that I didn't try on. I might try them tonight...
