A few weeks ago I was perusing around the mall and found a REALLY cute pair of jeans… two sizes smaller than I am now. They are in fact the size that I want to be by the time my birthday rolls around in July. Normally, I would pass them up, frown and think how I wish they fit now, and head to the food court for a pretzel to drown my sorrows with, LOL just kidding. (well, kinda)
Anyways, this time I bought them. I bought them because I BELIEVE I am going to be wearing them on my birthday. I needed a visual representation of my goal, that I can LOOK AT every day. Between these jeans, Eating Clean, and Living Well Wednesday I just know I will reach my goal this time!!
Now, before you start telling me I shouldnt try to lose two sizes in 7 months, let me just say that I am really losing a size and a half, since I am kinda between sizes right now. Plus the WAY my clothes fit is more important to me honestly than what the scale says – so it is more a task of reshaping and toning more so than “losing.”
Today I discovered that I am not alone in buying or having “Goal Jeans,” when I read my friend Tanya’s Facebook status where she mentioned having “Goal Jeans to get into.” Curious, I Googled it, and found hundreds of thousands of blog posts, videos, and images of women talking about their Goal Jeans. Really, how cool is that?
So do you have Goal Jeans? And how many sizes smaller are they than what you wear now?
