Fitness Friday and Old Navy

So I stepped on the scale this week and the miracle that happened a couple of weeks ago was not a dream, I repeat not a dream people.  I weighed in at 299.6 which means I can officially claim my spot in the 200 club.

However, while I am still celebrating I have really been struggling with consistency.  I have a whole lot of excuses but I will not bore you with them, they are typical excuses.

I really want to be in the 280s by Thanksgiving so I am joining SkinnyMeg's dietbet next week and going to get my butt to the gym 3 times a week to lift following the lifting workout she also shared HERE.  God bless her for helping out us struggling folk!

So now on to the Old Navy part.  Last weekend I stopped in to Old Navy to look for some winter clothes for Madelynn.  While I was there I was curious to see how far I have to go before I can start wearing their clothes again (used to be one of my favorite stores in HS).

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

I CAN FIT INTO XXL TOPS AT OLD NAVY!!!!!!!  The black shirt is a BUTTON down shirt for goodness sake!  There are button down shirts at Lane Bryant that I cannot get to fit right, so you bet your sweet fanny I bought that shirt (clearance $9)!   Oh and I am totally going to get that jacket, I am still trying to decide what color.

So there ya have it, this is my motivation for getting my butt in gear and really hammering it in before the holidays (and through the holidays).  I want Lane Bryant to be a distant memory by January 1.

What is currently motivating you?

  5. Awesome! Great job! It always feels good to go shopping for new clothes! :)

  6. Great job! I love that wine colored jacket. When I got mine at old navy, they were out of the wine, so I got grey.

  7. Great job on the weight loss and being able to fit into Old Navy stuff. I love Old Navy. Their stuff always fits so well. I was thinking about joining the Dietbet but I know I will just lose because I have such a hard time losing weight right now. I don't want to lose money like I did on the last dietbet.

    1. Amanda you CAN do it. If you go into it sure you are going to fail then you probably will. Chin up doll you can do anything that you put your mind to.
