My new thought process is to think like a size 8. I am currently about a 12 and my goal is a comfortable size 8. I have been every thing from a 0 – 14 over the past 20 years. That sounds crazy right? It felt crazy to just write it down. Out of all the sizes I think 8 is were I would like to be right now. My body has change and weight has shifted to different places. I feel as though an 8 would look perfect on me. In pounds that may be about 25 pounds away.
So I am thinking like a size 8. I have already been going through my closest to pack away many of my larger clothes. Why? Because I am a size 8, I don’t need those. I have also been going through the smaller clothes I have packed away so I can start wearing them. I am not delusional I know that I can not wear them yet….YET. However, I will soon. I know that. I am confident of that. I am excited.
A couple things that I have started recently are wearing ankle weights during the day and drinking water. Those are obvious things to most but obviously I have not been doing them. I found this great 64 oz chugger at 5 below and I love it. That is also where I got the ankle weights.
I fill my chugger with water and add sliced cucumber, lemon, lime and orange. I also add a peppermint tea bag for a few minutes to add a taste of mint.
Also when it comes to my food intake I am again thinking like a size 8. Once I become satisfied eating I simply stop. While we are eating why do we eat past the point of satisfaction. Just save some for the next meal.
What size are you thinking like?
One thought on “Thinking Like a Size 8”
I am proud of you for taking the steps to get back to the skin you are most comfortable in. I am a strong believer in speaking things in existence, but if you do nothing, then your results will be the same, NOTHING!
I too struggle with finding my comfortable skin. I may be small/petite, but it doesn’t make me comfortable. Others tell me “you look fine” or “you just had a baby, it’s ok.” Actually it’s not. I don’t need any more excuses. What I need is time and energy. I realized it order for me to do the things I want to do, including find my comfortable skin, that I must persevere.
Thanks for this post. You inspire me.
