Tight Jeans

Everyone has them, one pair of jeans, slacks, pants, in the back of the closet that you "save" for the day when you can wear them again - well, at least, I know women do. Probably men too.........

So, just for the heck of it the other day, after being on the cough drop diet for nearly three months, I decided to see if my favorite pair of jeans fit again. I've lost 32 pounds, so here was hoping. Voila - they fit and I didn't even have to lay on the bed to zip them up...........YEE HA.

I love these jeans - they're worn, they're soft, they're old and they fit again. Amazing. I guess going to the gym five days a week, not eating dairy or anything else I shouldn't and walking nearly 4 miles a day has paid off. It's all good.

So, everything has a silver lining, doesn't it?

Jeez, 32 pounds? That´s incredible. Trick is not putting it back on, which most folks do. Hang in there.

Nope, I'm on a roll! My goal is to be in a bikini by the end of the summer at the latest! AND I'm a VERY goal oriented person.......or some would say "Stubborn", ha.

Wow, 32 lbs! When you and I and Steve get together in Guaymas we need to pick your brain. I like your strategy, other than the getting sick part.

What kind of cough drops?

How many cough drops a day are you allowed?

Can you have them with wine?

Do you just sort of keep them in a candy dish?

Babs you have to give more detail on this wonderful diet as I saw the jeans yesterday and they did look good on you. And, honey, that little cough you do goes with the jeans.

Richland - Hall's Eucalyptus - As many as you want or need - Of course with wine is preferable - Nope at my finger's tips AND thanks for the compliment, I think.

Yeah and the cough is the basis for the weight loss, for sure!

Barb, that is just incredible! I am so happy for you and so jealous, though I wouldn't want to go on the diet you did. But going to the gym 5 days a week is commitment and it is paying off. I am so proud of you! Will I recognize you?
