My weight loss buddy and I went jean shopping this evening. Both of our jeans were falling off of us and it was time. I have lost almost 65 all together and she is down almost 90.
We go in and grab what we think will fit and end up going one size down. She got a 5/6 and I got a 7/8 we have not seen single digits and YEARS. We are unbelievably excited. High fiving, dancing and taking picture. *yes we are nerds*
The sales woman comes over and asks us if we are ok. (hehe) We explained that we have lost a lot of weight and are excited about the sizes we bought.
She asked how much and we told her. She said wow. How did you do it..and leaned in like she was expecting some HUGE secret.
We told her. Eat healthy, count calories and exercise.
she said. That's it, really?? and acted as if it was just too good to be true.
We just gigled and went about our business.

People just don't want to believe that it is that easy. They are expecting a pill/ potion/ magic trick to get the weight off.
Turns out it is good old fashioned effort!

I started almoSt three years ago. She has been at it a little longer. But we have only really been working together for about a year.

The problem is people are weak minded and let food control too much of their lives!

Anyways congrats that's so awesome!
