    I made a discovery! I, out of curiosity, tried on a pair of size 20 jeans today. 2 sizes smaller than Im wearing now. they fit! A little snug, but definitely fit. I ran to the bathroom to examine the pair of size 22's Ive been wracking my brain as to why I cannot fit in to.... Turns out, they are an "average" pair. The 20's, and what I always have to wear are a "tall" pair. Could this be the only reason those 22's dont fit? Or are the 20's sized completely out of wack?

    I think brand, material( stretch), and cut can alter how a size fits. I generally consider myself a size when I can go into any store and fit that size across the board. I have an 18 in Targets merona brand that fits , but I have another 18 in their mossimo that while it buttons gives me a terrible muffin top. Same store different fits! Could be though that I think merona is their women's brand and mossimo is their juniors brand, hence more of a low rise jean. Go to a couple of stores to try on stuff!

    Yeah. I also tried on a pair of my mother's dress slacks in 22s and they fit nicely. This is a cue that I really shouldnt be bothered by size because it all varies sooooo much. I can't tell ya how good it felt to slide into those 20's after years of being a 24 or 26. Im embarassed to admit I ever wore a size 26, but that was what fit last spring. Over the summer I slimmed to an easy 24, but by this January I needed butter to fit into my 24's. So, really I was probably back to 26... So technically I guess I have lost a size. Musta just blocked out those 26 days. Yuck

    40 hrs done and gone. 6'2 185 to 183. Hopefully I can hold onto 1 lb of loss. I had a heavy lift and sprint session in the middle of it and not problems. I found myself thinking about food a lot, not necessary craving it, just thinking about it.

    I want to get the "starting strength" videos. I am not a weak woman, by any means, but boy would I like to be stronger. There are so many things I wish I could do by myself around here. I just need a little more strength. I promised myself when I get down to 200 lbs I would hire my neighbor girl as my personal trainer. She went to school for all that cool stuff and I trust her. But, I would like to start at home with some basics and see how I can help myself.

    I had DD yesterday and did take my class in gym. I think the key is eat carbs(potato for me) day before. Our class not easy, it's like boot camp. I thought I will be extremely hungry because usually I didn't eat in the morning and have 500 cal brunch after gym. But yesterday I just eat one boiled egg and tea. Later at night walk 4 miles.
    I think I have more energy on my DD, and feel very sluggish , sleepy and fat on UD.

    I've noticed that I have more energy on my down days as well. It's kind of weird, lol.
