I'm happy.

Jean shopping is what I did today. Not a historic event for most people, but for me a momentous occasion. The last time I had bought myself a pair of jeans was about six months ago and they were when I was still not at my goal weight. And then when I no longer fitted those because they got big I started wearing my old pair which are about 5 years old. Needless to say when I fitted into those in December last year I was very happy because they were the pair I really liked and I thought I looked good in. Now, even those are too big. I have "saggy butt syndrome" in them and decided today was the day to revamp my denim wardrobe.

I knew exactly what I wanted "Levi 501's". Did I get those "NO". I came out with a pair similar but better. They sat where they are supposed to sit. Just below my navel, cant stand the "Harry high pants", are straight leg, sit nicely around my toosh and are a nice normal denim colour - not faded or too dark. All round I think my choice was awesome. What made it even better was that when I walked into Just Jeans I was expecting to walk out in a size 12, but this was not the case. I am in a Size 10. I can't believe it. I haven't been a size 10 since my early 20's. I wanted to do a jig I was that happy, but thought I had better refrain from making a fool of myself, so I "moonwalked" in my head.

I am now 65kg's in a 179cm frame. Time to stop losing weight and start maintaining it. I think I may have to start upping my caloric intake as my exercise regime increases. I don't want to lose anymore weight and run the risk of getting ill and fatigued. If I can't figure out a way to maintain my dietary intake I may just seek the guidance of a dietician whose main focus is on sports people.

Anyway, today was a great day.
