I Blame Elastic Waist Pants.

Happy New Year, everyone!
So far, this year has been a year of change for me, and I hope the trend continues. Not a change in many things, just a change in my mindset and habits. Of course, isn't that true for the start of every year??
Well, I start a fitness challenge today that will last six weeks. I am really hoping this is something I can stick with. I saw something on Pinterest the other day that said, "Be stronger than your strongest excuse." I liked that. Challenge accepted.
I also have been trying to put my finger on these last four months, why while I've been at home and not working, I still have only been gaining weight and not losing weight. Marie Osmond was on TV for NutriSystem and she said it best. "You wear stretchy pants because it makes you feel more comfortable and you don't realize how out of control you've gotten." Ding ding ding - guilty as charged. I have worn elastic waist pants basically since August 31, very rarely putting on one pair of jeans. When I do, they are tight and awful and I can't wait until I can get the other ones back on. Well, I think I've hit a breakthrough. I am really going to try on this one to stick with it for the short amount of time that is six weeks. Because, it really is short.
Think of me!!
