Weigh-In Wednesday: Week 39

IMG_0927I’m settling into a full week of maintenance mode now that I’ve achieved my weight loss goal. No additional pounds shed this week, but I did experience some good news.

I pulled out a pair of bike shorts purchased in the early 90’s. Before the busy years of softball and soccer and cross country, we frequently biked with the girls on the weekends and during vacations, and I remember receiving this pair of bike shorts as a birthday gift.

Despite the fact I hadn’t worn these shorts for at least 15 years, and probably haven’t been able to squeeze in them for nearly as many years, I’ve kept them in the bottom of the drawer. I’m not sure why…maybe because I knew they were expensive and didn’t want to donate to Goodwill.

On a lark, I decided to try them on Saturday and to my surprise they fit. What a great feeling to be able to comfortably wear clothing I’d long since written off knowing I’d never turn the scale back far enough to wear them again!
