Day 42: My Sexy Pink Pants

I think that I am retaining water right now, or I’ve gained muscle weight through my bellydancing class or walking.  This might explain how the scale says I have gained weight.  I have always heard that in order to lose water weight, you have to drink a lot of water.  I’m hoping this is the case and that the scale will soon go back in the other direction.  I keep reminding myself that it’s not how much you weigh, but how much you look like you weigh. 

As a new scale owner, I’m still unsure if I like having the daily option of weighing myself.  I used to judge weight loss/gain by how my clothes fit.  My work pants used to be very snug but are fitting better now.  My goal is to get back into my fun pink pants.  Unfortunately, I cannot even zip these up.  A year ago, I would wear these when going out with friends and these pants would slide down if I shook my hips.  Argh.  Even though I feel like a cow, I know that I will wear these again soon.  I also have refused to buy new clothes at my current size.  It annoys me that I only have maybe 3 pairs of work pants since this limits my outfit choices.  However, if I give in and buy more, this will only reinforce that it’s ok to be this lumpy.  Don’t even get me started about my skirts.  I will fit into my denim miniskirt this summer.  I will!
