So, I've been doing the whole upset I've gained weight, then eating to make myself feel better. Which it doesn't because I only gain more. See where this is going?
Yesterday I was switching over my summer clothes for my winter ones. We're finally getting cooler temperatures and I can finally wear long sleeves again. Yea!
While switching out my clothes, I found one of the first t-shirts I bought when I got to college. It's big. Really big. And it fit when I bought it.
Elizabethtown College located in Elizabethtown, PA
And as I was pulling clothes out to put into the closet, I came across a long-sleeve t-shirt for Penn State (where I earned my M.A.). When I bought it, it was a tad tight, but after my work in the gym in the spring it fits. Kinda surprised, but happily.
I attended Penn State Capital Campus rather than Penn State Main. Closer.
And then I thought this would be fun...
So, while I'm not happy about those 15 pounds that have come back I have still made progress overall. I have to remember that. I have to remember that the Elizabethtown College shirt could fit, rather than the Penn State one. And I've lost those 15 pounds once, I can do it again. It's only failure if I chose to give up. And I've been battling this weight thing for years and have not given up. It's taking me longer than I would like, but I'm still making progress. Those two shirts are proof.
