The Belt....

So... I can still totally wear the pants I've been wearing forever but they are starting to fall down. My hubby made a comment about it the other day (love it!) and I told him I just needed to get a belt. I used to have a cute belt but I totally can't find it. I did find another belt in my drawer. I have no idea where it came from but, I've tried it on several times before and I couldn't even suck in enough to get it around my body. So yesterday I figured... what the heck, I'll try it! The "look" was not flattering at all but.. I could buckle it on the first set of holes.

I decided to take a pic because my dad has inspired me to track my weight loss through the holes of a belt. :o) He had heart surgery in April of last year and has since lost 40-50 lbs. Lately he's been bragging alot about how the belt he is wearing didn't used to fit and now he has had to poke a couple extra holes. I figure that anyone who has documented hole progress DESERVES to brag a lot! So here's to movin' on up in how many holes I pass in order to hold my pants up! For now... I think I'll just be excited when I can be on the first one and not sport the mushroom top!

The belt is a good idea. I might have to try it myself sometime, provided I ever purchase a belt :o)

That is too funny. I like how you admit that the picture is not flattering but is only to show you got the belt on. :)

Fun! Like my post said yesterday "the belt doesn't lie". I love that you are going to do that and I love that you are taking a lot of pictures! Honestly, I would have been so sad if I didn't document my progress last year with pictures!

What a good idea... it will be neat to see how many holes you have plowed through when this thing is over! I am guessing at least 7 more :) Really I have no idea how to calculate a good guess though.

I forgot to mention I will NOT be wearing this belt until it fits correctly... I'm sure some of you were really worrying about my fashion sense! ;o)
