Operation Fit Back Into Favorite Jeans: T- 30 Days the main message seems to be that I finally have a decent doctor again! I have to agree, I like this one much better than doctor #2.

As for the rest of it, I have mixed feelings. It's good to know that, yes, I can be considered healthy even if my weight falls outside of the healthy range. Everyone is different and the important thing is to live a healthy lifestyle. I feel somewhat vindicated.

On the flip side, I'm still not happy with where I am. The idea that I can't lose weight makes me want to cry.

Even worse is the fact that I definitely have gained some weight. My favorite jeans have been feeling uncomfortable lately and I don't like it. I may have to accept that my skinny days are behind me, but I'm damned if I'm going to let myself get more chubby than I already am.

So, my sister and I are embarking on Operation Fit Back Into Our Favorite Jeans. I set the deadline for April 29, which is 30 days from now and happens to be my birthday. Convenient,no?

I am less concerned with the scale at this point, I just want my jeans to be comfortable again. After that, well...I guess I evaluate and figure out where I want to go from there.

I hear ya. I tweaked when my doc first told me to stop losing. According to the BMI I'm still overweight. Every chart says that for my height I should be in the 120's. So at 147, definately not skinny. But not fat either, and that is what I'm coming to accept. It's a process.

Oh I hear ya! Fitting comfortably into the favourite jeans is a great goal.
And I'm sure your sister will be a great motivational partner!
Good luck.
