Be an AHB Rockstar: Michele Week 4.

Michele continues on in week 4 with a non-scale victory! 

It’s been four weeks today since I started “working” with Alicia and Kara at A Healthy Balance. It is so great listening to their advice, expertise, and support. Alicia keeps me on track with my exercise and Kara keeps me on track with nutrition. I definitely have the motivation to do this, but knowing I have them behind me, I know I won’t slip.

I hit a milestone this week and while I knew I’d do it at some point, I didn’t realize how great it would feel! My friend, Sue saw me in my favorite Talbots jeans and said, ” I can definitely tell today that you are losing weight and you CANNOT wear those jeans another day! You need a smaller size.” Off to the store we went and she was right! I did need a smaller size. I could not believe my eyes in the dressing room when I buttoned and zippered and saw that they were a perfect fit! I couldn’t open the door fast enough to model for Sue.


New jeans on top of old jeans!

While this size is certainly not my goal size, it’s exciting for now. I am keeping my old jeans as a reminder that I do not ever want to wear them again. They are folded in my gym bag and whenever I need an extra dose of motivation and encouragement, I will try them on. Bootcamp is hard, but the thought of wearing those jeans again is not an option. I will gladly (ok fine, maybe not gladly!) struggle through planks, lunges, pushups, and whatever else Alicia throws my way because I know the end result will be worth it. If I felt this good trying on these jeans, imagine how I’ll feel when I try on my goal jeans?


Be Healthy. Be Balanced.

  1. I love the idea of leaving your old jeans in your workout bag… I have a pair of shorts I may just have to throw in my trusty purple backpack 🙂 … Keep up the good work!

    The idea actually came from my daughter’s friend! I was trying on my new “skinny” jeans to show them and I actually was able to put on my old jeans (that I had worn to work that day!) OVER my new jeans. I tossed them in the barrel and she told me I should save them for motivation. I am doing just that! I tried them on this weekend and oh wow! they’re HUGE! 🙂 Thanks for your support Kathleen! You’re awesome.
