It's The Small Successes that mean the most, sometimes.
I have 2 pairs of pants that I absolutely adore. I haven't wore either of them for well over a year, because when I put them on last, they were so tight that I had horrendous muffin top syndrome AND a fugly camel toe, to boot.
This evening, while trying to figure out what to wear out for a date night, I decided to try on the muffin top/camel toe causing pants....and they fit! No muffin top. No camel toe.
Suddenly, my crabby, bloated, pms-y crankiness disappeared.
And this small success was brought about by a very small change: walking. Just walking to and from the subway to commute to work (about a mile round trip) and walking to the grocery store every evening.
Sure it took a long time, but that doesn't really matter anymore. Not when I can finally wear two of my most favorite slacks I have ever purchased.
