Be-You-Tifully Fit: But do your pants still fit?

wpid-img_20150415_091019.jpgYou'd think that I'm down about 100 lbs from my heaviest so a couple pounds fluctuating would not bother me too much.  Well it does.  It always does.  You can't escape that tiny little irrational voice in the back of your head.  I know that the increase must be due to the addition of strength training so I will have to wait till it's time for my measurements & pictures again to see but's hard.  How do you tell yourself a couple pounds is okay...then you envision a couple more...and a couple more...that's the cycle I came from!  That scale number is devastating sometimes!  But again it's all in my head.  And my pants still fit.  Maybe that's the sticky I need to leave on the mirror...  "But do your pants still fit?"
