I weighed in at 156.8 lbs this morning – woohoo! Since my first goal was to be 156 lbs and keep it off for at least a week, now we start counting the days until I can get my first reward. Yay, I love presents so much!
Just to let you guys know, I’m going to cheat just a little bit and order my reward now, since it’s going to take a little longer to get here (it’s being shipped from overseas). If I’m any bigger than 156 when they get here, though, I’ll just put them away until I’m back at goal.
I’m buying myself a pair of Zaggora Capri Pants. They’re a weight loss tool, basically, and even though I know it’s weird to put any hope in a pair of pants, I’ve been obsessed since finding out about them a year ago. They’re pretty new, from Great Britain, and are supposed to help you get hotter and burn extra calories while working out. There are cheaper versions on the market, but these are supposed to be really comfy and look good, too. Here’s what the company says about their product:
“In 30 minutes of exercise, weight loss is around 4x greater in HotPants than in a standard garment. On average, subjects lost 1.13% of body mass in HotPants compared to 0.27% in the control garment.”
It’s not so much believing they’ll work as just wanting to know for myself whether they do or not. The company has such an incredible hype going, with these two week “challenges” for people who own the pants (and lots of great before and after pics). As a marketer, I know a good (or at least working) campaign when I see one, so I can’t trust their website as much as I’d love to. I’m going to do their challenge, along with everything else I’m doing. I’ll probably go running in the pants, and otherwise wear them around the house, maybe to sleep in, and we’ll see what happens.
OK, I’ve got 8 minutes to get to work – gotta scram. TTYL!
