|Bouncing from 405 to 243 to 288 and to 254 lbs|
Even without constantly checking on the weighing scales, I can tell I'm losing weight and inches because the new pants (trousers) that I had to buy before Christmas (because my old one no longer fitted) are now almost comically too big for me. The new belt I had to buy, which had 5 holes, is also being secured ... not in the fifth hole, or the fourth, or the third, but now comfortably in the second.
I'm once again able to wear clothing that I haven't worn in many months (in some cases, many years!) When I do go clothes shopping again someday, I'll be shopping in the "normal" fashionable stores, not in the "big and tall" fat people's stores.
Even my co-workers at my new workplace - where I've only been working for seven weeks - have noticed that I look slimmer.
I still have some objectives to work on and some intermediate goals to reach:
- reaching 243 lbs [where I was when I last left Missoula, 15 months ago],
- being under 100 kilograms (220.4 lbs),
- under 200 pounds,
- then my big goal - reaching 178 pounds)
