So I had to buy some new slacks for work today. I have not bought new slacks since 2006. And then I weighed in at 350 and was worried when I lost weight they wouldn't fit and I was wasting money. Man was that a ill placed thought.
Today I weigh (Drum roll please) 407. The pants I had to buy were 58/32 and 60/30.
Yep I am short and fat. So while it was nice I could find pants that fit at the outlet mall. (Priced reasonably) it is sad that I am so big and have let myself go.
Life has thrown me a few wild pitches over the last 18 months. A curveball here, a spitter there, a knuckleball out of no where. I have been brushed back from the plate and fallen down in the dirt. Well it is time to quit pretending to play and get in the game.
So for my friends or sparkpeople that might read this blog. Please no advice. I need cheerleaders and if I want help I will ask for help in my blog. I have done a lot of soul searching over the last 18 months and I am finding the harmony I am looking for. Now I just need a chearleader here and a friend there to smile at me when I make a mistake or when I don't do as well as I should.
Tomorrow I look for the measuring tape and get my inches. Then I start tracking everything for real. I start managing my calorie intake not just tracking it. That is going to possible be the hard one.
Thanks for any support you offer. I need it as bad as anyone.
