Huge break throughs in the last 12 hours. I was stuck at 208 for 10 days. For me that is an eternity. This morning I finally broke through to 207. But, that was secondary to the fact that I bought 3 pairs of size 36 pants last night on my way back from my last game. My weight loss buddy reported that he bought 36s yesterday and I am almost 20lbs ahead of him. So, I stopped at Kohls late last night to do something else and thought I would see how close I was to wearing 36s. I was blown away by the fact that 36 regulars fit me easily. This is on a guy who would have had to buy 46s just 6 months ago.
I was hoping to be at 205 by Christmas. I am leaving today to drive home for a quick Christmas visit. My parents know I am losing weight, but not the extent. Hence the big reveal. I feel I am going home after being on the Biggest Loser ranch for 6 months. I just started reading Lose it Fast, Lose it Forever by the season 2 at home loser. Pet Thomas lost 100 lbs after being voted off and won $100,000 for being the biggest total loser. I saw my brother on his way through town for his Christmas visit. When I picked him up at the airport his first comment was where is Steve. That was funny. If you look at my posted fattest picture you will see what he saw me at last year for Christmas.
I have to pack up half my kitchen to take to Kalamazoo. My chef son and I are cooking Christmas dinner for my family. I am using primarily Spark recipes. Most of which I test drove on myself for Thanksgiving. My son is going to help make them more Chef like.
