Day one... hoping by the end of this month this shirt will fit better.

Monday, February 04, 2013

These pictures were taken today, 2.4.2012. I'm at a weight of 247 lbs. This shirt that I'm wearing is a bit too tight on my body right now. It's supposed to be bit tight, however, with the way my stomach is, it doesnt like to stay down. I have to keep pulling it down every time I move. I really like this shirt and even have a black one just like it. I really want to start wearing it and even start working out in it, however, I don't want the hassle of pulling it down. I'm going to take a picture of me wearing it every day for the rest of the month, that way I can see if my body is starting to change for the better. When I first got them I thought that they fit great when I tried them on at the store, but I things always seem to shrink when I get them home (BEFORE WASHING THEM!!) I can't wait to see changes. Even though my scale is saying I weight 247, I still think I look just how I did when I was 280... and my clothes havent gotten smaller. I'm a bit curious as to what the scale at a doctors office would tell me.

    I think it's ironic that you mention you feel as though your body looks the same at 280 as you do now at 247. I have that same problem. Even with losing 50 lbs, I know there is a huge difference. I can tell in a few spots but overall, I never felt that big, and now I don't feel "small" It wasn't until I had to use a few pairs of jeans that I had from when I was 190 lbs. They are about 5 sizes too big. And I was thinking to myself, I don't ever remember being aware I was that big.

    I do think the idea of taking pictures is great!! But I will say this the changes will be soo minute that taking a picture everyday be excessive. You might consider taking one 1x per week instead. Also don't get discouraged because I believe the saying goes, it takes 2 weeks to feel a difference and 3 weeks to be able to see a difference.

    Good Luck! I'll be cheering for you.

    I love the idea of taking a picture every day for a month! I've lost inches before but not weight and I got really discouraged. I think I'll steal your idea and maybe I won't give up this time! emoticon
