Well, I have lost 18 pounds since April 21st, which is really good. This means I am five or so pounds away from fitting into some clothes that I started to put together around this time last year. Unfortunately after starting that exercise I started working on an emotionally draining project and grained 20 pounds and I was back to having practically nothing fit. I've been dressing myself in one of two pairs of elasticised waist linen pants for my Monday work appearances and that's about it.
This was bad as I was also trying to interview for jobs etc. But now I can fit into those clothes again, although not comfortably. I am almost there! Very happy I didn't sit on the couch on the weekend drinking wine and watching DVDs, although I would have enjoyed it at the time. Once I can fit comfortably into a size 18, my wardrobe crisis will be over. Then it will just be development, not a panic to get dressed in the morning like it has been.
Right now the 18s give me muffin top. Not such a good look, but before I couldn't get them zipped at all. One must be grateful for progress if nothing else.
Nearly to my first milestone, nearly.
