Halfway there

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Yesterday I weighed 169 lbs on the dot. I could probably have ticked it juuuuust below that, but it's not that big a deal to me. 169 lbs marks the halfway point of my goal weight loss.
Normally these sorts of milestones would send me into an eating frenzy, and yesterday was no different. I had a lovely meal of vegan burrito at Mazatlan in Susanville, topped with what tasted like enchilada sauce, and a plop of guacamole, and when I got home from grocery shopping ate two sandwiches. They were pretty plain, one with two Morningstar vegan sausage patties, and one with a boca burger, no fake cheese or anything.
I paid for that with awful nightmares all night, interspersed with periods of sleeplessness.
It's all good.
It's all good because this isn't every day anymore, just here and there. And if I can remember what happens now after I "pig out", well, all the better!
Earlier this week I bought a pair of size 16 jean capri pants. I haven't seen size 16 in I don't know how long, so it was quite a surprise that I fit into them. Not only that, but I tried on two pair, both size 16, and the larger one of the two was too big and this one fit just right. Huzzah!
I piled up all the "I Give Up" clothes (stealing from What Not To Wear), to take to the thrift store. Some of the tee shirts I kept for pajamas, as well as 3 pairs of knit shorts. They will NOT be part of my day wardrobe, that I promise. And when they get to just be ridiculously too large, then I will donate those as well and replace them with more fitted pjs.
