As usual!

It has been a very long time since I posted... How ironic is it that the only time I get around to posting a blog is when I get ridiculously busy again? I guess that goes to show, I do better under pressure.

Anyway, I'm still struggling with health problems. I'm just now recovering from a nasty cold, among other things.


My weight loss has been doing really well. I'm now down to 180-181 lbs. I had to buy some new pants last week. I was glad my boyfriend went with me, because I would have picked out sizes that are too big. He told me to try a few pairs on which I was really skeptical about whether they would fit or not. I believe the equivalent size in america would be size 14. Anyway, he convinced me to take them to the fitting rooms and try them on. Surprise! They fit rather well actually. I honestly do not remember the last time I have worn a size 14. Seriously. I can't remember! Maybe when I was 10?

It's also been a while since I have had a nice pair of jeans that aren't loose on me. Such a nice feeling to have (normally) tight pants that look honestly good.

I've heard it's common for one to become very critical of one's self after having lost a lot of weight. I am having that problem...

All my loose skin is driving me crazy! I feel like it's something strange on my body that truly doesn't belong there. It just doesn't feel right! Problem is... Where's it gonna go? I can only hope it will tighten a bit more with time as my body gets used to being so much smaller. (I really have my fingers crossed!)

I had started a one-month challenge from a facebook page that I follow, but around 7 days in I lost track and motivation, since I became so sick. Since I messed it up so badly I want to try and just do my own exercises for now and jump on the next challenge from the page at the start of the next month.

My German classes started up last week. There was a ton of confusion and working out to get through, but this week I'm finally in the right class (though I have 2 weeks of homework to make-up!) I have classes Monday thru Friday, 5 hours a day (god help me!) I worked on a lot of the make-up homework over the weekend.

Anyway, I guess I should get back to my homework/review....

Until next time, though I'm not sure when I can post again!

    Great job on the weight loss. Keep up the great work! It is definitely a nice feeling to get some new clothes that fit!

    I have a lot of skin too which I hate. I also hope it shrinks, but we will see. Time will tell - but keep pushing! emoticon

    Congratulations on the great work you have done. Good news to hear you needed to shop for clothes because of your drop in weight!

    This happened to me too--but there was some shrinkage with exercise (at least for me) and the rest I just got used to after some time. I always reminded myself that I would rather have loose skin than the extra weight. It can be a really big adjustment to be a different size and such, but you really will adjust. Just give it some time. You are doing so great!! Just keep reminding yourself how good you are doing and be happy and proud of yourself. All of us here are so proud of you right now!! You are doing amazing things!! Congratulations!!!

    Congrats on losing weight. I have the same problem with the loose skin. I did all of this work to lose weight but when I look in the mirror all I see is hanging skin.

    I know the skin thing -- it drove me nuts and still does. I have some old blogs about my skin removal if you're interested.
