So recently I've had several people say that I'm really looking good and they have noticed the weight loss. I don't see it but some of my clothes are starting to show it.
I was wearing a pair of jeans the other day at work and was wondering why they felt so weird. Then I realized it was because the crouch was hanging down to my knees! Then I put on another pair of jeans today and they are baggy. So I guess it's time to go shopping for a few items.
While at Walmart today I realized that Monday is St. Patty's day and I don't have anything green to wear. So I thought I would look for a green shirt. Well I found a navy blue shirt with green on it. The largest size they had was an XL. I thought, well what harm is it to try it on? So I tried it on and guess what... IT FIT!!!! I was so excited. I have finally gotten back into an XL. I know this may not seem like much but I have been in a 3X for so long that I'm just happy with an XL shirt right now. Now, it could also be the cut of the shirt that made it fit well but I'm still going with it.
Another exciting thing is that I have finally gotten below 230! I weighted Wed at work and was 216.4 and weighted today at home and was 219.5lbs. So I'm under 220lb which also makes me happy.
I would love to be 210lb by the end of the month. But we will see.
So to anyone that is reading this and you feel like you aren't seeing the weight loss, remember that it's the little things that matter. When you haven't worn a XL shirt in years and can finally wear it... rejoice in it! I've learned that even the small accomplishments are big ones. I've accepted the fact that I did't put all this weight on in 3-6 months so it's not realistic that I would lose it all in 3-6 months. It's gonna take a year or more to lose what I want to lose, just like it took several years to put it all on.
