Weight Loss - 25 to go
25 pounds to go to get to my next goal!
It continues to astound me that I've actually lost the amount of weight I have so far and that I'm continuing to take some off little by little. The thing that gets me is that I haven't given up on it and gone back to my old eating habits. I've had a bad week here and there but I go right back into my routine after it's over and done to continue my journey. 1 Month ago I was at 249.8, so while I bitch and moan to myself that the weight really isn't coming off, it's the long term progress that shows I'm wrong and the reason I am keeping up with it.
About a week or so ago I went out shopping with my lady and ended up getting a new belt. A week later I finally started wearing it because she brow beat me into it.
Lady: "you are wearing that same piece of shit old belt?"
grrouch: "yeah, why?"
Lady: "What about the new one we just bought?"
grrouch: "I thought that was for special occasions only"
Lady: "You thought we bought a belt to wear once a year? Are you crazy?"
So, even though I thought we bought a size smaller than I should have (I did that for motivation) I put it on yesterday only to realize that it does, indeed, fit.
I'm going to chalk this up to fat-boy syndrome though, as I always want to order more food than I can eat (or, what I used to be able to eat) and I always want to buy stuff at my old sizes.
So, the fact that the belt fits is great and now I just have to start getting pants that fit as these old ones just fall right off me with no belt attached. All in due time I guess.
Today I don't have a whole lot planned. Getting a hair cut and possibly buying one pair of pants.
Reading and playing some video games. Maybe make it through a couple more episodes of Dexter since I have been slacking there.
Hope everyone else is on the path to achieving at least one of their new years resolutions.
