I have lost 29 pounds since mid December. I am now weighing in at 300 pounds! Woohoo! I might just make my goal of 250 by October 21. It is definitely looking like it.
Even if I don't make the goal I know that I am okay and that weight does not make the woman. I am happy with myself however I look or weigh. I am doing this for my health, in hopes that some day I will be able to stop the blood pressure and cholesterol meds.
I know I have lost inches because my clothes fit differently. My pants are longer. Yeah, I know that sounds weird but it's because they don't need to cover my hips as much so they are longer. It is no longer a struggle to get into my pants.Even my tops are getting looser. I measured my breast today. I went from 60" around to 54" around, right at the breast, not above or below. I don't think I am measuring my waist or hips int he same place because the numbers are all over the place so I think I'll just stick with judging my how my clothes fit. I am slowly trying on clothes that I have packed in my closet trying to find ones that fit as my other ones are starting to get big on me. Of course my daughter-in-law has already taken a lot of those clothes since she's also a big woman, but I know there are some that are styles or designs that she thinks are weird.
I wish my daughter-in-law would follow me and change her diet as well. I can't push it. I know that, but I am hoping that by my example she might just want to do it herself. My son as changed some of his eating habits, eating more salads and less burgers. They own a business and eat a lot of fast food. They have a nuker there but only use it for tea or ramen. I work there 3 days a week for about 4 hours each day. If I feel I'm going to be hungry I pack some fruit or a salad.
OK, now that I am losing weight at the pace I am I have no idea what swimsuit size I should get. I need one for water aerobics this summer, not to mention other things I will need it for. The one I wore last summer was a little big on me because I bought it at least 6 yrs ago, before my breast reduction.
With all the decisions on clothing and other things going on, I feel super about my weight loss!
