This morning was weigh in. I’m now down to 234.4 pounds, a 1.6 pound loss from last week. I’m surprised by these results, as I’ve added dairy back into my diet and have been eating quite a lot of cheese. But I’ll take it.
I’m getting to the point now where I’m going to have to buy new clothes. I’m trying to hold off as long as possible because I know I’ll have to do it again. I’ve been buying new to me jeans from Goodwill and one of my co-workers gave me some dress pants that don’t fit her anymore. Another of my co-workers said she has a bunch of stuff I can have when I get to a size 18. My biggest issue right now is pajamas. I’ve been wearing the ones with the drawstrings more because I can adjust those, but I really need to get some new ones.
I really appreciate how supportive everyone has been about all of this. Not literally everyone, I suppose. There are a couple of naysayers about me doing a “fad” diet, which isn’t actually what I’m doing. There are also a couple of people that have made some uncomfortable comments about my weight loss. However, for the most part, people have been supportive and helpful.
