No, seriously. It’s getting totally crazy trying to find something that fits…because nothing does! It’s about the best “worst problem” we’ve had to deal with in a very long time. So, who’s complaining, right? Well, we aren’t complaining! But, we really do need to go shopping. ASAP.
Starting Weight: 249.4 lbs
Highest Load Weight: 254.0 lbs
Yesterday’s Weight: 224.0 lbs
Today’s Weight: 223.8 – down -0.2
Total Lost to date: -25.6 lbs from Start Weight / -30.2 lbs on VLCD
This has been my worst week-end, weight loss wise, since we started the protocol.
I am not sure why. I have been totally POP, and I made a conscious effort to drink more (though I am sure I didn’t drink enough – particularly on Sunday).
The weekend wasn’t totally negative – I had my first comment on my weight loss -someone finally noticed! I started cleaning out my closet and was amazed what will fit now and how many clothes I was wearing just 1-2 months ago that no longer fit.
I do have several items of clothing that I have never been able to fit into… and I am getting close to fitting them.
ONLY 45 MORE DAYS UNTIL KICKOFF! GO UTES!
Starting Weight: 187.2 lbs
Highest Load Weight: 192.8 lbs
Yesterday’s Weight: 173.7 lbs
Today’s Weight: 172.0 – down -1.7
Totals: -15.2 lbs from Start Weight / -20.8 lbs on VLCD
Yesterday we revealed our 4 week progress photos and our cool 4 week stats! However, we did not post that particular day’s stats (partly because we didn’t have time, and mainly because I didn’t want to put a damper on things).
Yesterday morning I actually had a 1.2 lb GAIN! Ugh!! (yes, the pizza cheese debacle came back to bite me. . . a hard lesson to learn that cheats, no matter how small, aren’t worth it).
So, my Sunday was spent as an “Apple Day” (i.e. “correction day”), combined with a “detox bath”.
Voila! Today I’m right back on track again with a 1.7 lb. loss. WOOT WOOT!
Like UtahMan, I am suffering from “Weight Loss Closet Syndrome”. Everything in my closet except about 3 things is either a size 14/16, LARGE or X-LARGE. But, I am officially now a size 10/12 MEDIUM. This is a BIG problem. I can technically “wear” a lot of the LARGE stuff, but it is so baggy and droopy on me it’s pitiful. Today I pulled out a smaller skirt wedged in the back of the closet that never used to fit me – now it’s loose. But, it was passable. The shirt was ridiculously too large and so I tried wrapping a belt around it – I thought it could be “fashionable”. My daughters informed me it was a “fail”. sigh. OK. I’m going to try to make a trip to the thrift store as soon as I can to find some smaller sized things. This is a crazy busy week with work and music rehearsals so I don’t have time to shop. I also don’t want to invest in anything too pricey, since I plan on losing a lot more.
I also think that UtahMan and I definitely need to haul off all of these clothes that no longer fit me (I certainly don’t want to be tempted to “grow back into them”!)
