Week 9 of the weight loss journey!
I have gone from 180.4 last week to *drumroll please* 179.2 this week!
To recap for new people, I started at 194 pounds and today I am 179.2! It took me 2 months and a week to get below 180. I had thought it would go faster, or rather I had hoped. But this week was so easy! I did allow myself a BIG CHEAT yesterday! I had a handful of chips and a snickers bar. YUM-O! I can't even tell you how good it tasted! It was better than I remember. But before cutting out the treats they were not tasting that good anyway. *laugh* Food is so good now! Although I am tired of broccoli. It makes me want to vomit now. Hee hee.
The measurements that were effected this week was my:
Thighs: started at 26 inches and now today 23.5
Waist: started at 41.5 and now today 34
If I take the tape measure and circle each part at the starting inches the tape measure just sags and is SO loose I have to hold it up.
I weigh around 182ish with clothes and shoes and food in my belly now. I can pull my pants off without undoing them!
About 3 weeks ago I tried on a size 16 and they looked good! Not snug at all but still loose so they look good, but fit. I started at a tight size 18. I can now put clothes on from my closet that I haven't worn in A LONG TIME!
On Matt's next day off we will go to Target and I will try on the 16 and a size smaller to see how they fit. I may even buy something for myself as a treat! :) Not to mention that one pair of my pants doesn't even fit anymore. They fall off and I do not wear belts. Well, I haven't worn a belt since I have been heavier, the belts cut into me too much. Maybe now it would be different? I only have a small pooch to get rid of at the bottom of my tummy now. When I stand in just undies sideways my tummy looks GREAT! Mattmos (the hubby) is LOVING IT! *giggle*
The lady that has helped me on this journey is married to a student Chiropracter. He says that for every pound overweight you are that is 5 more pounds of pressure on your body! That is big folks!
I have lost 14.8 pounds! That is about 75 pounds of pressure off of my body! I have been moving easier.
And the BIG highlight of the day! My thighs are starting to NOT RUB together so much! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
