I've never liked doing math and I certainly haven't liked doing it during the last few months.
I was doing so well in my weight loss, taking off about 10 pounds a month. Then Thanksgiving and Christmas and January – oh my – happened and it was like I only lost about 5 pounds in each of those months.
Right now I'm at a total loss of about 42 pounds. Pretty awesome, but yeah, I wish it was more. Had I stayed on track better, I could probably be way closer to 50 or even beyond. Still, I'm excited.
right now I'm in a size 12, but about a week or so ago I bought a size 12 skirt from the thrift store that is now basically too big. I'm kind of confused by this, since my size 12 jeans still fit (but they are starting to get a little loose), but at the same time, I'm excited. Size 10 is on the horizon.
Speaking of clothes getting bigger, here's an embarrassing story.
So, I've basically had about three pairs of workout pants during all of this work-out/weight loss. They've all fit relatively well but now they're all just way too big. I can usually drawstring them well enough that they stay up, but the other night even the drawstrings failed me. I was walking and running and on my first lap running, my pants fell down several inches – an embarrassing amount of inches! Thank goodness I was the only one in the gym or I'd probably have died of embarrassment.
So, yeah, it's time to get new workout pants. I've already started on that. Thank goodness for thrift stores and clearance racks!
I'm starting to feel like I'm finally getting back on my weight loss track. I don't know if I'll lose another 10 pounds in a month, but I'm going to try. Even if I'm losing slowly, it's better than not losing at all.
