This is awesome! I would have lost more if I would have not gotten familiar with some Easter candy. BLEH.....still no coke though :-)
I also have a HUGE NSV. On Thursday of this week I fit in my first pair of goal jeans...a 22 - non stretch dress pants. When I started this 7 weeks ago I was in a pair of 28 non stretchy pants. WOW. That is amazing to me. Today I bought me a pair of khaki capris in that size and I plan on buying my next goal pants and a smaller shirt at the end of this month...A size 18!
So while I am not there yet let me say something about this.
One - I am less than 2 pounds from the 280s. I have not been there in almost 10 years. We are quickly approaching a goal that I honestly thought was laughable to get to 2 months ago -- my high school weight of around 278. At that point I wore a 16-18.
An 18 shirt and pants...its been around 8 years since I wore clothes that did not start with a 2. I am having weeks where I loose little to nothing but it only lasts a week here and there but let me state that I am THRILLED at my weight loss. I am averaging 3.6 pounds a week!
I have a one month check up on Monday and I am hoping that he will release me not to come back until I need a fill....need to save those remaining 8 visits that I have already paid for. I dont think I need one now. I each very little and I am still having issues keeping things down if I do not chew like 100 times. Getting any tighter would be miserable in my opinion. It would be great if I stay like this without fills. I think it contributes to me not drinking carbonation -- but that is just my opinion on the way I feel about my body. My doc is STRONGLY against soda as well..he made me repeat that I would quit them like 5 times when I scheduled my surgery.
Anyway...need to do a few more paper gradings before I go to bed. -- Storms will be here early in the morning.
