We're redecorating the bedroom so I've been cleaning the closet and decided to torture myself by trying on some clothes that I tried on 2 months ago and was at least 2-3" from fitting. Now I've lost 2" in 2 months but NOWHERE near my gut or butt...it's more like 1/4" here, 1/4" there. I tried on what I would consider my short term goal shorts in a size 26 that I wore in 2001...I was actually able to fit!!! I decided to press my luck and try on the pair of 26 jeans that my mom got me one Christmas that were already a size too small and I never got to wear. They fit too!! Now don't get me wrong, sitting down in these shorts or jeans would send the button flying off faster than a bullet and someone would likely die if they were in front of me but I don't care about that. (I mean I care if people die but you know what I mean) The point is after not having lost any significant inches in the gut area and being down 9 lbs since I tried them on last, somehow 2-3" has disappeared from the right spots that were not my measuring points. Oh yeah and I tried on the 2 pairs of old school 30's that I was barely able to button 2 months ago (kind of like how the 26's are now) and they were really baggy and will need to be donated. This weight loss thing is a real kick. You can feel stuck and in a plateau-ish place yet somehow progress is still being made even if all of the regular tools like the scale and measuring tape are giving you the raspberry. I have stopped trying to figure out how all of this works but as long as results, whether scale or not, continue to roll in when my self confidence is beginning to dip, then I'm okay with that. Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll post weigh in tomorrow.
