Finally knocked down the next 10 pound mini-goal this morning. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s 20 pounds down since the end of March.
I’m now down to the same weight I was around this time in 2013, the last time I started losing weight and getting healthier. The big difference is this time I have a better idea of what I’m doing and how my body is most likely to react to the choices I make.
I also got to go “shopping” in the back of my closet this weekend. I was pleased to discover that some of my “fat clothes” which had become too tight are once again wearable. It’s still way too soon to be able to go “shopping” in my storage bins of super-smaller clothes, but it’s nice to be able to wear some of these shirts again. Maybe in another three months I’ll be able start swapping them out for some of the stuff in storage.
I’m on my last week of Chantix, and cannot wait to be done with it. I’m really looking forward to seeing if my sleep quality gets any better next week. Because three months is a long time to go without much (if any) real rest. A very long time.
