Celebrating being overweight!

All sorts of craziness is happening. Yesterday I got my latest cholesterol test results. I always forget how to read those charts. I’m not going to publish any specifics here, but just about everything appears normal to my eye. I’ll go over it with my doctor in a couple of weeks.

In other news, this morning I realized that my BMI is now 29.9. I have officially moved from Obese to Overweight, and that’s nothing to sneeze at. Next stop, Healthy.

Also, this morning I was feeling the “Bowie tee and a sportcoat” vibe. See, my David Bowie tee-shirt has been in the “I can wear it, but I’d be more comfortable wearing something over it” category. So I’d wear it, but only under a sportcoat or flannel. Today I put it on and thought, “You know… I’d actually feel okay walking out of the house as-is.” Then I grabbed my sportcoat because that was The Plan, and felt like a kid playing with his dad’s clothes.

Then I remembered that I had purchased a new (to me) sportcoat at Savers several weeks ago for like $6. It was juuuuuust a bit too small at the time, but I liked it so much I had to get it. Would it fit now?

YUP! In fact, I think my exact words were, “I look fucking good!” So the old coat went into the donate bin, I’m wearing the “new” one, and enjoying it very much. I’ve also received a bunch of comments from people who see me every day about how good I’m looking today. And I did wear the other coat just Tuesday without much comment.

It’s amazing what properly fitting clothing can do for you.
