Ok so the only bad thing about weight loss is, I’m poor and now none of my clothes fit hahaha!
I went shopping in my closet a few months ago and dug out some pants that had been too small but fit. Some were still two small so I set them aside. I just went through my closet again and those pants I was saving that were too small are now too big! A few of them fit but are baggy. My belt is too big. I have about seven bottoms I can get away with wearing for awhile longer, and a ton of tank tops. My sweaters are big but I can get away with it I think for the first part of winter.
As for what I’m gonna do when all those pants are too big, I have no idea. I need a whole new wardrobe! I’ll definitely need a new belt to make the bottoms I have last a little while longer.
While this is exciting, it’s also a little scary lol. Guess I’ll start a clothes savings fund and work on getting to a thrift store. I weighed in today and I’m holding steady at 157 pounds. It’s a grand total loss of 22 pounds. I wish there was a way of knowing the muscle gain to fat loss ratio. Oh well hehe. The last capris I got were size 12 and they are a little loose now so I’m thinking I’m now around a size 10. At my heaviest back in my drinking, I weighed about 230 and wore a size 22.
Only seven pounds to my target weight. Since I have a lot of muscle, it’s just not feasible to go below 150 and still be healthy with my height and frame.
I’ve got two problem areas left. Abs and triceps. The old beer belly is just being a brat about going away. I’ve got this pooch right above my belly button. And trust me, it’s not a cute pot belly. It’s like this lump of fat right above my belly button. The abs right below my belly button are firm yet still rounded. My triceps are still like wings when I wave, but they’re getting tighter and damn are my biceps sweeeeeet! Hahaha! Look at those guns!
I’ve got a tattoo on my right arm and I’d love a cover up job on it. It’s a tribal star and I’d love to get something girly over it, but I doubt I’ll ever afford it. Who knows, right?
I love it!!! Next month marks a year for the start of working out and eating better, and also the start of the blog! Time flies, eh?
