Still shrinking

I weighed myself yesterday morning. First time in a while.

I last weighed myself before I went down to Melbourne over Easter, and I was at 88kg (194lbs) at the time.

Since then I've had two weeks on holidays, and then just over a month back here. While I was on holidays I wasn't eating as well as I should have been, but that was mainly because I was on holidays. Once I got back I have been stressed and busy, so I haven't been sticking to my diet anywhere near as well as I would have liked (I eat when I stress).

As a result, I wasn't that confident that I'd kept the weight off, let alone lost any more. However, I did have to pull my belt in a notch on Friday, the belt that I had bought while I was in Melbourne, so that meant that I had at the very least lost size, even if not weight. This left me unsure of how I was going.

I weighed myself yesterday morning at 86kg (190lbs), down another 2kg.

So good news after all.

Once I got into work yesterday, I had to modify my watch band and tighten it up a bit. I don't quite have to pull out another link (which would be number three since I started the diet) but I may need to by the time I'm finished.

My goal is to loose at least 30kg (66lbs) in a year. This would mean I would have to average about 577 grams (1.27lbs) of weight loss each week. I am currently on week 37 of the year, and I should have lost about 19.5kg. I have lost 24kg, so I think I'm going to make it! :)

The one thing that's really annoying me is clothes. I don't have much clothes I feel good wearing any more. There's all the stuff that I bought while in Melbourne that fits me (and I look good in, thanks to much persuasion from arienmir and designadrug), plus some of the older stuff that I had stored in the back of the cupboard, but that's about it.

I have three pairs of pants that I would say fit me properly, two that I wear to work and a pair of Colorado jeans. All three pairs were bought in Melbourne. The pants I was wearing to work are never going to be worn by me again, I have lost far too much in the waist for them to fit.

I haven't got any casual shorts that fit. I have a couple of fancier pairs that were bought in Melbourne, but that's it. Luckily the only time I'll be wearing shorts for the next 4 or 5 months is around the house, so it's not as much of a problem. Around the house I can wear the daggier, too big, pairs without worrying (except when I get visitors).

Shirts and t-shirts I should be fine for a while, thanks to the Melbourne shopping trip. I have enough, I just have to sort out what fits and what doesn't.

Shoes are the current big issue. I have lost so much weight that most of my shoes don't fit me. My joggers are fine, but most of the rest of the shoes I have are ankle length or higher, and I have lost so much from my legs that they are almost unwearable.

Once I get sorted and financial again, some clothes shopping is high on the priority list. Fun!
