After five weeks of working with a medical wight loss clinic and having successive losses (btwn 1 and 5 lbs a week), I started feeling like my pants were getting just a little looser. I decided to investigate by going to JCPenney's and trying on a pair of Levi 501's (my favorite jeans) in a size 42w32l AND THEY FIT!
5 weeks ago I was a 44 waist. My nutritionist said that the drop wasn't probably due solely to the lowered calorie diet I have been maintaining, but also the increased physical activity (I've been walking between 2 and 4 miles a day).
I am so excited. It feels so good not to have to go to the Big and Tall men's shop. And, while I am by no means a fashionista, I think next paycheck, I just might go back to Penney's and buy those jeans as a treat to myself!
