Last week I tried on a pair of size 22 jeans at walmart and they fit! so I tried on the 22s I had at home that I never got into during my last diet attempt in 04-05 and theY fit too! WOOHOO. I cut out some tops to sew in size 22. I can buy the cheap easy-to -sew paterns now-they never came in my size before!
I've been stalled in the numbers game, though for about a month-going up and down within about a 5 pound range. I've been struggling with my sugar addiction, too. The other day I had a really bad day at school and vented to my teaching partner, Donovan, who listened in a way uncharacteristic for a male-just listened, didn't try to tell me what I should do. I cussed, I cried. He'll come into my room during prep times or before or after and vent to me, too. There's another guy friend there that does that occasionally, too. Personal stuff. But anyway, the next day, Donovan brought me a huge apple fritter and I ate it. Not good.
but I'm still upset about having leukemia and all that. I know I need another fill but I can't afford to take the time from work because I have oncologists appointments that I need to take off for. I guess I should call and get one scheduled for the first day of summer break and try hard to get back to the good eating patterns. I can live with not losing but not with gaining. I'm finally below 250 for the first time in probably 20 years. I AIN'T GOING BACK!
