Newlyn; Glad to see you back in the 250s. Hope this is a better week all around for you.

Beeps: Maybe you could put periodic reminders in your phone like appointments to help give you a little kick throughout the day.

scarletrunner and Thinsole: Welcome. It's always the right time to join in.

ange: Ooh, the Sydney Opera House. You know that's on a lot of bucket lists, right? Enjoy that for the rest of us, too.

Week Two
08: 190.2
09: 189.6
10: 190.2
11: 189.0

Ok, I feel like that is a legit 180s number and that I might stay here now. Busy time is over for the month, so I can get back to healthier eating and more walking now. Oh, and I made my goal for the month already, but that's sort of a cheat, because it was really March's goal I just had a do-over on. So gardenerjoy, can I change my goal for the month to 187.0? That would put me at my next big mini-goal of 30% down.

I have to postpone breakfast this morning and go and get fasting blood drawn for my doctor's appointment next week.They don't open until 8, so this morning, I had some time to kill and decided to try some clothes on again. I fit fairly well now into my size 10 jeans and my 1990s Gitano size 16 shorts, so that is nice (down from a too tight 18W). I tried on one of my Large T-shirts and while I could get it on, it was too tight to actually wear yet. So I'm still an XL (down from an XXL) on shirts. Tried on my goal dress, which is a 12 and my swimsuit, which is a 10 and they were both too small on the bust still, by a few inches. /sigh. But I'll get there eventually.

I'm not usually a big late night snacker, but last night, I couldn't stop grazing. Happy to see a 189 number still after that.

Yes, yes, yes, this is all going the right direction. I can feel those 150's. Even my spring jacket fits better across my mid section GAH!
Have a great Friday, everyone!

Still a little bloated. Took my mid month measurements today, though and I'm down on almost all of them. Only 0.25" on most of them, but it is progress that adds up.

So I had sort of a funny NSV yesterday.

My husband is 6'4" and very thin. In fact, he is thin enough it is hard to buy clothes for him, as he typically wears a 34-36 and that can be hard to find. Over the last few years, he had put on some belly and was up to a 38-36, and had some shorts he usually wore to mow the lawn that were that size. Well, since last year, he's been walking with me, and took off all the belly, putting him back at a 34 waist. He went to mow the lawn yesterday and his old shorts were WAY too big, like no way a belt would hold them up. I jokingly said "try mine, maybe they'll fit", while in my head thinking they were probably even bigger than the ones he just put on, and I'd have a good laugh at him. Well, they fit! They were just a touch too big, but close enough he didn't have to wear a belt, and they're just a touch small on me still, so I'm not quite to the point where we have the same size waist, but not very far off. That was unexpected.
