WEEK 3 | January 31, 2012 | Weight: 296.4 lbs | Loss of 2.8 lbs | Total Loss 14.2 lbs
Another fantastic loss! I'm actually pretty amazed that I even lost this amount because I gorged on Mary Brown's (a local fried chicken place) over the weekend and still haven't done any exercise at all. I had 2 large centers, fries, half a plate of taters and gravy! Yes it was a moment of weakness and I'm sure it won't be my last.
I was sitting in my chair this week, reading some other weight loss blogs and noticed a lot of people are taking their measurments and recognizing success by clothing size and other things. I think this is a good idea and I'm going to pick myself up a tape measure to do just that.
I recall in my late 20's a pair of size 36 pants that my wife simply adored and wanted me to buy and wear. I was quite excited because it's not often my wife tries to get me to dress up. I went back to the store and tried them on. They would not fit. It turns out that I was just barely wearing a size 38 at the time (my first clue that something was going on with my weight). The store didn't have anything larger than a size 36 - I was crushed and I knew my wife was as well. I bought the dang things anyway and told her that someday I would fit into them. Unfortunatly I only ever increased in size. I wonder if I will ever fit into those pants? I'm currently just fitting into a size 44.
