Ok I am so stoked; I have to tell you guys all about my clothes shopping experience I had today! I have gotten a few new shirts since I started this but they were ordered out of a catalog because that is what I have been used to doing. When I was 338 it got to the point where I couldn’t just go in to a store and pick something out; I had to order it out of a special plus size magazine because no one carried my sizes. When I started this I was wearing 4XL and they HAD to be 32 inches long. Now I’m to a 2XL and I don’t have to worry about the length. I went to Shopko in town with my Mom today and got 3 new shirts, a crochet cardigan, and 3 new pairs of pants which I was also able to get 2 sizes smaller. I also got new undies and they are so cute! No more granny panties. No more having to give myself wedgies just so they would stay on! Lol but it was so nice looking at CUTE clothes and not have to be in the old lady section because that’s only were they carried my plus sizes. Everything fit great with no frustrations in the dressing room. I’m just in awe that it went so well. Especially in Iron River of all places! Ha!
I weighed myself this morning and I have lost another pound. Now I am at -61 pounds! I think a pound is pretty good considering it was just the day before yesterday when I was at -60. I am very happy.
Did you guys notice how I haven’t been talking about or planning my “big” end of the month cheat day? Me either lol. I JUST remembered about it yesterday. I cannot believe I forget about it! That used to be a big deal to me but I don’t care anymore. My Mom said we should have an end of the month shopping day instead of me ordering pizzas with Michael. I think that’s a great idea because the high I got off of just trying on clothes today was much greater than the high I would get eating pizza. It is much easier now to say no to that kind of stuff and my cheat days don’t seem so important to me. I used to have my cheat meal planned out to a science a whole week in advance! Lol – I’m not saying that I won’t cheat; I’m sure there will be times where I will cheat but they won’t be planned out to a T like they used to be.
I woke up this morning and had 2 eggs and toast for breakfast. I had a low calorie Subway sub for lunch and I have no idea what I’m having for dinner yet. I went to the grocery store yesterday and the lady at the check out said she almost didn’t recognize me…COOL! I don’t think I’ve seen her working since I started my diet so it was nice to get a reaction like that.
We are having a fire tomorrow night and I plan to cheat with a few drinks. I didn’t cheat with food today and if I do have a few drinks tomorow I will just consider that my cheat day. I don't have plans to cheat with food this weekend other than that. I may not even drink, depends on who shows up!
I can't wait to see what month 5 of my journey has in store for me. I plan to keep busting my butt with diet and exercise! I am so proud of myself for sticking it out this long.
