I woke up on Sunday to loose clothing again! These were someone else's beautiful fat clothes they had shrunk out of. I remember being so excited! Then when I got them home I found that most of them were too tight, and I realized that I was in the biggest clothing size of my life.
Well, now they are loose! Loose enough that these pants will be going straight into a Goodwill box after they are washed, and I am beyond thrilled! Even though I didn't get to enjoy them.
It's funny how we perceive ourselves. In my mind's eye I do not see myself as morbidly obese, but this is not reality. On some level I know this to be true, but until I see a photo of myself it doesn't fully sink in. I want to realize this fact in a productive way, but there is a danger to want hide out after such enlightenment. Anyway, on to Sunday's weigh-in:
5 pounds down, and I'll take it! Before this weigh-in I was formulating a plan of attack for the next week: Do I need to lower my calories? Get more exercise in? It was just a time of assessing what might need to be tweaked, because you never know what's going to happen when you get up on that scale. I think I'm happy with my calories right now (though I have been taking Sundays off of counting calories and exercise) and will focus on growing stronger in fitness for the present. The workout plan for this week is Tony Horton's Power Half Hour.
Pushin' through the pain!
