7 Month Bandiversary

Yesterday was my 7 month bandiversary. Wow! How time flies! I can't believe it's already been 7 months. I am about 97 pounds down. I kind of wish I could have said I had lost 100 in 7 months, but the time will come soon. I'm still amazed that I have lost so much so quickly. I would have never imagined!

A lot has changed in 7 months. Here's a list of some of the good things that have changed:
I have had to take a link out of my watch;
I have also had to take a link out of a bracelet;
My rings are too big - I am wearing them on other fingers;
I have dropped 2, sometimes 3 shirt sizes;
I have dropped 3 to 4 pant sizes;
I have dropped countless bra cups; and
My feet have even shrunk a bit too, about a size.

And the bad thing - I am noticing a lot of excess skin on my upper arms. I'm glad the weather will get cooler soon and I will be able to wear 3/4 or long sleeve shirts. I think I will soon be sporting 3/4 sleeve shirts year round!

Here are my before and 7 month photos -

Anywho, that's it for the moment.

The Little People's Section

I did something the Friday before last (sorry I'm a little late in this blog post) that I never thought I would do... I shopped in the little people's section at WalMart. (The little people's section is what I call the regular size clothing section.) I was looking for some wear around the house/workout pants and found that I fit into... get this... an XL! (GASP!!!) I know! I was just as dumbfounded. I went straight to the plus size section as usual, but to my surprise the pants were too big. So, I moved into the little people's section. I tried on the XXL. A couple of those were even too big. So, I tried on the XLs and they fit! Granted they are a little snug in the tummy area, but these kind of pants stretch out with wear. I didn't want to buy a bigger size and have them falling off while I'm walking on the treadmill or something. Another great thing about shopping in the little people's section - clothes are cheaper!

Tomorrow is my 7 month bandiversary. Pictures to come....

The Dreaded "P" Word

The time has come for the dreaded "P" word. Plateau. Yuck. I have been stuck at a 90 pound weight loss for the past couple of weeks. I suppose it's time to step up the exercising and pay more attention to what I am eating. I really don't want to have to journal all my food intake. That is such a hassle. But I will do it if I have to. I've gotten my happy butt to the gym at my apartment complex a couple of times lately. I've also walked around the complex a bit too. It's a lot nicer now that it is starting to cool down a bit. It's sad that 80 degrees is cool, but it is.

In other news, it's time for a new bra. My boobs are getting smaller and smaller. They're still big enough that I have to go to a specialty shop though. However, when the lady at the store fit me, I had lost 4 inches around and went down two cup sizes. This new bra is the same as the last one but it is so new that it is squeezing the life out of me. My bits are coming out all over the place. It is totally not comfortable. At least not now anyway. I suppose after a little while it will get broken in and feel more comfortable. I can't wait for that to happen.
