Lap Day 3 Months

I think the smartest thing we ever did was take a picture of Nando with the same bear every month till he reaches 1 year of age. it's a good way to show progress. The same blue shorts. Practically tore up the bedroom trying to find them. Here I am at 280 pounds from 350 (far left photo if you didn't know). Pretty cool. I have my good days and bad days, don't get me wrong. Protein shakes are still a bitch and thus I haven't had any in a while. Trying to be more active. Last week I walked 6 miles out of the blue. I have a wedding on Saturday and I can't wait to see how I look in the tux all dressed to the nines. Is it vain? a little. But I haven't seen THIS face in a long time apparently. It feels good.

Lap Day: 2 months plus 18: Filling in

today I weigh in at 285. From 350. that's a 65 pound weight loss since my surgery on January 27. I fit COMFORTABLY in a 2x shirt again. i haven't let go of my big guy mentality and still hold onto some of my 3x clothing/shirts. Pants are getting very loose. I'm wearing a wasit 44 now. the picture there shows me in my size 48 jeans which at times were too tight but right now are so loose, the extra slack on my belt practically goes around my waist. How do I feel? good. My physical self is fine. Energy level is good. Just still unemployed. That's the only downside. Right now, hunger wise, i've been doing okay. Dinner for me is usually by 4pm and the rest of the day ( i am up early b/c of Nando) is fluids and if the hunger strikes, a yogurt. Haven't had the protein shakes in a while. I know I should but bleh. I just eat my chicken for my protein and my eggs.

Lap Day-2 mos +9 (Weighing In)

After a nice Easter weekend and all the food that was around me, I did okay. Sciatica has been acting up and that's been a real bitch. Hoping it'll go away like it usually does and come back another day. Today, weighed in this morning at 292. From 350. 58 pounds. I can't believe it. I'm wearing 2x shirts again. Comfortably. I still wear my 3x shirts b/c part of me just can't let it go that i'm this small again after a long long time. I'm happy. Hell, sometimes I want to cry b/c i'm so happy. I even gave a friend of mine all my 4x shirts to give to her husband. It's nice.
