Today it’s been a month and a week since I first started dieting. If you recall, I began at an exorbitant amount of 136.5 lbs and have been going down somewhat consistently. Some weeks it seems nothing is happening, but come Tuesday, my update day, I’m usually slimmer than the week before. This has been my weekly progress so far:
Week 1: 131 lbs (lost 5.5)
Week 2: 129 lbs (lost 2)
Week 3: 129 lbs (nothing happened)
Week 4: 128.5 lbs (lost .5 WTH?!)
Week 5: 127 lbs (lost 1.5)
As you can see some weeks have been very frustrating, while others were amazingly good. Week 1 is still puzzling to me. Maybe it was beginners luck? Maybe it was my body’s way of saying “Hooray! She finally heard me, lets give her some incentive here!” Don’t know, but by now I’m not expecting another week to produce a 5.5 reduction any more.
Now in terms of sizes, my size 6 pants are loose on me. Some to the point I really can’t wear them any more, but others are just very comfortable. My size 4 pants (this is the skinny jean category) zip up, but I look and feel like I’m wearing lycras, and who wants to relive the 80s, right?
My shirts and sweaters are much looser too. I think I’ve completely lost my cheeks though. Unfortunately my face slims down when I lose wait, which is not recommended while one’s aging. But hey, I’m closer than before to fitting into those jeans, and that’s the goal, so hooray! 9.5 lbs down, 5.5 to go!
