Reaping the benefits
Sunday, November 20, 2011
Had a great day today. It was a 40k tournament day, which usually means at least some kind of cheats, but I stayed strong all day long. Took vitamins and chugged water while other people were chugging mountain dew, had a small turkey sandwich and grapes on the dinner break when everyone else got pizza and garlic rolls. Worked out before the tournament, got home, folded my laundry, then went and worked out again.
I bought some new clothes yesterday, just a pair of well-fitting jeans and a polo from Wal Mart, and I wore them today for the first time. Everyone noticed and commented on how much weight I've lost! It's great to be able to finally buy some new stuff to wear so I'm not walking around in saggy, ratty shirts full of holes anymore. I was shrinking out of everything I picked up so fast that there was no point before now, but I'm down to a single-XL, and that'll be my size until I'm really freaking lean, at least a couple months. I'm trying to decide how much clothing to pick up, and I guess that depends a lot on what I can find that I like. I need to pay a visit to Burlington soon, since their XL rack is much much bigger than their plus size area. I'll need to get my kilt resized soon, but I think I'll wait until after the winter to get that done. Right now, it literally falls right off of me.
