Most of my pants are a size 42. They used to be tight on me. They are quite loose now. I have a few size 44s that I tossed in the trash.
My first thought was to go buy a couple of pairs in a size 40, but I decided I’d rather wait a while longer, and buy 38s, purely for my own psychological reasons 🙂
I am still losing weight, although slower. I haven’t been as diligent in tracking my weight, but I still do it now and again. I look a bit thinner in the face. My gut is a little smaller, and a lot softer. My leg muscles are much more toned from using the elliptical.
I don’t suffer from depression as much. I rarely binge-eat. My alcohol consumption is way down. I drink a lot of water. I still drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day.
My diet change is now habit, and I don’t have to think about it much. My digestive system work better now (I’m not going into detail about this). I didn’t realize how badly I was abusing my body until I changed my habits.
I haven’t weighed in a few days, but I will soon, and I’ll update it here, but I assume I weight about 270. That means I’ve dropped about 26 pounds in approximately 3 months. I still have at least 70 pounds left to lose, but these three months have made a dramatic difference in my life.
