My wife bought me an "inspiration" shirt for our anniversary. by "inspiration," it was supposed to be a shirt I couldn't wear until I lost more weight. It was a large, not XXXL, not XXL, not even XL, but simply large with no prefix. So I tried it on and it fit! Granted it probably runs a little large in the sizing, but it fit none the less. My poor wife. She tried the same thing last Christmas, only the shirt was XL at the time.
Anyhow, I was please to have such a large loss since we had an anniversary, a day at the county fair, a night at our favorite restaurant with awesome homemade desserts, a trip to the city which included eating out, a wine tasting, and a picnic. It's a wonder I didn't gain a ton...but then again, I am learning new habits. I am learning to respect myself. While my eating wasn't always the healthiest, I certainly didn't pig out.
Now, I have hit the next 10 lb. marker. It took about 3 months...well actually, I plateaued for 2 months, and lost he weight in the last month thanks to phase 2 of my fitness scheme. Since I started my blog, I have always taken the ugly truth pictures at every 10 lb. loss. So without any further adieu, here they are...
For comparison, you can find my 250 lb. pictures here and my first pics at 368.6 are here and here. I didn't take any at my high of 380 lbs. or at 370, but you can still see quite a difference anyhow. It makes me sick just to see those pictures, but I am certainly grateful that by the grace of God I have continued on this journey of fitness of which I pray that I remain for the rest of my life.
