After weighing myself on Wednesday and finding out I’m now down 90 lbs since 2010 … I knew deep within, I had lost more than that… but it is Saturday and I am not near any scale that I trust.
This morning or late last morning, I stayed up watching teevee till almost 3AM … watching a new reality show about a bunch of New Jersey teens on a Cheer Squad … don’t ask me how I got tangled up in this show please … but I was laying in bed, wearing my wonderful CPAP and my eyes were glued to the tube … this AM I woke up at three different intervals … [yes there is a purpose to me telling you this!!!]
I finally sprung out of bed when I heard my door knocker knocking … it was my friend Ann. Long story short … our supper plans tonight were swapped to lunch plans and she was fully dressed ready to go and I was still in my clothes from last night (don’t ask) … with bed head. I scrambled to put on clothes and I just grabbed a long sleeve shirt out of my closet without really seeing what I had grabbed.
To my GREAT SURPRISE and SHOCK …. I pulled over my big melon and over my shoulders and through my arms a size 2X shirt from my Alma Mater. I graduated from MMC in May of 2001. The last time I wore this warm cozy shirt was early 2002 … and it has stayed perfectly perfect in my closet for yes, the past ten years untouched. I did not have the heart to give it away. And here I was … wearing it with room in the belly area.
Can I hear a HELL YAH???? Holy shit balls people. I was stunned. I mean, I didn’t even have to stretch the shirt over my knees before leaving the house (like the old days) … It literally fit over my head and through my shoulders and all of that jazz.
Even better was once I got to my mom’s joint, I tried on a winter coat I had bought many years ago, also in a 2X … it fit great with once again, room to spare in the belly vicinity.
Then … I got back home and thought about my birthday gift of the 2X sweatshirt with a hood hanging in my closet since I had turned 45 this past July 17 …. the one from Norm’s Bar & Grill in Springfield … remember the photo I had once posted????? Yup that one…
IT FIT. It fit. Okay so it was slightly snug but I know a month from today, that with all of my hard work of exercising and continuing following the rules of being a lap bandster …. I KNOW it will fit awesomely.
Come on people… isn’t this soooooo awesome!?!?!?!?!? It is. It really really is.
And I’ve done it all by myself. Oh and with a lot of encouragement from all of you too!!!!
But Holy Shit Balls eh????
Oh and one more thing ….
I had been wearing a 5X. Yuppers … FIVE X. That was XXXXXL for shirts. Or a 30/32. Now 2X. That is XXL. And for pants/shorts I am now in a 1X.
Peace out boys and girls!!!
