This week’s stats:

  • Weekly Weigh-In #24: 205.6 lbs.
  • Last week’s Weigh-In: 206.5 lbs.
  • Gain/loss of: -0.9 lbs.
  • Weekly average lost: 2.0 lbs.
  • Weight loss to date: 91.4 lbs.

Labor Day, the summer’s last big holiday, is now a distant memory and I’m happy about that. It means that as far as excessive food consumption goes, it’s smooth sailing pretty much until Thanksgiving which is almost three months away. Of course Christmas is just a month after that so it’s time I get my act together!

With the holiday, this week’s results come as no surprise. I’m just glad to have lost what I did and not be on the plus side of things. I did weigh in nearly a pound lighter before the holiday but hey, my loss still keeps me at my recommended weekly average.

Speaking of which, my total loss for August was 6.4 lbs. which is slightly over the recommendation. That’s cool.

The buying of new clothes continues! Some of my size 40s are getting huge so I had to head to Target and hit the clearance racks. Unfortunately, their choice was pretty minimal but I did manage to find a few pairs of jeans for $6.24. Levi Strauss, too. They also had some Mossimo jeans on the rack for $24(!), but why anybody would buy Mossimo jeans for $24 instead of Levis for $6 is beyond me.

Speaking of clothes, I’m sad to say that my favorite Low Rider shirt (note: I was 218 lbs. in that picture) is getting too big as well. This was the shirt Ann had bought me years ago that I swore to her I would fit into one day. At the time of purchase I could only fasten two buttons on this size Large shirt. Today, the shirt is so baggy that it’s almost falling off of me, so I guess I needs to (reluctantly) replace it.

But I’m sure that since I’m now fitting into smaller sizes, I’ll easily be able find something not so fat-guyish.

See you later 🙂

  1. It’s always frustrating buying new clothes and trying to find ones that fit. My hubby actually bought the Massimo over the Levi, but it’s because they fit better.

  2. Frustrating, but enjoyable when you finally find the right ones. I’ve found Wal-Mart’s Faded Glory are at least one size smaller than they are labeled, but I guess that’s what you get when you spend $8 for a pair of jeans, huh? Oh, and I’ve added your blog to my Google Reader subscriptions. Always good to see others change their habits and watching them transform 🙂
