Week #18 Update

It hardly seems possible to me that it has already been 18 weeks on this journey. I started the 2nd week of January and here it is almost Memorial Day already, crazy! It was an interesting week for sure so I’ll get right to the numbers, and talk about some of the crazy things from this past week. Here are the numbers for last week:

  • I was really excited to see my self get back on my losing track and get back to that 5 pound lost level, where I like to be most weeks. It amazes me how much of a difference water makes on your diet, that was really the biggest difference that I made last week was a recommitment to water intake. I was getting somewhere between 5-7 quarts of water a day, a marked increase from previous weeks. 
  • I have now lost 130 pounds, and sometimes the magnitude of the numbers that I am losing doesn’t really sink in to me so I tried to find somethings to compare it to. So here are some things that weigh about 130 pounds: 15.5 gallons of water, Katy Perry (don’t ask me how I know that, just that when I googled “what weighs 130 pds” that was the top hit), that’s about 694 chicken wings, 231 baseballs, about 3.5 Kindergartners, about 29,120 plain M&M’s.
  • I was at Wal-Mart last night picking up some cheap T-shirts to get be by during this weight loss, cause my old clothes are now clown clothes on me. As I was looking through the stacks I did notice that my size was not the largest one on the rack, it has been years and years since that was the case. My shopping almost always consisted going to the rack and finding the largest size and praying that I fit into it, not anymore!!
  • I was sitting at my desk the other day talking with someone when I realized that I was able to comfortably cross my leg, that is something I couldn’t begin to tell you when the last time it was I was able to do that. I have decided that it is most definitely about the little things!! 
  • I am still getting used to the idea that I can wear a 2X shirt comfortably and 42″ jeans, both of these are sizes that I haven’t seen in ages. I am about 10 pounds away from size 40 jeans and then I am knocking on the door of the size 30’s for jeans, that will definetly be a great day!
