Sprained Knee

Well I sprained my knee on Wednesday and haven't been able to exercise since. It has definitely taken its toll on being discouraging. But despite that, I've lost 4lbs....Not sure how or why or what but there it is. I can say that I still diet.. Eat my correct calories and portions... But just no exercise unless you count crutching around the house. :/ Hopefully not muscle loss. I'll restart exercising slowly next week. I'm just so close aarrggghhhhhh!!!!!!

Reminder pants

So, I have saved all my size 26 & 28 size clothes. I still wear them and all because 1) I don't really believe in wasting money on clothes that I don't plan on fitting either in a few months and 2) I like to be reminded of my progress based on the fit of those clothes now compared to almost a year ago. My 2nd son will be 1 year old in 2 days so it reminds me that I started this journey about 11 months ago...Almost a year ago...

But anyway, today I put on these size 28 pants that I love from Lane Bryant. I have worn them the whole time seeing them get looser and looser, but today something was different. I could barely walk in them without tripping, and having to pull them up from walking. Apparently, I didn't realize that the pants getting bigger would also mean them getting longer in a sense. They are so loose that it is borderline presentable in a business setting. It has caused me to consider retiring one of my favorite pants. :/

Bitter Sweet I guess....What a difference a year makes....
I'm 307lbs

So close I can taste it!!

I am 309lbs and officially 10 pounds from seeing the 200s for the first time in almost 10 years. How bout that? I've already done a quick exercise today and have some cleaning and stuff to do so I will be moving quite a bit today while being aware of what I am eating for the day. Water weight is officially gone so I finally can keep pressing forward to obtain my goal of being 260 in exactly 2 months. It is an optimistic goal and I know I may not reach it, but I will push for it until I do get there!

I look forward to more good progress soon...
