Weigh in day! I have to be honest with you - I really thought the number here would be higher, because I had another week of going over my calories almost every day because I'm so freaking hungry lately! It's crazy; I just want to eat constantly. UGH.
I got on the scale this morning though and it said I was down a half pound from last week. That keeps me hovering at 8 pounds lost in the past 8 weeks, and also means I only lost two freaking pounds
this month. NOT COOL.
Luckily for my self esteem, yesterday was measurement day at boot camp, and that helped. I may have only lost two pounds, but apparently I was gaining some muscle because my measurements did go down.
I lost 3.75 inches all over this month. I also learned that I can't do math, and I did not lose 11.75 inches last month as my lack of addition skills led me to believe, but a still respectable 9.75. My loss this month wasn't as impressive as last month's, but like I said, I ate. A LOT. I'll take my almost four inch loss, thank you very much!
I'm starting to have an issue with my clothes. My pants are all loose around my waist, but still fit okay in the hips and thighs. This makes for me looking like a fool hiking up my jeans all day. How do you deal with this? I don't like belts - I find them to be uncomfortable to the point they're painful. If I was only standing they'd be fine, but when I sit down they dig into all that squashy flesh (mmm, pretty visual, amirite?) and it HURTS.
I'm too young for elastic waist pants!!!
I'm also having a problem with bras. They're all too big around now, which is leading to them gapping and riding up in the back. It's very uncomfortable! I hate shopping for bras - they never seem to fit right. I'll try them on and they'll seem okay in the store, but after wearing them for a couple of hours they'll not be comfortable anymore. When I find a style I like that fits okay I tend to buy a bunch in different colors and just stick with those. Then I get all mad when they discontinue that style eventually.
Yeah, I'm looking at YOU Victoria's Secret who only keeps bras for a year at a time. Grrr.
I'd like to conclude this entry by pointing out my biggest loss this month was in my hips - FFA, indeed!
