The Beginnings of Progress


I'm just beginning to see some progress in my weight loss. I put on a fitted T-shirt today that I haven't worn by itself in a while (I've been putting jackets or hoodies over it), and it looks better than it did last time I wore it. I used to have to put a cami on under it to smoothe things out and then I'd have to suck in, but today it looked decent! Also, one particular pair of jeans is fitting looser, but I can't tell if that's because I'm losing weight or if it's just because today was the 2nd time I've worn them. Who knows? I think I'm just going to think positive and say it's the weight loss ;)

One reason I've done well this week is because I had my wisdom teeth cut out this past Friday. My face still hurts a little bit today (Monday), and I still don't feel compltely comfortable eating solid food. I tried eating some macaroni for dinner, but it didn't go well. I'm paranoid that some food's going to get stuck back there in the hole or that I'm going to get dry socket. Also, it just hurt. My teeth and jaw are sore, like I said.

Anyway, so basically all I've been eating lately is liquid and soft food like pudding, yogurt, applesauce, etc. Since there's only so much of that kind of stuff you can eat, I've been getting a little bored with eating lately. And that's a good thing! Because most days I haven't even been able to hit my Points target for the day (which is 26). I've been seeing the effects on the scale.

My current statistics:

HW: 226
SW: 212
CW: 201.5
GW: 150

I'm so so so so close to breaking 200! That's what I've really looking forward to. My mini-goal is to get to under 200 lbs by Valentine's Day, and I'm starting to think I might be able to do it. Yay! I haven't weighed what I weigh now in almost 2 years!

[Sigh]... I just hope I can keep on doing this. I've done so well so far... especially with the wisdom teeth diet... haha. I forgot to say that I'm going to have to go on a liquid diet again this summer... I'm having corrective jaw surgery in June, and I'm going to have to go on a liquid dieti for 6 to 8 weeks. I was like daaaaamnnn! That's gonna suck so bad. BUT, I'll probably lose weight, so that's always a plus. Yeahhhh buddy.

So. Here's to loose pants and cut-out wisdom teeth. Hurrah!
