I had a top to return today over my lunch break since it was raining off & on today. I returned it and took the money with plans to buy another top to replace that one. I browsed through the racks and a skirt caught my eye. Size 1x? I took it to the dressing room figuring that it might make a great goal skirt at the price that it was. Well? It fits!!! It's tight but it fits!

Two things.
First I bought a exercise shirt off the clearance rack at Wal-mart. I haven't bought anything but extra-Large for years. I actually picked up the XL and it looked big. Put it back and chose the Large. I wore it to the gym and it fit great!

Second, I don't believe myself to be egotistical but I hit 227# and I have actually started to look at myself in the mirror again. I think I subconsiouly avoided looking at myself because what I saw didn't fit my own mental image of myself. Now I am actually looking for myself in mirrors and windows to see how I am progressing.

Default I got Carded!!!

Yup - two months after my 50th birthday I was asked to show an ID in order to get a beer! The people next to me were jealous - they didn't get carded! Having been working out is very good for my skin - my face is thinner, and younger - I don't think I ever got carded at 30!

Nice Ron! I know exactly what you mean about mirrors and reflections. But I have to admit that some days I still see the size 12 me rather than the size 2 me in reflections - it is odd. Self perception is such a very strange thing

hahahaha. I have found that working out is really benefitting my skin too. Although I am starting to get "old lady" wrinkly skin around my joints which is making me mad .

Triceps. Although, I am hoping that after a few more months they won't be so little lol

I feel great after 6 weeks of my 5x5 routine and losing 21 lbs. since June. I am starting to notice a difference and it's great motivation to keep going.

Congrats!

After two months of rowing, I am starting to wear sleeveless tops where people can see me. This week, met a mini-goal of 165 (10 lbs. down since end of June; 15-20 more to go). Reward will be new exercise clothes.
