Historically, anytime I've attempted to lose weight I've kept a set of clothes at each size for "just in case". What kind of defeatist approach is that? It really says I'm not going to make it so keep these clothes for when I don't.
This weekend I got rid of the first group of clothes that no longer fit because they are too large. Wow! It was great and it was also great that I have plenty of the next size down so no need to shop.
I'm down 47 lbs. (355 to 308) since May 29th, 2011.
I am grateful for the opportunity to eat right and exercise. I don't take this for granted. I don't have a magic formula but for me fruit, vegetables, lean meat and plenty of water with about an hour a day walking seems to work for now. I try to keep the focus on nutrition vs. weight loss
Now the really cool thing is my wife and daughter have joined me so there is a really nice level of support in my home.
I really appreciate you guys and it's so good to read the great things that are happening and the support for when there are bumps in the road.
