Well Yesterday Didn't Suck That Much

Contrary to my original estimation of yesterday, it really wasn't all that bad. When I went to get weighed I was expecting the worst and thought I would have gained weight, but I didn't in the end. I didn't lose weight either, and stayed with a maintained weight, but hey that's not bad. Technically my streak of continuous losses is still alive.
Not every losing streak is bad
My weight loss has actually been getting me a little depressed lately if I'm honest. I've lost a lot of weight and I can't take that way. But I still have a long way to go and when I think about that I get depressed. Plus I was always wearing the same clothes so I wasn't feeling like I was really losing weight. Even a friend of mine who's lost a ton of weight says she feels fat in her old clothes. So yesterday I did something I haven't done in a while; I went clothes shopping.
It helped they were on sale.
I only bought two shirts in the end but that's really all I needed. The shirts were two sizes smaller than the clothes I normally wear. I've dropped two shirt sizes and that feels pretty great. One of the shirts is a button up shirt that doesn't quite go all the way around my gut, but it fits as an overshirt and that's fine. Plus when it does button up it means that I've lost another good chunk of weight. I also had a smile because when I gave the shirt to my dad to scan it, he said it was his size, thinking I was confused, and congratulated me when I said it was my size now too. So let that be a lesson to you folks; if you're losing weight keep updating your wardrobe. It sucks I still can't fit into the largest pairs of trousers they have but that's just another goal. 

I can't really think of a question to take away from this, so when was the last time you bought new clothes?

  1. Talking about losing weight... I'm watching the documentary Fed Up while writing this :)

    1. I'm afraid I don't really know what that documentary is about, but a guess would be something to do with weight loss.

  2. That's brilliant to go buy yourself something in your new, smaller size as encouragement to continue dieting! It's a both a reward for your diligence and a signpost of your progress. Good for you!

  3. Two sizes? That's huge man! Or rather, not huge anymore! Good job, keep it tight. ;D

  4. I can't afford clothes. I have been wearing 2 potato sacks held together with rubber bands for 2 years now.

  5. I was obese as a kid. My mum cried the first time I could put on a pair of jeans that didn't have elastic in them.

  7. In my mind, congratulations are in order. Didn't you go on holiday? The fact that you didn't gain weight is pretty significant.
    Speaking of clothes....at my age, the main reason I don't want to gain weight is so I don't have to buy new clothes (when I was younger, it was so I looked good to the ladies). Oh yeah, and I guess keeping weight off is healthy. Yeah, well, there's that.
    But, new clothes are expensive!
