Feb 6, 208.5, but I weighed in at 209

Remember last week when I was so hungry, and Sunday when I lost control and binged? Well, ever since then, I've been getting less and less hungry every day. I went without most of my food today and only finally ate a little of my dinner mostly because I wanted to try the turkey stew, not because I wanted to eat. In fact, the idea of eating so late disturbed me to think of this morning's weigh-in. Eh, whatever. As long as I'm still below 210. And I am.

And my gosh, you can really tell it when you pull out clothes that you wore back then. In 2006 I went to San Francisco and went into a souvenir shop to buy a jacket to keep me warm there. So disheartening that there were no jackets there that I liked that would fit me. I wound up buying the one I have on now. I filled it then. Now I'm swimming in it. Under that I'm wearing a red velour top that I haven't been able to wear for a long time, but I kept it in case I ever lost weight because it was just that lovely and perfect for me. And today it fits well. (It's actually going to be too big soon!)

I've lost over 75 pounds, it's time for more progress pics. Laterz.

Isn't it cool when You are swimming in your old clothes.
But then you look at your old clothes and way I was that big.
Now you way I am that small.
You will get even smaller.
It's as weird feeling as it sounds.

What wonderful progress! Swimming in your jacket... what a fun problem to have. ;-)

Thanks for your comment on my blog. That was interesting about what you said about being able to eat small amounts of sugar/flour and still not have out of control cravings. There is research that talks about 2 types of metabolisms. They call them Met A and Met B. One does okay like you, with portion control of anything, including moderate sugar/flour. The other, Met B, is like me, who is very carb sensitive. So, we are not all the same!
Sounds like you are finding your own successful path. Good job!
