Sorry I've been sort of MIA lately. I've been working on some projects: sewing Halloween costumes for Sniece and Rnephew (I'll blog about them later over on Oh Frog It), prepping for NaNoWriMo (I'll post more about writing later, probably tomorrow), and also working on my closet (which I'll blog about over on Out of This Rut).
But I thought I'd give you an update about weight loss. Not much has been going on. The last couple weeks I was so occupied with the creation of the costumes that I didn't exercise and didn't count calories. I don't know what it is. But I just can't figure out how to count calories on days that I sew. I forget to log food, how much I ate, what I ate. I think part of it is that I have to use every brain cell to sew because even though I can follow a pattern and even alter a pattern, I still have to work at it. I have to focus and any little distraction, I'm screwed. I lost count of the seams that I had to rip out and redo because someone distracted me while I was sewing. So anyways... I wasn't surprised that I had gained some over the last couple weeks.
Weight: 256.8 lbs
Pounds to Goal: 6.8
My interest in losing weight has been renewed in the last few days because I found a fun site (GoChicorGoHome.com) where you upload photos of your clothes and make outfits. And playing around has reminded me of my desire to wear the clothes that I want to wear (that's a rant for a whole 'nother day). So many styles (and colors) of clothes aren't manufactured for plus size women. I want to be able to just pick up a pair of jeans off the rack or a blouse or dress. I'm tired of having to scour for my size and it being hit or miss. And then having limited options, limited styles and on top of that paying more. So far today things have been going well in the exercise/calorie counting area, so I'm optimistic. Things are looking up.
