Last night at dinner Dick and I talked about me not being able to buy the size 10 pants. For the longest time I'd have just loved to be a size 14, really.
My doctor used to say, Maree, just get under 200 pounds....wouldn't I just love to!! Tell me how, I've tried everything! I could get to 218 and that was that!! I was always the biggest gal in the pictures...but that picture when I was bigger than Dick...just couldn't take it any more.
So back to the pants thing....I've been a size 16/18 for 20 + years. Now only six months later, I can fit into 10's...no magic pills, no surgery, no gimmicks. Just daily logging in my calories, trying to make better choices, exercising everday, nothing I can't do for the rest of my life. Every ten days or so we go to a favorite restaurant and enjoy...but day in and day out....I stay around 1500 calories. I'm never hungry. When I hit goal, I will be able to eat over 2000 calories a day...that seems like a lot and I'll deal with that later. For today...I'm not going to worry about it....it's just going to take some precious time!
