I knew my current jeans were getting baggy, but check this out:
I was getting my second update photo taken, and realized two things:
1. These jeans have to be held up, and
2. This same shirt I wore for the first update photo is now so big, I don't know what to do with all this fabric
The photo was taken this afternoon. My weight is currently 255 (as of yesterday), so I'm within 8 lbs of leaving morbid obesity!
I'm going to have an entirely new outfit for the next update photo (update # 3) ... I'll be posting my official update photo soon, but I've added this (above) as my new profile photo. I don't notice much difference, mostly due to the volume of fabric, but for these few things:
The tummy is down significantly (well, duh ... look at the waist difference on this jeans that "fit" me), and the twins are sitting much higher -- what's with that? LOL
My arms have gone down in size too, but you can't really tell unless you look at how differently the sleeve fits. Look at the photo at the right sidebar, under the motivational word, and you can see it was tighter and riding higher. On this photo, above, it is too long and too baggy. The shirt hasn't changed. I have. I'm not filling that sleeve. Most of what you are seeing is simply hanging, like a drape.
Okay, and I'm also forced to admit, I need new clothes that fit me better. No surprise, big people like loose clothing, but this is getting a little ridiculous ...
Anyway, I wanted to get this posted, before I change out all the photos, for those who may be interested. I don't suspect many will be, but this blog is for me, and it is a good record of my progress.
