Good morning! It’s been a while since I’ve updated about my operation of the pant losing sort (I have a number of other operations going on at the moment, it’s like I’m a spy).
Overall I think that progress has been made. Like I’ve stated before, this is definitely going to be a slow progress. I know my body better than anyone, and if I lost a bunch of weight at once, I know I’d gain it back even faster than I lost it. But overall I think I’ve made some definite positive progress.
The hardest thing for me is still eating junk at the end of the day. I have gotten better, which is something I suppose, but I haven’t stopped completely. I definitely know that when I get a steady schedule, that my eating habits will be a lot better. Right now I have no schedule, so it’s hard to plan meals and eat around well, nothing. I don’t eat when I’m bored anymore, which I’m very happy about. That took a lot more will power than I’d probably ever openly admit in person, but I know that for that, I’ve gotten a lot better. Now I find when I’m bored I’ve been reading, or going for a walk (depending on the time of day), or practising piano. Anything to keep my mind occupied. The late night one will definitely be tougher, because some days I don’t eat much throughout the day, and I don’t feel that nagging hunger poking at me until later in the evening. But alas, I shall prevail!
I tried on a pair of jeans that an acquaintance from first year college had given me. I probably wouldn’t have bought them, because they are a bit too long for me (well a lot too long for me, I have very short legs), and are a very light blue denim, which isn’t the most flattering on me. But oh well, they were free. Anyways, they were quite tight when I originally got them. Then I didn’t wear them as much in second year because I had gained a bit of weight. Then throughout the summer and the beginning of third year I had lost some weight, and they were fitting quite loose. I had to constantly wear a belt with them because I could not for the life of me get them to stay on my ass. Well, stress and everything caught up with me, and I ended up gaining some weight, enough that I couldn’t comfortably wear them anymore. Last week I tried them on, and they’re fitting quite loose again. So hurray! That’s what I love about jeans, they always tell you when you need to cut back on the chips.
Also, another happy clothing moment for me – I have a really cute jacket that I didn’t want to wear last year at all because I felt that it was too tight (which was completely accurate). I tried that on the other day, and it’s fitting much better. I still want to wait a bit, because I think with a bit of time it’ll fit like a glove again.
Hopefully I didn’t bore you! But that’s how my operation is going with me. I’ve been finding that I have a lot more energy, and also a lot more motivation to exercise. Yesterday I could have taken the bus downtown to meet my friend for coffee. Instead, I walked the 45-50 minutes. Today I have to go to the bank. I could wait for my parents to drive me later, but I think after I eat my breakfast and get dressed, I’ll walk the disgustingly uphill walk up to the bank. Why? Because I know I can do it, I used to do it all the time when I worked up that way, so I can do it now. Laziness shall not prevail!
Oh, on another note, I took a picture of my breakfast. I love oatmeal, it is one of my favourite breakfast foods. I never use that instant crap either – all real baby. I like to put some frozen berries in when I start heating up the water, because by the time I add the oatmeal, the water is a really pretty purple colour, and the berries are nice and hot when the oatmeal is done. Plus it really lessens the amount of brown sugar that I’ll want to add. It’s deliciousness. The picture isn’t the best quality because of a)lighting again (my house is dark during the day), and b)my parents camera is even worse than mine, which surprises me. I’m only adding it because the picture looks kind of disgusting, which just goes to show you that sometimes the weirdest, sometimes most unattractive things can really be the yummiest (and as a bonus, sometimes very good for you).
And with that, have a great day and a great week!
