This month has been a blast. I am still losing weight steadily.
Last Sunday I had the chance to find a scale near and I was very happy to learn that I finally beat the 100 kilos mark! As of last Sunday I was 98 kilos! I might weigh less than that.
I know it seems like a lot, but if you take into account that I am 190 cm tall, I'm not too far off my ideal weight. That would take me out of the overweight area on the BMI table.
All my clothes are huge!
One of the best things I have ever lived happened two days ago. I gave away my fat clothes. My XXL and XXL t-shirts, gone! My 44 and 42 pants and cargo shorts... gone!
I only kept about 7 XXL t-shirts. I kept two 38 size cargo shorts and a pair of pants. They all are huge, same as all my underwear. I think I might be 36 size now, but I will confirm that until I go to a department store and try on some clothes.
I don't want to buy clothes now until I know what my final weight will be. The buying will have to wait
At any rate, the feeling is fantastic.
On another news, I have kept running and now I started training for a full marathon. Lets see if I can do it. That will be until September. Wish me luck!
My meals are still super small and AS is epic. I barely eat. I don't feel weak or tired. Nothing. If anything, I feel much more energetic than ever before.
On a curious note, I have noticed that in my mind I still see myself as a fat guy. I keep a lot of customs and behaviors of a fat guy. Like when I get up from the table. I was so heavy I had to use my hands and arms to support my weight and help my legs while standing up.
I catch myself doing that even if I don't need to. I simple stop and get up normally.
There are times when I walk and I catch myself trying to balance my weight the way I used to when I was huge. It's pretty weird.
When I see myself in the mirror, I see this weird guy I'm still not familiar with.
But if you think about it, I have been fat all my life (40 years). I guess it's natural that my mind still behaves like it did. It will take time to get used to my new body.
Finally... here are a couple of photos. My girlfriend took them today, a couple hours ago.
And just for reference, this is me last month:
Will I ever hit 90 kilos? Only time will tell. All I can say is I am a very happy Shangri-la resident.
Here's to Seth and to another month in SLD.
