February 8th, 2010 & a Large Size Shirt

I'm blogging for yesterday Feb. 8th, today. Last night (8th) we were at Walmart and they were having a clearance on most of their winter clothes for some reason -- (It was 11 degrees last night) so I figured I would look around. I am a pretty stingy guy when it comes to spending money unless it's something that must last. I found a long sleeved shirt that I liked but it was a size Large. I typically get an XL because Larges are just too tight for me to wear. Not this night. I knew I had lost some weight and thought that I would try it on. It's a good thing I did because it fit and it fit well. I don't feel that my stomach is protruding out of the shirt and it is pretty slimming. I don't think my wife had realized that I had lost the weight. She had heard the number but I don't think it registered until this morning when she had said, "You could really tell that you have lost weight". Score! That is enough motivation to keep anyone going.

I didn't get a workout yesterday because my body was so sore. I can't figure out as to why it was. The only thing I could think of is that on Saturday I shoveled loads of heavy wet snow. Either way - I've got to keep pushing!

Food Intake:

1. 1 3/4 cup of Raisin Bran Cereal
2. 1 Banana
3. Oven roasted chicken breast sandwich
4. 12 oz Sprite
5. snack bag of my healthy super bowl snack
6. 2 leftover tacos from super bowl party
7. small portion of some sort of salad -- (it had romain(?) noodles plain, cabbage, almond slivers, nuts, and some sort of oil dressing---i think)
8. 60 + oz of water

Workout: none

Miles til Goal: 932.52

Congrats on the results! I'm sure that felt great!

It's amazing how sometimes people don't notice your clothes getting bigger until they are FALLING off (literally). But once you get something that fits, it's like the light goes on. ;)
