I don't know if I mentioned it here, but ballistabob and I joined WW about three weeks ago. (Okay, he did four weeks ago, and I three.)

My main reason for joining was not so much the loss of weight (although it is always a plus), but mostly the learning more about nutrition. I must say, I have been rather pleased with the results and how user-friendly this system is. And since it is about counting points and keeping check, you also learn about what foods you can eat that won't cost you much, as opposed to those which will "eat" out your entire point supply and have no nutritional value.

Oh, and we're doing it online, not with the meetings. Bonus points for the ease of use of their system. It is a lot more user friendly than Fit Day and it has very good recipes to boot.

Anywhoo, the good news is that I have lost about 4 pounds so far. (I only want to lose 10 before going into "maintenance" mode.) The bad news is, my clothes are becoming loser.

Now, this is not a problem with mundane clothes, which are very forgiving in general, not to mention easy to alter. What I am concerned about is my boned kirtles, particularly the one that I am planning on wearing for our last Court at Investiture. Methinks that I will have to take it in a little bit, lest my girls do not get the support they deserve.

Oh, well. Those are the perils of losing weight.

But since I have kept up with my strenght training and my cardio, at least I may be getting closer to those Linda Hamilton triceps after all.

But it still sucks that I will have to alter my clothes.

Yay for triceps! But this time last year, I had to quit working out, or risk not being able to fit my triceps into the sleeves of my wedding dress. It wasn't an option to let those lined, lace covered sleeves out.

Hey, fitting into a nifty wedding dress is a good reason for putting the working out on hold. You can always get the triceps, but you don't get married every day :-)

I'm staring at 4 pairs of work pants that I need to take in the waist before I walk the hem off them.

Is it spring break yet?

Not yet, sigh. Allegedly, we still have 6 more weeks of winter, such as it is. At least, according to some random hedgehog somewhere in Pennsylvania.

It is awesome. We both have been using it and it really rocks.

I've started tracking calories, fiber, and saturated fat for much the same reason--I want to understand better what I'm eating. I call it the "eat less crap" plan. If it comes from a vending machine, it's probably crap. Of course, I could stand to lose the 15 lbs I've gained since starting my desk job, but I'm not too worried about that since my desk job goes away in 4 months. And I really don't want to take in my kirtles either!

Yeah, anthing that comes from the vending machine is probably crap. And another lesson learned is: A corset a bit small can always be left a little bit open. A corset too large is hopeless.

Sigh.

I feel your pain. This is why I have a closet full of garb that doesn't fit! But it's a good reason for not having garb that fits. :-) Congrats on the loss!

Fantastic job!

Sorry about the clothes getting too big. You did want to use up that fabric stash on new clothes, yes? :)

Absolutely! Hey, any excuse to use the fabric is a good excuse.

Congrats. I've been doing WW since the end of Oct. Yesterday I hit the 20lb loss mark.

Yea, for clothes not fitting! (I hadn't even thought about how the majority of my garb won't fit anymore! ACk)

Keep up the good work and pass on my 'atta boy' to ballistabob as well!
