Happy Bug... [Oct. 11th, 2002|06:21 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |happyhappy]
[Current Music |Gala - Freed From Desire]

Today, I have managed to achieve the following:
  • got into a pair of 40" jeans
    I got as high as 44" and have been 42" for 8 months or so, but haven't been at 40" for a fair few years. They're wearing comfortably too, not squeezed in at all!!

  • had to pierce another hole in my belt
    When I bought the belt on our honeymoon in Malta, I was on hole number 3, I've just made hole number 6!!

  • got into my LiveJournal t-shirt
    When we bought our t-shirts, I could hardly get into mine!

  • got into my Meat Loaf t-shirt

You've no idea how happy I am about this!! :-))

The physical appearance is starting to mirror the scales, and I'm seriously chuffed!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats! Well done, it is real tough to change your old habits into healthier ones, I know. Keep up the good work.

Congrats... that is very cool. I went as big as 48" at one point in my life. I've been able to stay with 36" for the longest time now. Sometimes they are tighter than I like but that's when I decide a change is due.

I am one who has seen my belt size increase. I have just started to try and lose a few pounds. Hopefully I will be adding some belt notches too! CONGRATS again! You should be very proud!

!!Congrats Dave!! I know how much of a struggle it is to shed those pounds. How are you losing it btw? I'm a big fan of the old fashioned diet and exercise, just can't be bothered dieting and exercising. Too much like hard work! :o)
