I am starting to think that I can't just be happy with the good news.
I have to tear it apart!
A few years back. It was right around this time. It may have been about 5 years ago.
Out of nowhere I lost a bunch of weight without even trying.
I remember going to my families house for Thanksgiving and all the comments I got for the amount of weight I had lost. This was not long after my diagnosis of MS. So I chalked it up to that.
I remember my weight 188 and I even have pictures and the jeans I wore that day.
So this is what is bugging me..I was 3-4 pounds lighter then I am right now. But I am nowhere near wearing those size 12 jeans. I was a bit younger then. They say that when you hit your mid-30's that it becomes harder to lose weight.
A while back I had tried on a pair of shorts that I had bought early this summer that were a bit tight. I had tried them on when I lost a few pounds and they fit way better.
I have 2 pairs of my favorite jeans hanging on the wall. I have yet try them on and I have no plan to.
This being because I am not seeing a difference.
Early this summer I hit my high of 208. So that is 2 pounds shy of a 20 pound loss at my current weight. I mean you would think I would notice a difference. I started dieting back then but did not get serious about it till September when I was at a weight of 203.
So I started thinking. Well, maybe I am losing in other places. I have a bra that I bought early this summer that was too small but I figured I would hang onto it so I had one to wear when I lost weight. I tried it on today. It is not so small that I would not wear it as before. But there is no HUGE difference.
Is it just me??? I would think with a 12 pound loss that I would see something.
Plus there is the fact that the last time I weighed just 3 pounds less. I was wearing a size 12 and I am now still in a 18 maybe a 16. I have not tried anything on with a number yet. But I can just tell that they won't fit and I am not about to give myself that let down.

So I guess what they say is TRUE! When you age it is harder to lose the weight.
I have a string. It is actually cooking yarn. I had cut it to the size of my waist way back in July when I was at 208. It also shows no difference and that is almost a 20 pound difference. I am just boggled as to where the weigh is coming off of.
