Make now, wear later
My recent weight loss has been something I’ve been quite public about because, even though talking about such things makes me slightly uncomfortable, I hoped it would keep me accountable and on track. As a result of this, people I know in person and online often ask me how things are going.
My Ribbed Pullover Vest (made with BMFA Socks that Rock Heavyweight in Bleck) is made to fit a 34″ chest, which is quite a bit smaller than I am now (39.25″). But I am as confident that I’ll get there as I am confident that this vest will be finished up before I head back to work on Tuesday. It’s going to happen.
Since numbers tend to give a more complete story than my saying I’m going to fit into something I can’t, here you go:
Total lbs lost in 4.5 months: I haven’t weighed myself in a few days so I can’t say for sure, but it’s at least 60, probably a couple more.
Starting bust measurement: 46.5″ – meaning I’ve lost 7.25″
How much more do I have to go? I’m not sure. I think I’m probably a little over the halfway mark.
What does all this mean? If I can do it, so can you. Really. It’s all diet and exercise. For so long I wanted to make a change in my life, and finally doing it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Even though I still have a long road ahead of me, I can’t begin to tell you how much better I feel. My mental health has improved by leaps and bounds, I have so much more energy, my skin is clearer than it ever before, the list goes on and on.
I promise another update on this in a couple months. And if you have any questions, you can always send me a message on Ravelry (I’m here).
