Recent Diet Study

I thought this was really interesting...

I realize I haven't posted in a while. Things are going well.

So as many of you know I made it through the vacation triumphantly. I was able to maintain my weight without going to the gym and allowing myself some treats. I thought that was pretty fucking awesome.

I mentioned in October that one of the milestones I was looking forward to was fitting comfortably in an airline seat. In the past I could just barely fit the seat belt around me. During this trip I was able to fit it and still have about 2 inches, but I don't know if I could say that I fit comfortably, but it was still nice.

I also ruthlessly went through my closet. I got rid of my current summer clothes, (which I decided to keep through the vacation). I also got rid of all of my 3x clothes. I will never need them again - there is no going back!

Although I am trying to be positive, it is still slightly discouraging to have lost 50+ pounds and still be so obese. Sometimes it seems impossible, but I'm not going to give up. I don't know what characteristic is more valuable in losing weight - willpower or patience. 

But, back to being positive, I am halfway though this cycle. If I keep up this way I will lose the 10% weeks ahead of schedule. I also thinks that's fucking awesome and should stop complaining.
