10 Things Thursday

Ten things!

  1. As of today, I have lost 80 pounds--exactly half-way to my preliminary goal of 175 pounds!
  2. I have lost 7 inches from my chest.
  3. I have lost 8 inches from my hips.
  4. I have lost 10 inches from my waist.
  5. Walking on the treadmill this evening, I spontaneously walked to two songs without holding on.  (This is a big deal.  I have arthritis in my hips, and usually have to steady myself by holding the sides of the treadmill.)
  6. I bent over to tie my shoe.  (Just once. Just one shoe. Not sure I could repeat this consistently yet.)
  7. I have to wash clothes twice a week because I run out of work pants before I run out of week.
  8. There are about 5 full kitchen-trash-can-size bags of clothes that need to go to the thrift store.
  9. I need to get some clothes from the thrift store.  I am thinking pants with belt loops.  Otherwise my pants might fall down when I have to lean over to pick up my white board marker (which I'm always dropping) during class.
  10. I asked my partner to take new photos of me today, because I haven't taken any since before my surgery.  Of course, we did it right after I was done exercising (because the previous pics were in the same location--standing on our treadmill).  I was sweaty and my hair was all fuzzy.  However, here's the comparison below if you want to see.  :-O
October 2012 vs. February 2013:
