New Clothes for Matt

Wow, the summer has flown by. I had no idea it had been a few months since I posted anything here.

Went and bought a couple new pairs of pants today.  Most of my pants don't fit right anymore. I would have been at this point sooner but I had a goofy idea previously that I could keep getting the same size pants but wear them a little lower it was ok. So, for a while I shrunk down so I could wear the pants with the waist at the correct place. The downside to wearing the pants with the waist at the correct place is it makes them an inch or so too short. So today I broke down and bought a new pair of jeans and a pair of chinos. It's a nice feeling to buy smaller pants for the first time ever.

The weight loss has really slowed down. Diet fatigue has kicked in, I'm tired of not drinking beer mostly. Also miss pizza a little. The Myoplex drinks for breakfast I still like, I really think I'm more alert in the AM because of them.

One odd thing about the Myoplex is how Amazon prices them. Since April I have bought around ten 12-packs of the drinks from Amazon using their "Subscribe & Save" plan. The cost for the dozen has varied wildly, from a low of $31 up to as much as $39. The ones I bought this week were $33. To put this in a little perspective, a four pack in a grocery store is $14+tax.

I'd like to get to 150 lbs or so by the time I go to Vegas in December. Mainly so I can go on a major binge while I am there. We already have a reservation for Jaleo, and I'm sure we'll hit Bouchon as well. One of these trips I'm going try the Wynn buffet.

I've had some health (injury) issues which have reduced how much I have been running, but I got the ok last week to exercise all I want. Might run a half marathon in November, depending on how I feel in a month.


Weight 9/12/11: 162.5 lbs

Starting Weight: 181.8 lbs
