Week 278 - under 170lbs

1.6lb loss!

This is a bigger loss than expected, but then the thing is always to look at the trend in preference to the individual weeks.

And the trend is, over the past 10 weeks I've lost 9.2lbs. But the main thing is I've been consistently losing something every week for 15 weeks in a row, and that accumulates.

My 34" jeans are no longer tight and my baggy shirts are becoming rather ridiculously large.

At some point I am going to have to go out and buy some clothes that actually fit, rather than drape. But to be honest, I have no idea where to begin.

As I got larger, my clothes choice was dictated by what I could buy that was large enough to fit. And as I've been coming down, other than jeans and underwear, I've carried on wearing the same clothes.

I still haven't really accepted the idea that I can in fact walk into any high street shop now and find clothes that fit. But I've never been a fashionista, so actually have no idea what would suit me.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs  
Current Weight: 12st 1.8lb - 169.8lbs
Body fat: 22%
Total Weight Loss: 105.2lbs

Nothing looks better than a sharp dressed man, fashion be damned. Go make a day of it, try on different things, find what you like and buy a number of them. Enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Ah, well, finances and lack thereof do cause a few restrictions...
