2019.04.11 - What?

I was astonished to find that in the last two days I have dropped 1kg (2.2 lb) in weight. After yesterday's remeasuring on the scales I have to believe the figure. That's a cumulative figure of 8 kg (1st 3lb 10oz) in 24 days.

I have also lost 10mm (nearly ½") around my waist in the same time and can confirm that as I had to punch a new hole I the straps on my belt to get it to fit this morning. A cumulative loss of 11 cm (nearly 4½"). That's also the last of the adjustment I can make in this kilt. Any more and this kilt is consigned to the rag bin. Not before time I might add since I use this one a lot when I am out in the workshop and as a result it is covered in blotches of dried wood glue and epoxy.

I did not thrown away a lot of clothes that fit me when I was much thinner so I should soon be able to get those out and start wearing them. Some things will need to be replaced but not until I stop this diet. There's no point in buying new stuff now when I'll not be able to wear it in a few weeks time.

Onwards and upwards!


You know what I mean!
