Fatty Patty

Well, in order to save you all, I haven't done a weight loss post lately. Honestly, with my birthday and mother's day, I was completely in a stall. But, after the kidney stones I decided it was time to get back on the eating consciously wagon. I have finally broken the 180 barrier (with clothes on, even -- one time I did break it, but I had to do it naked). It feels so good to check the scales each morning. No, I don't lose every day but I'm not gaining and I do lose most days (when I eat properly). I also feel like this is something I can keep doing forever. Even when I was in my stall I wasn't gaining weight, which is important. I don't want to go back to where I was. Except for the day I actually had the kidney stone. I gained SEVEN pounds that day at the hospital. Can you believe that? It's all the water they pumped in me -- but still. Wow.

So, I started keeping track of inches and weight (I was weighing for about 2 years before this -- but once I was steadily losing weight I thought I'd keep track of the inches too). So, in those 2.5 months I've lost 10 pounds and about 5 inches. I mean, that's not enough to get me on Oprah but I do feel proud. Since I started the whole weight loss thing I've lost almost 32 pounds...

Of course, I feel entirely sheepish when people get so excited about how much weight I've lost. First off, despite my urning to be a Broadway star I am not a huge fan of attention being leaped upon me. Secondly, I feel embarrassed that I ever WAS as big as I was. But, people are noticing. They all ask what I'm doing. It's hard to say "I'm just eating appropriately" Because, hey -- shouldn't I have been doing that all along? But, when I tell them the specifics almost EVERYONE gets it. They wish they'd figure out how to do that too. Anyway, that's my big update. Go me.


  1. I think you should do another post on "eating appropriately" so that we can all figure it out.

  2. Yes, please.............

  3. Hilary, I think you rock. For me eating "correctly" is the hardest challenge. I applaud you sincerely for doing it and seeing results!
