Good news! My coat from last year still fits! It is a size 18/20 and thankfully, all of the buttons snap! I was seriously afraid to put it on. I was having visions of it not fitting! Now, it's not a perfect fit and it does kind of split out between my boobs at the buttons
Last October was when I hit my all-time low of 245.0 pounds. That is the lowest that I have ever seen on the scale in my adult life!!!! I have not been on the scale in forever, but I am guessing that I'm somewhere in the 270s or maybe a little more.
I never really know how big I am. I mean, now, in my body today, I feel bigger than I have been, yet I know this is not the case. I'm wearing a size 38C bra that I thought at one time would never fit me and I seriously even considered donating it to Good Will back then.
Today, during my walk, something really sad happened. This has never happened before!!! Usually, when I do feel knee pain (just in the knee that has the wrong angle on it), it's not when I'm up moving around. I usually walk about a mile at least with my dog and today, I literally had to quit mid-way and turn around due to my knee pain. Just a wake-up call that I need to lose this weight sooner than later.
I don't know why I think it's sad. That is victim-mentality. I mean, I had my corrective knee surgery for my knock knees a little too early on the one knee, which left an angle wrong on it.... which will surely lead to arthritis. The last bone doctor I went to, told me that if I really want to help myself, lose some weight.... and I was right around the same weight that I am now when he told me that....
