I did a load of laundry last night, and when taking everything out of the dryer, I came across a t-shirt that I must have worn sometime in the not too distant past. When I held it up, I couldn't believe it. This was a Mickey Mouse t-shirt that had always been a little tight, and it was huge! Sure, I know I've lost a _ton_ of weight and am only a fraction of my former self, but it still hits home when you see something like this. And, when hanging everything up, I realized that while I've gotten rid of a ton of other stuff, I haven't done so with my t-shirts. I don't wear t-shirts very often, but sometimes you just want one, right? And, while I have 2 new ones that fit rather, ahem, well, I don't want to get rid of my old ones. They're t-shirts that I got in college, at special places and on vacations, etc. So, I don't want to get rid of them, you know? I guess I'll keep them around for the memories, and if I find myself really desperate for a bumming around the house shirt, I'll have a bunch ready.
Oh, and I came to a realization the other night. I am only 11 pounds from being in the "normal" BMI range!! My BMI today is 26.7 which is down from 44.9 at surgery. Ah-maze-ing! I may have frustrations with this whole process at times, but this is just too cool!!!
