We have now the BEST climate today–it appears like an ideal fall day. I actually hope that we’ve got numerous days like this over the subsequent few months.
I haven’t got lots to say about my Wednesday Weigh-In, however I first have to put in writing about my hoodie (within the above picture). I LOVE IT.
I sorted by my garments whereas the facility was out, as a result of there was nothing else to do, pulling apart garments that have been both too large or that I simply did not need anymore. I favored this orange hoodie, however I did not just like the Below Armour brand on the chest.
|This pic was from December, after we have been nonetheless transforming the lavatory.
The emblem was sewn on, so I eliminated the stitching–but you might nonetheless see the little sq. the place it was once.
I additionally got here throughout some pajama bottoms that I actually liked, however they did not match well–the waist was too large and the calves have been tight. I made a decision to carry onto them and see if I might use the material on one thing else.
I believed the legs would make cool sleeves for one more shirt. Then I remembered the orange hoodie and the 2 appeared like they belonged collectively!
|You’ll be able to see the place I eliminated the Below Armour logo–so I knew I would need to cowl it.
I set to work ripping the seams–I eliminated the sleeves from the hoodie, then used these as a sample to chop the brand new sleeves out of the pajama legs. Then I sewed the brand new sleeves on.
I nonetheless had the issue of the spot the place the brand was, and I wasn’t positive the best way to cowl it. After toying with concepts, I selected to chop out a coronary heart from the rest of the pajama pants and stitch it on utilizing a blanket sew (which I’ve gotten significantly better at).
Once I tried it on, I made a decision it should have thumb holes–I really like thumb holes! So I eliminated the cuffs, added thumb holes (I hate making cuffs with thumbholes–those take longer than stitching the sleeves on). Once I was completed reattaching the cuffs, I used to be so excited with the way it appeared:
Here’s a earlier than and after:
It’s my most favourite merchandise of clothes I’ve ever altered! And it is most likely probably the most cozy hoodie I personal.
Okay, sufficient about that. As for my weigh-in:
I used to be at 129.4, which is down from 129.8 final week. The week was every kind of screwed up due to not having any electrical energy for 4 days. It is onerous to recollect what I ate–I had a number of watermelon, grapes, and toast (toasted on the range). I’d simply made some seitan the night time earlier than the facility went out, so I ate that (understanding it could go unhealthy). I had some vegan “buffalo wings” within the freezer that I hated to throw away, so I ate these one night time for dinner. I did not run in any respect, however with the entire storms and flooding, it was the very last thing on my thoughts.
Whereas going although my garments, I acquired actually anxious about my weight. I do not know whether or not to maintain my garments which might be too large. Judging by my historical past, I am going to seemingly achieve weight after which want I nonetheless had them. But when I handle to maintain my weight round 130, I can lastly have a wardrobe that I haven’t got to interchange time and again. If I maintain onto the garments, I really feel prefer it’s simply planning to fail.
I believe I am going to put them within the storage for now, and maintain onto them for a a 12 months or so. I actually hope I will not have to drag them again out, however I’ve altered so lots of them to suit me effectively (on the dimension I used to be 10-15 kilos in the past). My weight goes up and down a lot. Once I was over 200 kilos, gaining or shedding 10 kilos did not make any distinction in my garments. At this weight, nevertheless, even 5 kilos makes an enormous distinction.
There’s a line someplace between 125 and 132-ish that makes me go up a dimension in garments. After which at 140, I am going to go up one other dimension. Proper now, my garments are comfy–I’ve room to breathe and I do not really feel like I can not bend over, haha. I like my garments, and there are not any in my closet which might be too small. It might be very nice if it might keep this fashion!
