So far things are moving along okay, I'm between twelve and fifteen pounds lighter depending on which scale I'm using. But I'm running into a few problems.
I now have no pants that fit properly, with the exception of my work pants. Evey pair of jeans I own fits great for a few hours right after washing, and then sags in that unattractive I-see-London-I-see-France sort of way.
2.) Sugar Intolerance.
The more weight I lose, the less my body can handle sugar. I gave in and had The Doughnut Which Shall Not Be Named yesterday, and five minutes later I felt like I'd been beaten by a baseball bat. (This is probably a good thing in general, but it was a pain-in-the-neck at the time)
3.) Mental and Social Fog.
So far the pattern is drop a few pounds, then plateau for a week, then drop a few pounds, then plateau. Which is fine, except every time I'm in the first part, my ability to deal with people or remember things takes a direct hit. So if you ever wonder why you haven't seen me around for a day or two, that's probably the reason.
Anyone else tried to lose a significant amount of weight before? Did these things happen to you?
