As you can tell by looking at my “November pants” on The Progress, I’ve lost several inches from my waistline. For a while, I was able to use the existing holes in my belt to keep my pants up. The situation has now reached the next level, necessitating modification. My dietitian told me that this is one of the exciting milestones for all men who lose a significant amount of weight, and that I should celebrate.
As we discussed it further, I realized that there really are a lot of benefits to weight loss of this magnitude. I can get around much easier. I can go further without feeling tired. I have more energy to get things done at home and at work. I’m going to live longer.
