We are our own worst critics. Flaws we see in ourselves, no one else sees. Conversely, we ignore positive changes because we don't think we have made a change. The fact is, losing
42 pounds is an enormous accomplishment that you should be proud of achieving !!
Some times, photos don't show changes that are very important. Do you have more energy ? Are you sleeping better ? Can you walk up stairs without getting winded ? Can you carry more bags of groceries without getting tired ? How's your blood pressure ? Are your clothes fitting better ?
let's talk about clothing for a moment. If you're still wearing the same baggy clothes you wore when you were 42 pounds heavier, it's not a wonder you can't see a change. Don't hide your new figure under baggy clothes. Go out and buy some snazzy new duds that flatter your new figure. Nothing shows a change or boots confidence like wearing new flattering clothes !!!
Once you've bought some new clothes, then you take some photos and you'll see the difference.
