I won't reach my goal, but it's ok
Saturday, July 05, 2008
It's July and my goal was to be 165 pounds by the end of this month. I won't make it because I have been stuck at 180 pounds for awhile now. But it's ok. I feel better about myself now than I did in January when I joined Sparkpeople.
I have lost 35 pounds so that is an accomplishment for me. I have also lost 7 inches from my waist and gone down 4 sizes in my clothes. I know I have turned some my fat into muscle which weighs more.
I no longer avoid mirrors and I am not wearing loose clothing to hide in anymore. I even noticed the other day that my shadow looks better than before. I remember looking down at my shadow when I was out walking and it looked like a huge blob. Now I can see curves in my shadow. It may sound strange but I noticed that it looks better so it makes me feel better about myself. Who would have thought that looking at your shadow could make you feel better?
