"You look like you've lost weight"

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

I love when people notice that I am losing weight and I can confidently reply with "Yes, I am" People are noticing and complimenting me pretty often and it feels so good!!! I forgot what that feels like. I am not really losing weight at a fast pace, but I know its noticable. And even I was noticing a change in my body when I was looking in the mirror.

I am feeling better about myself and my body and working out really does make me feel GOOD! I am starting to feel stronger and like I have more energy. I dont even know why I let myself get to the way I was before. I didnt even feel good about myself before. I felt tired all the time, my body hurt, my insides hurt from being overworked. It just wasnt good.

I am not only working on myself physically but mentally as well. And my relationship with my husband. Like all relationships we have had our ups and downs and I have delveloped some jelous tendancys that I feel put a strain on our relationship and push us away from each other more than bring us together. I think that part of my jelousy stems from my insecurities about myself and my body and how I felt in general about me. Now that I am doing something about how I feel about me, I am also doing something to change myself from the inside as well.

This feels good.

    Girl, I know what you mean about the jealousy thing - and yes, it is just our insecurities. Your man would not have just married you and had a big ol' wedding if he planned to be a player. He loves you for who you are - it's you who wants to get healthier and skinnier. I am really proud of you - you are doing it! And you feel good about it and other people are noticing?? Awesome. I knew it would all click for you and you'd be on your way and here you are. Great job!

    I'm new to Spark People and this is one of the first blogs I've read. I am so encouraged by it and I can relate! Congrats on making it through so much and I hope you keep getting positive feedback! I too have a hubby that I'm always questioning his affections when I don't feel as pretty as the girl he used to date in high school. So dumb- he married ME! I shouldn't worry- but I totally do. I think it's natural, normal...and almost empowering. It makes you want to do something about it! And here we are! If you ever need any encouragement I'd love to be one of your buddies! Good luck and great job so far!
