Two Months In

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

It's been almost 2 months since I began my journey. I'm feeling pretty good about myself, although I know I still have a long way to go. I'm one pound away from hitting 20 pounds gone and yet I feel like no one notices my weight loss. I know this is mainly for me and for my health but it would be nice for someone who doesn't neccessarily know I'm dieting to say "Hey! You look great- have you lost weight?" I know it takes awhile for other people to notice, especially people who don't know you that well or see you that often (co-workers, friends, etc.) I guess some days I just get bummed that I feel like I've done so much and lost almost 20 pounds and no one can tell. I'm not trying to complain but I just needed to vent. Sometimes I feel like I don't have any kind of support system outside of my parents and my husband. And believe me, I couldn't do this without them. But it'd be nice to hear some words of encouragement from others as well, that's all...

    congratulations! I am right there with you, but when someone DID notice, it took the form of "Wow! You lost all that weight!". which makes Me feel like the excess weight was the most noticeable thing about me - I would have rather that she didn't notice.

So, you're doing fabulously and you're doing it for yourself. And I'm going to stick with "You look great!" in future, myself.

And Happy Birthday!
