Whenever I give up a food I really want or am doing an exercise I don't care for, or catch a glimpse in the mirror and can't see a difference, I just keep saying, "it's working, it's working, it's working." My sweet dh says to me, "yes, it is working and I see it. I'm very proud of you." He's so awesome.
I have lost 7 pounds since re-starting on April 12. Now, I didn't think 7 pounds was anything to get overly excited about. (I was excited, I'm just anxious to get back to where I was before regaining the 20 pounds) Well, the first time I did SP and lost the weight, I mostly was just tracking calories. I was doing some exercise, but not daily like now. I never figured out how I lost 35 pounds and was wearing smaller tops, but the same size bottoms.
This time I had my dh measure me before I started. Three weeks later I had dh take new measurements of me
I have lost 1 inch in the widest part of my hip/stomach and 1 inch off my arms, 1/4 inch off the bust and gained a little in my leg. Now, that may not seem like a lot, but on Sunday I was able to wear a size that I haven't seen in YEARS! Now, I know some clothing manufacturers make larger clothes w/smaller sized labels....BUT no matter what brand I tried before (the 35 pounds lost) I NEVER fit in that size in any brand! I was so excited!!
I am really trying hard to be more positive and.....It's working, it's working, it's working!!
I hope everyone else is doing well.
Just believe and be positive.
