Six Pounds Down and People Notice?

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Since I restarted Spark I have lost six pounds. I probably lost another 4 before that, when I came back from Christmas break just disgusted and finally ready to make a commitment to myself. So I have lost 10 pounds probably total, since January. Which would be a lot if I had 20-30 pounds to lose, but when the goal is 140, 10 pounds is a pretty small start.

Today however, people have noticed. Two people randomly made comments about how I looked thinner.

This is me the first day back at school in January.

And this is me 10 minutes ago.

I think I might be short a chin in the second one.

    Yes, I can see a difference. You are doing great! Keep it up. It seems once you get started and lose the first few pounds it is easier to stay on track. Congratulations.

    I definitely notice a difference! "They" say that weight comes off top-to-bottom, so it would make sense that you would start noticing it in your face.

    You can definitely tell in your face that you have lost weight! Sometimes we don't notice when we look in the mirror each day, but photos do help. Congratulations! Keep up the hard work!
