Back to tough times


Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Last week I went to my book club summer party. I was wearing new slimmer clothes. Feeling great. This was at the house of the woman who pointed out to me that I had gained weight when I was at the top of my weight. (cause you know I hadn't noticed.) She is always beautiful.
Well looked at a picture taken after the party and it looked like I hadn't lost a pound in stead of 26. I felt devastated. My week since has been rough. And I daren't tell my weight loss buddy. She's doing so well, I feel embarrassed.
And next week I go to the doctor for my check up. With only about 5 pounds lost from the last time.
I also think I am sad because I haven't been able to go to aquafit. I will go tomorrow.
Oh here is my grandson coming in the door. NOW I'm not feeling so sad. I think we will go for a swim.

    Thanks so much everyone. I am feeling much better today. Went to aquafit, always a morale booster!

    Keep that head up proudly. The most important person you're losing weight for is YOU! And YOU have much better rulers to confirm your progress than a photo taken by an amateur in poor lighting, without posing, and from a random angle. Photos will ALWAYS be deceiving--some better, some worse.

Remember: a professional photo shoot involves hundreds of photos, from which they pick one or two--and then digitally PhotoShop them, to boot!

    I have to agree that you're probably your harshest critic! I have to say, if you felt better in slimmer clothes, and you KNOW you've been losing weight, I'd just go with that.
**I** am proud of your accomplishment. I know how much work goes into losing each and every pound!

Hang in there.

  Arrrggghhhh!
To YOU it doesn't look like you lost a pound!
You do realize that you're your ONLY critic, right? Those of us who know and love you are celebrating all the VERY NOTICABLE changes.
Your weight loss buddy wouldn't even be losing weight if you hadn't directed her to fitness and got her hooked on aquafit.

Forget the doctor, I'm prescribing something for you. Go to your freezer and find five pounds of meat and carry it around for a few hours and then tell me that you losing five pounds since your last appointment isn't a tremendous accomplishment! You should be as proud of yourself as your family and friends are! :)

    I HAVE LOST 54 POUNDS AND NOT ONE PERSON HAS NOTICED IT. MY DR. COMMENTED ON IT BUT ONLY BECAUSE THEY WEIGH ME THERE. IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING WHEN YOU WORK SO HARD AND NO ONE PAYS ATTENTION TO YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS. I TOOK A BEFORE PICTURE AND POSTED IT HERE. I TOOK ANOTHER AT 50 POUNDS DOWN, WEARING THE SAME CLOTHES AND I LOOKED EXACTLY THE SAME! EXACTLY! WHAT THE HECK?
