A question

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

the bottom third of the garden.. covered in snow. Bird food....... Keiko having a mad running spree.... looking for her ball........ Spider art.
These were the pictures i managed to capture on my phone whilst having a mad half hour with Keiko in the snow. She hates it if it is snowing ( can not stand her fur getting wet) but loves it afterwards , if there is snow to play in.
I am hoping that i managed to burn a few calories up, throwing her ball back and forward for her.. ( it certainly raised my tempreture whislt i was walking about, ) I had the nicest compliment today as well from my partner saying that he could see where i have lost weight on my waist... ( i still see the big me that i was before) Which leads me to a question of the day. Is it normal not to see yourself as losing weight and think that you are still the size that you were. ( Now i am sounding like a real dippy doughnut, but hey the only silly question is an unasked one, and as we are all on here for the same reason i thought i would ask. )
Have a good day all emoticon

    beautiful photos
It does take a while for the self image and the mirror image to come in line with each other. For me, I know my body is changing, but I like my clothes with a certain fit and feel- as the weight has come off, the sizes have dropped, but I don;'t see it (size 24 down to 16 in pants, I should see something) When the family gathered at Christmas I was jolted into reality by comments from my 4 sisters-in -law- they couldn't believe how much progress I have made. I guess living by the mantra "healthy choices = no regrets" has paid off because there is a real physical difference that has come from being consistant

So glad for you that your partner is helping you see the real emerging you

    First, great photo's.

That said, I think it is pretty normal to NOT see the changes we are making. Many of us have an image of who we are ingrained in our mind. It is hard to give that up.

    Nice photos, Keiko is just lovely, and it does look like there is some fun going on!
Good for you in losing weight that Kenzie can tell!! emoticon emoticon
Keep it up - you'll see it yourself, it takes time because you've seen yourself one way for so long. I now measure my progress by my clothes. If they are loose or I'm in a new size I know I've lost otherwise I would drive myself crazy looking in the mirror to see if there is a difference!

    Oh my . . . you are definitely not a dippy doughnut! It IS something many experience -- losing weight, even a significant amt. -- but still seeing the "old YOU" in the mirror. It takes time for the brain to catch up, so to speak, but the important thing is to remind yourself that you ARE healthier, you DO look better, you are NOT that "old you" that you used to see in the mirror.

HUGS and hope that allays your fears. I know I went thru that. You know, it's all about the negativity we feed ourselves sometimes. Kick it out. Kick it to the curb.
