Your legs look thinner


Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I've been out with my mom the last couple of days and yesterday we got back into talking about our weight loss. The comment from Mom was "I noticed your legs look thinner". Apparently I've been losing enough weight and using my legs enough that I'm finally getting thin legs.

It's one thing for the stomach to skinny up, but to get legs that are becoming shapely instead of fluffy is a big step. I've known that I've lost a few inches around the thighs because I've measured, but to have someone else notice it is a big step!

It's so much harder for me to see the progress because my brain resets every morning to my new normal. I'm glad that I have at least one person cheering me on so loudly.

    I'm grinning from ear to ear as I think about this! How awesome that your mom noticed and commented. I agree- we just don't see it from day to day, and it sure is nice to hear it! Keep up the good work - your efforts continue to pay off in so many ways and I love being a part of your cheering squad!

    Fantastic for someone to make this comment to you!! I don't think we see ourselves as others do. The only measurement I have done is the waist and I have been consistently asked how much more weight have I lost. Well, my answer is none (a yr. long plateau) so finally measured the waist which showed me there is another 2 1/2" gone and I didn't think I had any changes!! You mom gets a WOOHOO!!

    WTG, congrats. So nice when others see the changes that we take in stride each day. We don't always see the non-weight steps in this process.

My legs occasionally surprise me. It's usually when I'm shaving. I'll look down and think, "There should be more thigh than this."

    Yes, nice to have shapely legs. I noticed that on my husband when he lost weight!

Definitely nice to have a cheering section. That's one thing I enjoy about Spark. I have a whole bunch of friends cheering me on.
