I keep looking in the mirror thinking, "can you really tell a difference?" I guess the answer is yes. I don't know what I expect to see when I look but I thought that maybe I would have less rolls and a less wavy physique. On Sunday I went out to eat with dad and my hubby. My dad is aware of my new lifestyle which resembles his and is very proud of me. He was not aware however of how much weight I have lost. He said to me "You look really good punkins! How much have you lost so far?" I was shocked that he could tell. "You can really tell?" I asked. "Yes, you can!" I was blown away.
Yesterday I went to a social gathering at church and was socializing with some of the people that were praying for my job searching. One of the people I wanted to see is a 6'5", 60 year old, man that resembles Abraham Lincoln. We call him Abe. I look up to him, not just because I have no choice but also because he is such a hard working, loving, husband, father, farmer, and person. He also mentioned how thin I looked without knowing I was working on a new lifestyle. I was pleased.
The more I work and the looser my pants get the more I expect to see. I am now more comfortable in my own skin but I also know that if I keep working hard, I will get to where I'm going.
Just taking things one day at a time and not getting discouraged at the lack of what I see and not how I feel, I will get to a good happy place. So can you!
One day at a time!
