Feeling Slender...

Sunday, March 03, 2013

I'm starting to feel like I might possibly be slender... which is a change as I usually have a heavy self-portrait in my head. I'm surprised to look down and see thighs that don't take up so much space!

An older church member told my husband and me at church today that he'd noticed I'd been losing weight. A girlfriend said that I was just going to disappear soon. (Not a chance, but it's really nice when someone takes the time to say something!)

Last time it took 20 pounds before anyone said a word to me. This time it's closer to 30 pounds gone. I am so glad someone else can see it (and is willing to mention it to me!) I'm within 2 pounds of my goal, and I don't expect people will keep commenting as I maintain, so this was a sweet, non-food treat!

    Congrats on being two pounds away from goal and from people noticing you are losing!
I used to look down at my legs and think they looked thinner also.

    I'm sure people noticed but we're always afraid to say something when we do.

    I had to laugh when I read about looking down and seeing more slender thighs -- that's how I know I'm really losing weight! There's something about a church pew that makes for ideal viewing!
