Let's keep on keepin' on... on plan, that is

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Back on plan, and it's time to keep on pushing that number on the scale (and those numbers on the measuring tape) down. Official weigh in was 206.6 this morning, and Onderland is so close. I'm pretty happy because it looks like I'll make my goal of Onderland by summertime. Which also means I will be out of the obese range for bmi! Overweight certainly sounds better than obese, and it means I'll be that much closer to healthy.

Now I'm gonna do a mini rant (well not really a rant, more like some mild complaining):

I feel like I've changed so much in my life and my health, I mean, I've lost almost 28 pounds, and my clothes are practically falling off. But sometimes it seems like my hubby is the only one who's noticed, and he has to notice because I talk to him practically every day about my weight loss. Now I know this is maybe a little bit egocentric here, but I really wish some other people would tell me that they've noticed my weight loss/healthy changes (without me telling them I've lost weight beforehand). I know, I know, everybody's so wrapped up in themselves that noticing changes in other people takes something drastic. And I'm no exception to that. But I kind of want someone to confirm that these changes aren't just in my head (and that my hubby isn't just agreeing with me because he doesn't want to upset the crazy wife).

End of mini rant.

I'm not really that concerned about other people noticing yet. As long as I can see the changes, that's what really matters. And my hubby's a pretty fantastic cheerleader for me. Plus I know that soon enough people will have no choice but to notice, because by the time I reach my goal weight it will be a pretty drastic change. But in the mean time I will keep on chugging away, doing my best to make sure that at the very least I, my hubby, and all you great supporters here on SparkPeople, know that I am making progress and changing for the better.

    It's rough. I am 5'9 also, and I have to lose about 40 lbs before it is even noticable. Guess the upside to that is I can "hide" a little bit of extra lbs. Keep on that path:)
