Feeling a little impatient...

Friday, July 19, 2013

I want results! I want to look different already! I want people to notice what I've been working so hard to do these past couple months!! Waaaah. I know it takes time, I've lost almost 20% of what I want to lose so it's really not that noticeable yet. But, 15 pounds isn't nothing! I can hardly even notice from my clothes, since they'd gotten so tight anyway.

I know that's vain. I know I'm doing this for more than vanity, but I really am looking forward to people noticing. Ah well. In the meantime, I'm noticing that I'm getting stronger. I'm really noticing when I don't eat well, and feel like crap, that crap food is CRAP!! I'm noticing that I feel best when I can get down a gallon of water per day. I'm noticing the scale go down pretty consistently, anyway. I notice an improvement in my attitude most of the time, which gives me a better outlook on my life in general. I notice when I go to bed at night, I'm happy with what I've done over the course of the day.

With all that, I guess I can enjoy my progress so far, and whenever somebody happens to notice I've changed, that'll be cool too. 2 months in and 15 pounds down is a pretty good start!

Edited to add: Eureka! This is where I get discouraged, thinking I still have so far yet to go.

    its hard for some people to tell you , You good your losing weight
    t. we have become a society where people are often afraid to say your looking good
    are you losing weight? . they are afraid the response might be you thought i was FAT needed to lose weight ?
    that is none of you business
    they could also feel if you can do they should be able to do it as well
    If I were you i would correct the sentence that say I Guess i should enjoy my loss to I am enjoying the weight i am taking off and don;t intend to find it and a pound is a pound it a box of butter

    it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.
    So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."
    I love being around you Happy Days!!!
    After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!
