Today I saw, for the briefest blip of a second, the 1 on my scale as I weighed in and then it disappeared. Woo-hoo! I'll see it again soon I'm sure. My eating hasn't been the greatest, and today I started feeling like I have a cold. So kind of a yucky day!
I decided to take a rest day, and I was careful not to eat too much. My appetite kind of wasn't there anyway. So for the healthful choices, today was pretty good!
I'm happy it feels important to keep making the choice to track and workout, and keep on seeing progress. I want to keep going, and the reasons to eat too much food are so stupid! Pretty much every time. Getting stronger and seeing the changes in my body is worth the work, and "willpower."
While I have been feeling like I'm making lots of progress, seeing pictures of myself still kind of surprise me that I am so big, I sure don't look as different as I feel! Makes me a little sad. Makes me want to push on though.

    Emily! Keep pushing through, you are doing great, even if you don't think pictures show it. I know that I have felt the same way on that front and I think we're just our worst critic. I think you said a while ago that your brother had noticed your progress... hang on to that. If other people are noticing changes are happening and it's just our minds playing tricks on us. Keep up the good work and I can't wait to hear when you hit the onelander!

Rest days are very important! Keep pushing your view of yourself is different than what other people see, I am the same way
