Right now? I feel like I'm on a roll.
It's tiny little things, that all added up, just make me feel like I'm really gaining ground and losing pounds.
My morning workout buddy is injured, so I didn't go to the gym this morning, telling myself I'd go this evening instead. Of course, I then got off work and was REALLY not feeling it. Instead of giving in, I called another sometimes workout buddy, but she couldn't go. Then I called my parents and invited them to come as my guests! I knew I wouldn't make it without someone else tonight, but instead of just quietly flaking out, I reached out for help! I'm feeling pretty proud of that.
I'm also starting to actually physically feel differences in my body. I sometimes catching myself sort of pinching/poking at my love handle area, just because it feels so soft and deflated compared to how it used to feel. I find myself wondering what my body will feel like another 20 or 30 or 40 pounds from now, and I sort of feel like I'm beginning to be able to tell!
Maybe most fun of all, I finally took another progress picture. I don't know why I hadn't in a while, but I've lost about 20 pounds since the last one. I've still got a long way to go, but it's fun to see some of the little change I would miss otherwise!
The first one in this series was after I'd lost about 15 pounds. The second was about 25 or so pounds down, once I'd finally started losing again after my stall. The last one is tonight before I went to the gym... sorry for the goofy face I'm making (and the bathroom sink in the pics)!
Can you guys tell a difference? Regardless, I sure feel one! And the feeling of momentum is pretty fantastic!
