I can feel the differences already

Saturday, July 28, 2007

I am down 7.5 pounds and I can feel it, in all these different ways:

- my bras fit better
- all my trousers are looser, in both waist and hip
- my belt is officially too big; I need two more holes punched in it
- I don't get winded going up two flights of stairs at work
- I don't have to slow down or stop partway up on those two flights
- I have more energy

I told my boss (who is also losing weight), and she gave me a stack of books to heft. "That's about seven pounds!" When you see it like that? Wow, impressive.

I just got a great visual: a diminishing me, beside things that weigh the same as the weight I have lost. First, a stack of books; a sack of flour; a medium-size dog... wow.

    I LOVE that visual - a stack of things that equal what you've lost. I've got to go add that to my visual diary and collage. Thanks!
