I kind of felt that way too. I had a bilateral mastectomy, and I do not wear my prosthetics while I am working out. This means that instead of people seeing my boobs bounce...they see my belly...oh well...my belly is now smaller. Today a woman asked me if I was an athlete!!! Made my day.
Keep up the good work.
I am not the hare. I am the tortoise. I will win my race slowly and steadily, one bite, one step at a time.
That was true of me too! I STILL sometimes feel like people are looking at me funny, but then I just push myself harder. So they can keep looking. It only makes me burn more calories! =)
MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs
5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!
If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!
FOOD TASTES GOOD
Let us eat it in moderation.
& . That is great! Keep up the good work!
...but thanks to all your encouragement and my drive to embrace a healthier lifestyle, thats not a problem anymore. I go at least three times a week. I have discovered really helpful friendly people at my gym. I've even had a discussion about nutrition with one of the employees and I didn't feel like a putz. In fact, he thanked me for telling him about Sparkpeople.
So thanks to all of you for your help...and if you know someone who was embarassed as I was, just keep encouraging them!
All who wander are not lost.
