I won't reach my goal, but it's ok

Saturday, July 05, 2008

It's July and my goal was to be 165 pounds by the end of this month. I won't make it because I have been stuck at 180 pounds for awhile now. But it's ok. I feel better about myself now than I did in January when I joined Sparkpeople.
I have lost 35 pounds so that is an accomplishment for me. I have also lost 7 inches from my waist and gone down 4 sizes in my clothes. I know I have turned some my fat into muscle which weighs more.
I no longer avoid mirrors and I am not wearing loose clothing to hide in anymore. I even noticed the other day that my shadow looks better than before. I remember looking down at my shadow when I was out walking and it looked like a huge blob. Now I can see curves in my shadow. It may sound strange but I noticed that it looks better so it makes me feel better about myself. Who would have thought that looking at your shadow could make you feel better?

    Your positivity is amazing, congratulations on losing 35lbs. I'm sure you'll reach your target weight soon.
    I had to giggle at your shadow comment, my best friend (who is also my exercise buddy) has noticed her shadow is slimmer and curvier now, it has helped put a spring in her step as well.
