Feeling it even though I can't really see it
Thursday, November 29, 2012
With 20 pounds down since October most people would think they would be able to see the changes in my body. I told someone not to fret because with my starting point, it's like taking a bucket of water out of the ocean. People have always said they can tell I have been losing weight because my face gets thinner and that has been a life-long source of frustration. I already have a teeny head and a narrow face! Pretty soon I will have no head at all, LOL!!
I know there are more significant changes, hence the daily weigh-ins (they keep me focused too), and the changes that are so cool are the ones I can feel.
My clothes are looser. My legs are thinner. I don't ache after work or when I get up in the morning. I have more energy. And the biggie: I am HOPEFUL and HAPPY!
And you, my dear SP community, have been a huge impetus for that. Reading your stories, taking your challenges, being able to (once in a while) actually help others with what I have learned, has been a huge help.
This blog today is a bit selfish because I'm feeling a bit sluggish. A bit worn out and tired of being so cautious. I needed to remind myself of what I have accomplished, what the rest of you have worked so hard to achieve and where I want to be. If you have stumbled across this page, thank you for being here.
