Day 24 Still going and seeing changes

Thursday, July 10, 2014

24 days ago I was back to 248. I was not happy about it but I had accepted it as my starting weight.

what have I been doing since? Simple... eat less. I make sure I get enough veggies in my system. Raw veggies mostly. I bring my lunch at work wich normaly consists of 2 snacks and 1 meal. Snacks are usually yogurt & raw veggies. Lunch is some protein (chicken, ham, eggs, whatever is on hand at home) and raw veggies. Then, for dinner the rule is 1 plate only and desert no more than twice a week.

It seems to be working. in 24 days I went from 248 to 237.6. That feels great!

the other thing that feels great is that I can actually see the changes.not only because my belt got too big and I had to make another hole, but I can actually look in the mirror and see where it has come off.

Funny how I never before noticed this when I was losing weight. Even when I went down to 227, I couldn't actually see the differences. I felt it, got into smaller clothes, but what I was seeing in the mirror was a fat woman. Always a fat woman. I couldn't see the changes.

So I am happy to report that I can see my belly is going down, I have lost quite a bit of my love handles. I am getting closer to getting the body I want to fit the new pair I'll get this fall. My objective is to be 200 by November 26th and here is how it is going :

So many things have changed in my head. I think that is why it is going well. Hopefully I'll keep that frame of mind for a long time!

    Ohhh! This is AWESOME! I actually don't see the changes either. I think it has to do with accepting that.. well.. we are fat. There's no denying it but seeing our body changing and getting fitter, well, that seems to be a challenge. It kinda feel that whatever you are doing, it's never enough. So I think that seeing the changes has a lot to do with the mindset. So CONGRATS on being able to see it =)
    Keep going, you're so, so worth it!
