Hello, my blogosphere friends!
This is just a quick post; I don’t have much to say, really…
It’s just that, today–for the first time throughout this journey–I was actually able to see my weight loss.
I have lost 20.6 lbs. so far, and I had heard many, many times before that 20 lbs. would be noticeable. Everyone claims that every 10 lbs. lost is one dress size, but I guess clothes just don’t fit my body that way. Are my clothes looser? Yes, absolutely. But is it time to buy the next size smaller? I don’t think so. After losing 20.6 lbs., my clothes aren’t falling off of me. My jeans are a little baggy in the back, and my bras aren’t fitting quite right anymore, but 20 lbs. lost just hasn’t made such a drastic difference that I could actually physically see it.
Until today, that is.
Earlier, I was lying on my bed with my feet propped up against the headboard. I was talking on the phone with one of my girlfriends, and I was tuning out just a little bit while she was going on and on about something. Suddenly, I found myself looking at my thighs.
Before I started this journey, I absolutely, positively hated my thighs. My thighs were basically 100% cellulite and they were horribly shaped. As I looked at them today, though–I mean really looked at them–I noticed that they are smaller than they once were! There is not nearly as much wiggle jiggle going on these days! To be honest, they’re looking pretty good!
I haven’t been measuring myself, but I’m starting to think I really should be doing that because I might be able to see even more drastic results there.
The first time you can physically see weight loss is so, so exciting.
And that’s why I wanted to share with you guys tonight.
Today is a good day!
