I'm feeling quite good about my weight loss and however long this feeling lasts I thought I'd share. I'm more likely to share my bad feelings so maybe I should get in the habit of sharing the positive. (I have this irrational fear that being positive for a moment will result in something negative happening- but lets not go into my psychological issues).
So I've lost about 7.8 pounds so far, I've been sticking to a calorie controlled diet and exercise when I can it in since April 18th. I started to feel thinner after a while although I didn't look it. Then some time later, in May, my sister pointed out I'd lost weight.
And recently my boyfriend has said.
My stomach is smaller and the dress I couldn't fit into last year when I went on holiday now fits. I also have two dresses (exactly the same cheap summer dress but in a different colour, store 21) I bought (longer ago, maybe two years) that fit but I wouldn't wear because I could see my stomach but I didn't want the next size up as it would be too low and too loose. Now I will happily wear it, I can still see my stomach but it's small or smaller.
I'm trying to focus on what I've achieved even though it was so hard and will continue to be hard to get where I want to be. I'm so happy that I've done this. I remember wanting to lose weight before and I tried by cutting out junk but it never lasted. I never had the willpower to stop eating it and change my habits I wish I had. But now I know that I can do this.
I don't want to be unhappy about my body again. I'm still critical but I am happy with what I've achieved. And I need to keep reminding myself of what I've achieved and focus on the positive.
I wish everyone the best in their journey and remind you to focus on your success however small as every small success counts and is amazing
