Today my tape measure came and I have to say am sickened by the results. Since I don't know anyone here I feel happy putting them down. My inside leg is now what my waist used to be at 29.1 inch! My arms are just over 19inch. My waist is now 44.2inch, my hips 53!!!! and my bust 44inch. So that's that, its done...now for bringing it down.
Yesterday I visited a family member who I shared I had started to lose weight. I explained it was just a few pounds but I am determined to do it. She instantly said omg I thought you had lost weight, I can see it, especially in your face. Now....I don't wish to be mean so I smiled and thanked her but we had been talking for a good hour before I mentioned I had lost weight to get that response and being someone who had 7 stone to lose I don't think you can 'see' anything on a few pounds. Why do people comment on weight loss when they cant see nothing? I mean even my clothes cant tell!
I am a pretty positive person but I actually find it off putting. I was looking forward comments when you can see it as I think its uplifting and encourages you but since visiting my family I have now had my mom on the phone say 'oh I thought you looked different the other day, you have done so well and lost lots' When I told her I hadn't and it was a few pounds she said 'well it doesn't look like it' grrrr what a way to get out of it lol. I think they mean well but me personally, I don't find it helpful.
So not took a photo, I will do that later today. Not to post as I honestly wouldn't want anyone to recognise me but if I cut my head off haha. I will have a before picture.
Hope your all doing well and am looking forward to the weigh in Friday x
