This has been a great feat and it will even become a much bigger one by the time I reach my goal at the end of December:) Since I lost another 10 lbs from my comparison picture that I posted here. I'm going to do another comparison pic, so you can see the difference of what 20 lbs lost looks like.
Looking at these comparison pics, really puts things into prospective for me! 20 lbs is quite a big change! I just wish that I took a picture when I was at 197 lbs!
About less than 1 month ago, I searched my closet to see what clothes(my "skinny" clothes) fit me. I knew how much weight I lost according to the scale, but as far as actually visualizing it and being able to give myself FULL credit for what I did was hard; until I started trying on my "skinny" clothes. Now, my "skinny" clothes are a little loose on me and soon will be my "bigger" clothes!
When I put on a pair of pants that fit me a little snug when I was at my biggest and they practically fell off of me, I was brought to tears! Right then was when it clicked for me that I lost that weight and what a change it had made! All of that hard work and continued hard work is definitely being able to be seen. Have any of you been in this same situation, where you don't realize how much you've changed until you try on those dreaded "fat" pants?
It makes me feel much more confident in myself, not only in my looks, but with my job, relationships with hubby, family, and friends:) I know have a NEW outlook on life and it's much more positive! Plus, I have LESS stress and don't worry about the small things anymore:)
My running plan is in full swing and I just ran a little under 2 miles tonight!!! I'm soo pumped and excited about this! I can't believe all of the things that my body can handle now that I've lost this weight. I'm thinking about what else it can handle when I even lose more!
Here's to no longer having to dread wearing my "fat" pants and being more confident in myself!!!
Thanks for stopping by:):):):)
