Comparison Photos

Thursday, March 28, 2019

I'm always trying to find some positive energy to keep my motivated. Today I looked at pictures of me from when I started in January. I compared it to my photos from the other day in front of one of my favorite murals in Detroit. Even though I've only lost 11 pounds I think I can see a difference. This keeps me motivated to continue my exercising and eating right. Its good to step back and take a look at yourself. You may think that it the weight is coming off so slow, the progress is so slow. The reality is its coming off and I am feeling better.

    Wow.....it sure shows weight loss! emoticon

    I notice all sorts of things besides comparing photos.....
    A piece of clothes in my closet now fits better....
    I can wrap a particular towel around me without it gapping and showing all my *rolls* ( lol)
    My hubby can now actually *wrap* his arms around me....
    I actually have defined * boobs*
    I can see my belly button when I look down....( ok ok....it is on a belly roll but I can still see it if I lift the belly roll....LOL )

    I try to take notice of all the *little* things like these so that if the scales do not move on a weigh in ( or go up some ) I am not all discouraged and throwing in the towel......
    And I try to notice things like .....I am not looking at eating certain foods that were not healthy like I did before....
    It all helps to keep me on track!

    I found that sometimes I lose inches even when the pounds are slowly coming off. You look like you are doing just fine!
