I have to say that this morning I was so worried because I've been stepping up my exercise regime that I wouldn't see a big loss this week. It didn't matter that I felt strong. It didn't matter that I notice my size 14's! fit way better in my legs, and I can wear my running shorts under them. All that has been taunting me is the numbers on the scale. I am 5 pounds away from that magickal number, that I am afraid I've been a little bit obsessed.
I saw my sister right after my short gym visit this morning (only 30 minutes with my mom), and she took some new photos. I intended to wait for 7 more pounds, but these things happen where these things happen... and can i tell you? What a difference!!!
Here we go.
I think in the 'befores' I had actually lost 10 pounds, so that would make me 238. But it may have been a true before weight watchers photo.. I'll have to ask my mom to see if she remembers which one it is!
And here I am at 205
Do you see that? NO MORE BACK FAT!!!!
Now this is really embarrassing. Keep in mind this is a size 22W skirt. It wasn't "tight" but I could hold it up with my waist. (forgive the mess, my sister was just moving in!)
I know that I've got a slight crease here, but I promise, I was leaning back and slightly twisty for some reason. I'll take other side photos later if you guys wouldn't be sick of them!
I am more mellow about it now. If I don't reach it this week, it's okay. I know that is because I am taking away inches with adding muscle, and that is alright by me. The weight loss WILL be there, and within 2 weeks I should be in the hundreds again.. even if hanging by a thread!
I've been so anxious, so afraid if I don't get there I never will. Well, I WILL get there. This pound loss probably wouldn't show nearly as much if I hadn't been exercising, and that's something I always plan on doing.
So, Alice might need to look down that rabbit hole a bit more before jumping down. If only so her shins wont hurt her so badly afterwards! :)
