Something else to inspire all of you...
I know when you have a lot to lose that sometimes it is overwhelming...Ok drowning! But as each week goes by it seems to get easier and easier.
Suddenly, you can see a light at the end of the tunnel...might be far away but it is there. We all dream of the day where we are not long in a place where we are not happy with ourselves. I have learned over the years at my many attempts at weight loss that you must REALLY REALLY want it in order for it to happen. Before you know it 10, 20, 30...lbs are all gone.
When starting out we get discouraged, frustrated, and sometimes the devil on our other shoulder makes us eat things we are not suppose to (or we eat 10 times as much as we intended). When I started this battle some weeks ago (3 days before Christmas for me) I was 297. This morning I came in at 280....ahh victory. At 290 I took some measurements for those times when I was discouraged or did not think this was working, well here is what in 10lbs...
From 290 to 280 here is what I have lost (besides 10lbs):
Bust line: -1.5"
Mid Section: -1.5"
Belly button: -.5"
Middle Tummy fat roll: -2"
So with this said....10lbs may not be a lot when you have 100 to lose, but it is rather fun to watch it "come off", literally!!!
