I'm still way off from my ultimate goal, but I've lost a healthy 42 lbs in 15 weeks since I started weight watchers.
I'm not complaining about that AT ALL. I know the importance of gradual weight loss, and making lifestyle changes to ensure it's permanent.
What I'm dealing with is more of an internal view that won't let me see myself any smaller than when i first started. I know i am - my scale, measuring tape, and warddrobe are evidence of this - but when I look at myself in the mirror, i see the same old tubby me (for a reference, i started out around a size 20 or 22, now i'm wearing a 16/17/18 depending on the store/brand).
Does anyone else deal with this issue? You'd think i would enjoy trying on clothes more now, but it's the opposite - it makes me feel even worse! I don't know why i'm feeling this way lately. 42 lbs just sounds SO drastic in my head, and i guess i just don't feel like it's reflecting back in the mirror.
Oh well. Maybe it will take a few more months for me to start to feel good. I'm certainly not on the verge of giving up or anything, i just, eh, want to start seeing myself the way everyone else is (i'm getting compliments/comments left and right from friends, coworkers, etc.). *sigh*
