Anyone else having this problem first starting out on their diets?
I'd first like to say congratulations on the 22 lb loss-you should be EXTREMELY proud! I think it's really hard to look at ourselves and see our own weight loss-go figure! You don't mind me asking but what do you feel looks worse in your after picture? Did you take a before picture and comparing side by side or did you just take a pic of yourself and maybe being too critical of yourself?
Way back when I was much slimmer and during that particular weigh loss journey as my weight went down I went through some "odd" stages-see I tend to lose in my bust first then my calves so I kind of had a small bust, wider belly and hips, then skinny legs! Oh, I'll poke some more fun at myself because I lose in my face quickly too and went through a "tiny head" stage and belive me my head normally does not look tiny so that was an interesting stage!!!!! I just took it all in stride enjoying the fact that the numbers were coming down and the clothes were getting looser.
Please don't get discouraged. You are doing great and I'm sure you don't look worse. Focus on the positive!!!!! Dry those tears and keep your head up high!!!!
