Default Its finally starting to happen...

My head is finally catching up to my body!
I've noticed a few times actually seeing my new body.
At the gym I was trying out a new machine and I caught a glimpse of myself at a new angle and I honestly thought someone was dressed like me until I realized "oh wait...that is me...okayyyy!"
I was sitting in class yesterday and glanced over at the floor to ceiling window next to me and saw a seemingly "tiny" person sitting in the chair. This image distracted me the rest of the class.
I also have been realizing how I look kinda funny in my bigger clothes. I've only really begun to rebuild my wardrobe so i'm still wearing some of the smaller of my "fat" clothes and they hang off of me like i'm a clothes hanger lol

I just had to share with you ladies because I thought it would never happen!

People that cause you pain are like sandpaper...they may scratch you & hurt you but you'll come out smooth and polished.
Refresh your attitude, change your mind...life turns out the way you believe it will.

You have to dream hard, wish big and chase after your goals because no one is going to do it for you.
Self-belief is a woman's best accessory.
In case no one told you today..You are beautiful. You are special. You are loved.

At my gym, there's this mirror that's really poorly placed and on one particular machine the joint between the two mirrors actually doubles you! I hate that machine! But lately I've noticed even me doubled isn't all that bad! LOL! Now that's progress!

Good for you! It is nice when the head catches up.

I have quite a few clothes that are getting baggy too. And I have slowly begun throwing them out.
And I finally had one person notice my weight loss yesterday.

Best of luck to you!
