I thought about taking a before picture, but I hate having my picture taken so much I just couldn't do it.
The thing is, Terra, an 18 lb loss makes a big difference, even if you don't see it. Go pick up a bag of cat litter and tell me that isn't a significant amount of weight.
You should be very proud of yourself!! You had to burn 63,000 extra calories to lose that weight!
I'll bet if you'll think back to Jan. you'll remember having a harder time walking or climbing stairs. I'd guess it's easier to tie your shoes and your clothes have to be more comfortable.
I know I felt changes long before I saw them, and sometimes before they registered on the scale.
If you just keep plugging away, one day you'll catch a glimpse of yourself and go " HOLY CRAP I'VE LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT!!! "
Happens when you least expect it.
