Okay, I know someone posted on this a while ago but...i think i just need to vent...very frustrated.
Ive done so well w my southbeach lifestyle and workout routine. I am down 34 pounds (currently at 228). I have a ways to go but its fine, im getting there slowly and surely and feel great. Ive bought new jeans and some nice new clothes and i have a waist..yes a waist! Who would have thought...but
This is the second time i ran into someone that i havent seen in a while and like i expected some big response. The weird thing was that both times they were looking me up and down but not a word! I just couldnt help but think maybe they think i look fatter or something! Stupid, because its not what the scale said but its just my head stuck in that mode. Then i thought well ,maybe they think i have some disease and im losing weight quick and they dont want to say anything. I know i shouldnt be bothered by it but it does. Its like such hard work goes into it and it would be nice for someone to say "hey you are looking great" for a change
(well my hubby does and my 18 year old son do). But you know what i mean.
Then i asked a friend of mine who i see a couple of times a week. He has been working out with me. And he asked me the other day how much i lost..i told him and he was wow, thats great. I asked him "cant you tell by looking at me" and he said .... well, its hard, i see you all the time. If i didnt see yo ufor a while i would notice. OMG I could have cracked him in the head.
Does this happen to any of you? The only thing i could think of is 228 is still very heavy ...had i been starting at 150 and lost 34 pounds yo uwould have definitely seen the difference.
