I'm curious to see how my weight loss compares with other people's. When I first started walking long distances, my appetite majorly dropped. I could go for a four hour hike and not eat much later that day because I simply wasn't very hungry. Then, I switched to more cardiovascular exercise, and my appetite became huge! I would try to satisfy it with lower calorie foods, go back for seconds on veggies, that sort of thing, but I just felt so hungry all the time! I would eat a large meal and still feel a bit hungry afterwards. I was never stuffed. During this time, my weight stayed the same and yet I continued to lose inches around the waist. Now, for the past two weeks, my appetite has stabilized, I can eat smaller amounts of food and feel fine -- well, mostly. I just had a large plate of spaghetti with a tomato, basil and salmon sauce, still feel a bit hungry, and so I'm eating fresh pineapple for a dessert before I go out for my exercise. The weather is gorgeous outside, it beckons.
I'm also constantly looking at how I'm losing the fat, where the fat is coming off and what my new shape is. I hope to gain a bubble butt.
I think that I have the potential to be beautiful and statuesque in an amazon sort of way, I just have to continue climbing out of the fat suit.
