I'm a tall girl, and had a lot to lose (130-160lbs), so I know that I wasn't going to really notice the changes, but stepping on my scale today I've officially lost 40 lbs (330 to 289.8)... my "goal weight" being set by my doctor being anything from 160-200 lbs. Just looking in the mirror and putting on clothes, I don't feel any different. I had a photoshoot done for a job I'm working when I was 330 and looking at those photos and at me now, I feel like they look about the same. It is sort of discouraging but I know if the numbers on the scale keep going down and I keep counting calories and exercising and building muscle... I'm going to be dropping sizes even though I can't see those incremental changes adding up.
I am on week 4 of couch to 5k so in a fitness level, I do feel different, which is nice... but I still feel tremendously heavy and out of shape.
Does anyone else struggle with a case of the "what's the difference?"
