Weight Loss Changes
I had a strange experience today. I was walking towards a glass window when I saw someone dressed just like me.
Only they were alot thinner.
As I approached this stranger, about to compliment them on how well they were dressed, it dawned on me:
I didn’t even recognize myself.
After I got over feeling really really dumb, I got to thinking about the changes I’ve been noticing here and there lately. Just little things. Since I started work, after I dropped the 5 pounds of water, I gained 10. I made up my mind not to panic, and didn’t really, but always there is a niggling thought: what am I doing wrong? When I know the only change I’ve made is increased movement. Lots of increased movement between work and the swimming – which we try to do at least 4 days a week. I also know I need to eat more. Gotta have fuel for the fire. I know my body is changing.
Indeed it is.
I got on the scale this morning, and registered 2 more pounds lost, making a total of 62 pounds. I put on a pair of pants today, that just over three weeks ago, fit perfectly. They are now baggy. In the right places. I can turn to the side and note a good half of my stomach is gone. It’s time to start looking for new shirts, because the ones I currently have are – dare I say it – becoming huge on me?
I noticed some biceps today as well. Nothing major, but what has been hidden for years is beginning to make an appearance. Enough for me to notice. And, my once really really big butt is not quite so big. I can sit in a chair now and not worry I’ll break it, and there’s room in that chair I can park my not as big butt in.
Ah, the wonders of losing weight.
I’m highly encouraged. In the next week or so, I plan on digging out my weights. I’m cutting my hair, which I wanted so bad to be long, I’ve decided I can no longer live another day with it long and will make it easier to workout with weights.
