I feel the same! (most of the time)

Wednesday, April 16, 2008


I've now lost some 23 pounds. And my baggy clothes tell me that's a lot of weight. And I can see it in the mirror somewhat too. And maybe my legs rub together a little less when I walk. But in my day-to-day life, I have to say that my body mostly feels the same to me. Am I just blocking out what it used to feel like to me? Is 23 pounds just not enough? But the feeling about which I speak is not just physical. I largely feel the same mentally, too. I guess I expected a bigger impact on my life. And it raises that little question in my mind of whether I'll even feel substantially different if I reach my goal. I'm going to work harder to track even what appear to be small differences. Like when I was doing yoga today and could feel my groin muscles as I stretched my arms up high and when I could do a couple of poses I've always struggled with. Many small differences together make a big difference.

    Hi Malcontention,
    I was the same way when I started my lifestyle change last year. and I have lost 56 pounds so far and some days I still look in the mirror and feel like my body has not changed. I still see fat and imperfections but I am learning to understand that we are all our on worst critics when it comes to our own bodies. Hang in there things will change.

    Hey cool! 23 for you, 21 for me!
    Go pick up a 25 bag of cat litter and carry it around for a while. Guaranteed you'll say... holy cat crap! I can't believe that was me!
    I saw Nancy A. tonight and she said I looked great... I told her about SP and she's gonna check it out...
    Maybe we'll be S....'s biggest losers!

    But I know what you mean about not feeling THAT different. I am trying to notice the small things. Like I bound out of the car now instead of HEAVING myself out. And I definitely have more energy!
