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.
