I blogged last Wednesday about my week 4 weight loss; but I am a visual person. While I can not tell the difference in the mirror, or even in the photos, I wanted something to see, so Kayla helped me by taking a picture for me this morning.
I am wearing the same outfit that I wore at Easter of 2010.
I was not even at my biggest then, but it was the most recent picture I had.
Today (Sunday , 4 days after my 4 week weigh in)
No, I’m not pregnant! I know, it’s bad. And I wasn’t even going to post the one with the britches pulled away; but this is for me as well for anybody else that is out there and reading this and struggling with weight loss. If I can’t be real to myself, then who can I be real with? Right?!
The pictures aren’t the greatest, they were taken with my phone. Again, I can’t see the difference right now, but in another 15 pounds I will take another picture. Now that the first month is over, I’m sure it will drop to about 2 lbs a week, maybe even a pound … we’ll see.
I still haven’t started exercising yet. I know it is much better for me; I know I will feel better once I get started; right now I just can’t deal with it. Right now, I’m dealing with the eating and gorging and getting to the root of what has taken me from alcohol & drugs to food. One step at a time, sometimes one meal or snack at a time. And I’m OK with that. :)
