I just did my monthly measurements, and for the first time in over a year, there was NO change in my measurements from last month. My weight is right now the same as last week, but that’s 4 pounds less than it was last month. SO…it’s not like my weight hasn’t changed at ALL, just not very much lately. I am still trying hard. I am still putting in the effort, but my body hasn’t showed it lately. BUT in good news, I saw a friend that I hadn’t seen in a long time at the store the other day and they asked me how much weight I had lost. They said they could tell I had lost a lot cause they hadn’t seen me in awhile. And…another friend(oddly enough related to the other friend) LOL. said I was looking skinny lately. Although, I find it hard to believe I look anywhere near skinny YET, it makes me feel good when people are actually noticing the change. Believe it or not, it seems to be rare and far between when people seem to notice. 😦
People noticing gives me inspiration moving forward. I have come SO far, and I am a heck of a lot more healthier today than I was last year. I’m not sure how long this stalemate is going to last, but just know, I haven’t given up, I AM still working hard, and I will NEVER give up! 🙂 I have come too far to turn back now…and I have been in this place before, given up, gained the weight back x10, and been in the place where I looked back and realized, “Hey, I would have much rather been back there and stuck for the rest of my life than where I am now!’ So having THAT perspective, I refuse to let myself be back in that place and wishing I had not given up.
