It was a big moment this morning in our bathroom. So big, that my husband had to double check the scale for me. (I'm short sighted and we have a manual scale, and I struggle to read the lines in between the numbers!) But, after his assurances, I think I can safely say that I reached 65kg today (about 145 pounds).
Now, my greatest excitement in all this was that I could change my profile picture to say 'lost ten pounds/ 5kg' - is that pathetic?? Such a small motivation, but obviously sparkpeople know exactly what little things might motivate a person a little more.
For the first time in my life weight seems to be falling off - usually a diet is a nightmare of not losing, frequently gaining and generally going to war with the scale.I can only attribute this to the fact that I am making sure my calories fall into the correct range, and making some sort of effort to exercise, reading a lot of blogs (incredibly motivitating) and articles, and getting some great support from sparkfriends and my husband! Or it could be that my body and mind was just ready.
I don't see a noticeable difference in the way I look, but feel so much stronger physically and much more comfortable inside my own skin. My clothes are a little less tight, but really just more comfortable to wear.
So very happy today.
