I thought I might get tired of hearing people tell me I look good and I've lost weight, but I got to say, I really haven't. I don't always like it when the attention is on me, but it does feel good to have my weight loss being noticed. I have spent so much time (years...) being self-conscious and unhappy with how I looked so it is nice to actually feel good about myself now. I still have a ways to go to get to my goal, but I can say that I am actually happy with how I look right now.
By the way, I'm really not vain, I promise! My mom is the one who usually notices things like when certain clothes get baggy and will tell me that I look smaller and I love hearing it. Especially because it just reminds me that all my efforts and actions (which are not always easy!) are actually making a noticeable difference!
Of course I notice when my clothes fit different, but in general sometimes I don't see that I am losing when I look in the mirror on a week to week basis. I really wish I had started taking measurements from the beginning or kept a pair of my old jeans. (I take everything to Goodwill now- no holding on to fat clothes "just in case"!)
C25k: Haven't run yet this week, it is still too damn cold! Ugh its in the 40's in May. Something is not right about that. How are you doing Gen? Reading Erin's blog, Size 16 is fat, makes me scared about the coming weeks! I may repeat some weeks...
And thanks for all your comments on the fruit front! That's why I love blogging, so much support and helpful opinions. I think I'll change up my breakfast every once in a while, but not worry about it too much. Especially since I am still losing... For some reason tho, I am worried about a plateau.
PS- I have seen some comments from Chubby McGee and kinda miss that blog. Can someone tell her to add me? :)
Attitude of Gratitude: I found a cool new way to cook veggies. Like broccoli, I cut it up, saute it in a pan with some garlic, pine nuts and Creole seasoning and it is so good. Try it! I am doing the same thing with green beans tonight...
