It’s Friday, which means it’s weigh-in day for my weight loss group. I’ve been feeling pretty stuck at 230 lbs for the last couple weeks. It was beginning to seem like I was not going to make it to my first 20 lbs mark.
I had finally started taking a water drinking challenge I committed to seriously this last week. I learned I need to drink seven of my water bottles a day, in order to be hydrated. I have yet to drink seven of them, but I am keeping my water bottle full and sipping throughout the day.
I have really fallen behind on my fitness challenge. My whole house has been sick, making it tough to want to exert that kind of energy. I’m going to try to catch up today, since everything seems to be getting back to normal.
I weighed in this morning, and finally lost 2 pounds. Getting me to my first 20 lbs lost milestone!
The sad thing is I can’t see a difference in this photos. I seem me closer and farther from the mirror. But, as for actual changes in my body, I don’t see any. I know I’m down almost two pants sizes. I know that jeans I used to wear are now too baggy, even to just wear around the house.
And, yet, I am extremely disappointed I don’t see a difference in these photos. I was really looking forward to photographic evidence at my 20 lbs loss.
Oh well, enjoy the victory right?
Screw you 20 lbs, you are never coming back!
