Been a while since we did this - and since the holidays are coming, I thought it might be nice to provide each other with encouragement.
On my front I am losing fat, but no weight.
All in all it is good to be getting thinner. I really *am *thinner and it isn’t wishful thinking, despite what the scale says. Not only did people notice it and mention it over Thanksgiving but I have had to buy new pants. One guy I saw over TG had just seen me in October and he noticed the difference. Mom really saw it, but she hasn’t seen me in a longer time. I see it from August pics of me and current pics of me.
Over the summer, July or August I bought size 40 jeans - and they were just a bit snug.
I just bought size 36 last week - they were a bit snug and now are almost comfortable.
But damn! I want the scales to go down too.
OK, I get that I am likely putting on muscle in my legs and all that (from jogging.) I get that losing fat is good and it isn’t all about what I weigh. Still… I want to see the scales move.
On my part I am jogging 2 miles 4 times a week and trying to keep the sugars out of my diet.
Just a note to wish you all success and will-power during the holiday season.
