Exercising SUCKS!!!! However, there are rewards in each milestone that is conquered. I’ve been exercising regularly but it’s difficult to see one owns progress unless it’s a drastic weight loss. I’ve had people ask me if I’ve lost weight, or that I look great and happier, that I stand up taller. I can’t really SEE the difference but I can FEEL it. Tipping the scale at 260 pounds and now at 226 pounds, it’s difficult to register the two weights. It just doesn’t make sense to me because all I can see are current existing flaws. I think I’m the same person physically, so coming to terms with weight loss is just weird. The up side of this small weight loss milestone is that I splurged on four Kimono type maxi dress, convertible purse, sweatpants, and these sweatpants are a large, it’s a huge step away from an extra-large. I’m also going shopping for a few dress shirts. These are my rewards. I’ve earned them. My next rewards won’t come until I reach 200 pounds. I know it’s going to be a struggle to reach this next goal weight but at least I know if I can lose 40 pounds, I can drop another 26. I just have to stay motivated even in the face of seemingly no progress. The body is a unique contraption, some times it works with you or against you. I can’t wait to show you all my outfits. Stay tuned!
