I can't believe how much I have changed physically in the past 2 months. 43 Pounds is more than I ever imagined to lose so quickly. I can feel bones in my body that I haven't felt in years. I got to buy a pair of jeans that are a size 8, and two jackets are a size small! I am a little over half way to my goal, and am beginning to think I may actually make it...but hate to get my hopes up. Eating is getting easier, but more than anything I have quit worrying so much about it. I have found things that I can eat, and if I need more protein, I drink a shake or two. I cook normal, healthy meals for my family, and enjoy having family dinners....I just don't eat much! Things have just gotten easier, and yet I am still losing. I can't help but fear the scale every week. I just know that I am going to have gained weight over the last week...but I step on, and it has gone down again. For some reason I am not obsessed with weighing every day like I used to be. If I only lose 1/2 a pound one week, then next week I will lose 4, and so I continue to average 2 lbs a week. The great thing is that if I continue this trend, I will be below my goal weigh by my 35th birthday on June 9th...I can't imagine being 120 lbs during the summer, and being able to buy a normal swimming suit!!!!! So, here is hoping!
