I've done really well since my last fill. Really really well. Kind of scary well. Like I'm obviously not complaining, but when the scale said 170.6 this morning - aka .6lbs away from 100lbs down... It's all a bit overwhelming.
There is something about approaching this goal that is just so crazy to me. I set the initial goal weight of 170 because it was an even 100lbs down, and because it was closer to 150 than 200. I never would have imagined how good I would feel weighing this, and at the same time, how sure I am about wanting to lose a solid amount more - anywhere from another 20 to 35lbs.
I often feel like the image I have about myself and my looks and reality are out of whack, but here are some facts about all of this that I just can't deny:
-I am wearing size 29 or 30 jeans
-I have jeans that my mother, someone I would by no means have ever called overweight, was wearing last year.
-I am 7lbs away from having a BMI in the normal range.
I can't deny any of these facts. Obviously it is going to take some time for my mind to catch up with my body, and I am going to keep working and keep losing as it does.
Do you feel like your brain has trouble processing your physical changes? For me, remembering the actual facts helps - what helps you?
PS here are some new pics from my brother and sister-in-law's visit here with a bunch of their friends!
