My goal for April was to get under 165 and I don't think that's honestly going to happen. I'm really close but I really blew it this month. I got into a funk once my work schedule changed then getting put on jury duty (which I love btw) but now I am finally getting back in the groove. My jury duty is always out by 430 so I have been going to zumba and eating right since I can take my lunch. I have given up on being lazy for dinners and started cooking again. The last two nights I have tried new recipes and have loved them. Everything I have made out of the ww cookbook so far has been delicious!!! I have gone to zumba the past two nights but taking a break tonight to see some family. Then Friday I am going to a wedding where I am sure there will be plenty of dancing, then Saturday I am going to a Zumba toning class.
I felt like I was getting complacent with where I was at in my current weight. I thought I looked ok, obviously not where I wanted to be since I have another 25lbs to go but I was semi happy with where I was. Things fit well and I got noticed again and the words hot and sexy had been coming out of my husbands mouth a lot more frequently. Then on Easter Sunday, I saw a lot of family that I haven't seen since Christmas and I have lost about 18lbs since Christmas so it shows. Everyone's reaction seemed to be "wow you have lost a lot of weight you look good, great, awesome," a bunch of different things. It always makes me a feel a little awkward when ppl notice I have lost weight. I don't really know what to say besides thank you. It makes me feel uncomfortable in a way especially when it comes from someone overweight or who has failed at weight loss previously. It also sometimes makes me thing I looked really ugly before when I was heavier with peoples shocked reactions. Does anyone ever feel this way when people notice their weight loss? Don't get me wrong I love that people notice and that's what has fueled the fire in me to get back into it. I haven't seen these ppl in a while and I have lost about 18lbs and they all notice if I can get to goal by the next time I see them what will they think then??? Obviously I am not doing this for other people but I was getting discouraged by not seeing the evil scale move in the right direction, but these people made everything so clear to me. Yah its been a few weeks since I had seen a loss, yah I may not be where I thought I was going to be at this point, but I have come a long way in a few months. Almost 20lbs down since December that may be slow but I have kept it off and I have worked hard to get to where I am now. I am at my half way point and the only place to go from here is down. My goal is within a reachable distance and I can't wait to get there!
