Another week has passed by and another pound has gone! This now makes a total loss of 35lbs so far. I’ve got pretty much the same again to go yet though and just typing that has suddenly made me feel that it’s so far away.
I mean, 19 weeks is a long time! And that was with great losses at the start. Now that it’s settled down into losing tiny amounts at a time it seems like it’ll take forever and a day.
Still, I shall not be disheartened because, no matter how small, a loss is still a loss.
My clothes are getting larger now. It’s not very difficult as I’m still wearing maternity clothes. As I’ve mentioned before, they are all I’ve lived in for the last six years or so. The addition of an extra stone of weight after each child resulted in an extra five stones in six years. That’s a lot of weight. I’m loathe to spend money on any clothes at the moment though. I have a couple of pairs of never worn trousers in a smaller size in my drawers. I couldn’t even get them up past my knees at once stage. Last week I tried a pair on and managed to get them all the way up and fastened! Don’t feel too happy for me, my thighs still looked like rabbits in a sack. I’m thinking it’ll take another half a stone or so to lose before they sit comfortably.
I’m ashamed at having allowed it to get this far. I mean, it would have been much easier to lose a stone at a time wouldn’t it? So why didn’t I? Sometimes I don’t understand myself but am so frustrated that I’ve let it get to this.
I can see my body shape is changing now too. Certain prominent lumps and bumps are smoothing out and becoming less obvious. It’s nice to see something changing visually that isn’t just the numbers on the scales.
Hopefully week 20 will be a good one. How are you all doing on your journeys?
