Finally the hard work paid off and I got what I've been hoping for... Someone to notice and say OH my goodness Emma you've lost so much weight!
I know it's incredibly vain but I wanted it BADLY. In my mind it wasn't real until someone who didn't know I was actively trying to lose weight looked at me and actually noticed.
IT’S soooooo REAL BABY
OK I'm a realist and not ashamed to admit that I'm doing it to LOOK GOOD! It’s not the only reason or even the most important reason but it's still up there. Other reasons range from wanting to feel proud of achieving my goal (I NEVER FINISH WHAT I START!!!) to being able to keep up with my boy as he gets older, to feeling more comfortable in my clothes and, of course let’s not forget being healthier and sexier in general.
The past couple of weeks I have been sick as a dog so my intentional weightloss has been on the backburner. I’ve eaten anything that will stay down so that was mostly salty junk food and bread washed down with sugar laden fizzy drinks… I have finally got my apatite back so I better start watching what I eat again.
I also quit WW. OK it’s not as drastic as it sounds! I can’t afford to be a member anymore but I’m still going to visit the boards for support and I’ve made a spreadsheet of most of the foods I eat so can chart when I feel I need to. The major thing I’ve learned in this journey is to be conscious of what I’m putting in my mouth. The irony here is I’m typing and eating Pizza! At least I’m conscious of the fact I’m doing it (hehe)
