The best thing about losing 10 pds....

I am posting twice today, yes. I just noticed something while walking around my office building to get my lunch...my pants are super loose. Before I lost the 10 pds. my pants were busting at the seams, I thought I would have to go up a size even. After I lost the 10 pds. they are loose and comfty. I am really proud of myself. Even if this next 10 pounds is hard to get off, I am happy with the 10 I lost because I can fit into my pants again. Also, it is important that I keep this 10 pds. off. I feel so much better and am more confident. This is mainly because I no longer have the "muffin top" I used to have. It sucked, it would show through sweaters and tshirts...it made me so uncomfortable.

Anyway, 10 pds. is a lot of weight to loose....even though people really don't notice it, I notice. I did get upset quite a few times because no one noticed my weight loss and everyone noticed and doted on my boyfriends weight loss. (He basically lost 20 pds. just by not eating fast food in same amount of time). I am doing this for me and not other people. So if anyone is being hard on themselves for not losing more, just look at what you have done so far and try to keep it off. I know it is hard to appreciate past efforts and not get down on yourself, but I think we all need to be a little nicer to ourselves.
