Day 155 Weigh In
Time to weigh in again and this week I am down 1.1. pounds. I am happy with my loss but once again I am wondering why it seems so slow. I will take it though because in the long run all of these little losses add up. I am over half way there finally. Seems like a long time coming.
Today was another day of Zumba and weights. Boy am I sore but I love knowing that I am doing something. The sun is shinning and it is getting warmer. Hopefully spring has finally decided to come to Germany.
I decided to try on my new shirts last night. Well they are big. I am thinking I could of gone for a medium. Even when I was smaller I always wore medium or large. I am 5'9 so even at 120 pounds a small shirt was never an option so I thought for sure I needed a large. I think I might keep them and wear them to the gym. Right now I am wearing XL shirts and I finally realized that wearing clothes that are to big for you make you look even bigger. Maybe I am losing a lot more inches then pounds right now. I am going to have Chris remeasure me this weekend.
I am so happy that I have chosen to make these changes head on. I am finally starting to get to the point where looking in the mirror doesn't depress me. Instead of trying to find clothes I can fit into I am trying to find clothes that won't fall off! It is the best feeling in the world.
Finally this new lifestyle is making sense to me. I am reaping the benefits of health. I am lower my risks of cancers and diseases by making myself healthy. There isn't a better feeling in the world!! I am making myself healthier.
