I weighed in today, and I lost 1.4 pounds. I was a bit disappointed because I worked so hard the week prior, but I didn’t eat much over the weekend. And I didn’t work out (because I’m sick..have you heard? hehe) So I really shouldn’t be disappointed about losing 1.4 pounds.
And to cheer myself up, I decided to revisit some of the coats that didn’t fit before. I took pictures of my progress a few months ago when they did fit, but I thought I’d do it again because they’re even bigger now. Yay.
If you ever need to feel excited about your weight loss then look back at pictures from before you started. It will work..believe me. I posted before pics and current pics in October too (in the same coats.) Click here to see the progress I had made by October.
So here are a few updated pics of my coats…
(Now check out the extra room I have in it. Also, you can see a little of my new
Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy 35 in the background. hehe)
and crunches that focus on the transverse abs. It will fit soon!)
Now, after seeing these differences I don’t feel so bad about not losing as much as I’d hoped this week. I’ve lost 86 pounds. And I’m going to keep losing…keep getting healthier…and keep being proud myself for the little accomplishments that add up to big ones.
The tortoise won the race…and he did it by putting one step in front of the other until he found himself at the finish line. So I’m proud of my losses (even on weeks in which I thought they’d be bigger) because they add up which is most important in the big picture.
How do you track your progress? Is it harder for you to see it even when others do?
