New Pics and a couple of thoughts

Thursday, July 25, 2013

*Not sure why it is not letting me rotate and save them to post them the correct direction. I'm still learning a new operating system, so you will have to excuse me on this one*

If you go back to around June 2011, you can find my original photos (taken after I'd already lost 10 pounds) and compare. It blew my mind! I've lost enough weight to notice that my body is "fitting" together differently, and better! For instance when I sit and bring my knees to my chest, I can actually do that. I can curl up into such a small ball now! I can now cross my legs UNDER the computer desk + keyboard *kind of a weird feeling still*. I was on a plane recently and was able to cross my legs and sit fairly comfortable for the flight. Another one that gave me a kind of weird, introspective feeling was when I noticed how my shadow has changed. It really made me think about how I perceive myself and how others possibly see me. I've noticed other things too, like being able to feel my hips when I place my hands on them, knee bones sticking out and the ever sought after collar bones are visible!

I have been losing weight at a creeping pace, but I'm ok with that! This vine is growing roots in deep! I have been eating out maybe once a week now; I roller blade with my boyfriend and strength train a couple of times a week. And I'm just so dang happy =) I hope you all are as happy as I am!

    I love those NSVs!!!!!!!! They're the best. And I can relate to every one you just said. Well, not the plane because I didn't fly until I was 22- well after I'd lost the 120. But I remember how it felt sitting in the car and not having my stomach touch the steering wheel!

    Oh yeah , I see A LOT of difference. Your waist is way more defined & you don't have that thick pudge to your belly .

    emoticon JOB ! I am glad to hear all of the NSV's you are experiencing .
