Here I am representing my son's boarding school at a high school fair. I talked to 7th and 8th grade students and their parents about boarding school. I have issues with social anxiety, and I'm an introvert, so I was way out of my comfort zone. Still, I did this. My son is thriving at school. He's so happy. That motivated me to go to the fair. I enjoyed sharing our experiences with people considering boarding school.

After the event, some pictures of it were posted on Facebook. I cropped one of the pictures so I could see myself better. I am disappointed by how large I still am. I have lost 40lbs, and I'm very happy with that, but I still weigh close to 300lbs. I can't see much of a difference in the way I look. That is a bit discouraging. However, I can really feel it. I'm stronger. I really struggle with fatigue, and I'm really tired today, but things are getting better. I just need to manage my expectations.

    It's really tough to stay motivated when we're starting at such high weights. We just can't see it! It takes me nearly seventy pounds before I lose a size and actually start seeing it. For now, do what you're doing: concentrate on how much better you're feeling! We'll get there eventually.

    I'm sure your cloths fit better! Don't beat yourself up it is a process and you are doing great! just think how much more you would weigh if you hadn't lost the 40 lbs! emoticon emoticon
