So I lost another 3.4 pounds last week, putting me at 45 pounds, and 5 shy of the big 5-0. While I’ve been trying to not focus entirely on weight, I have finally started to actually see that I’ve lost weight. I mean, my clothes have definitely started to fit much looser (especially my argyle sweaters I can no longer wear, along with my work slacks that almost fell down this morning as I ran for a bus, yeah that would’ve been a sight), but last night I finally noticed that my face has gotten skinnier since last January. I thought it might be fun to post a comparison photo of me on my honeymoon vs. now (and cut me some slack, I took this photo last night right before bed, so my hair is a little bit fro-ish).
Kind of crazy, no? I mean it’s nothing epic but I am definitely starting to have less of a double chin, and my cheeks are waaaay less chubby. I’m actually pretty excited about this revelation, as I realized in also comparing myself back to a photo in 2008, this is the lightest I’ve been in awhile. Definitely a motivator to keep me going on my journey, and I really can’t wait until I’ve lost enough to feel comfortable posting full-body photos. While it’s definitely started to show, I’ll save those for later when I can really show off the difference. 🙂
