I hear all of you and I've felt the same way! Today I feel a bit lighter, my pot is shrinking and my husband was happy to hear I had lost 9 pounds.

There have been two things that have amazed me about this time on this WOE. First, I haven't been super-hungry. I'm someone who has ALWAYS been hungry between meals, since I was a child. I've always described myself as someone with a "very healthy appetite". Second, I am satisfied with a smaller meal now ...

Today, for example, I didn't eat until around 3 pm, when I made scrambled eggs and fried sausages for me and my husband. Around 9:30 pm I wanted more so I picked some lettuce and cherry tomatoes (lucky me) and had them with creamy dressing, roast chicken and toasted walnuts. Absolutely delicious and satisfying. I'm just feeling so goldarn good, I wanted to say so. :-)

But today I have worn a pretty bra for the first time ever. And it held up my boobs well enough with no under wire. And it doesn't hurt my shoulders

I wouldn't go running with it but nice to wear something more feminine


A pretty bra that offered support is something to celebrate!

Congrats on the early success Carox. I am so glad to hear you are not hungry. Makes a big difference for people if they are not battling that urge.

Keep it up, and it will be gone before you know it!

I get a lot of people commenting on how beautiful my hair is now...

Actually Change in my perception.

When I was younger with just a few extra pounds(5-10), my perception was completely whacked. It got this way from listening to external influences, my parents, friends, siblings.

I felt back then(175-185) as fat as I felt at my highest point. I don't think I have ever known what it is like to like my body or to be proud of my body or feel slender (even when I was slender and athletically ripped in some of my muscles).

I have always felt fat. And thus be ashamed and don't show the fattage when wearing clothes.

A coworker yesterday commented on how good I looked. I almost was hestitant to wear the shirt I did, cause I thought it was a little bit snuggy. And she said, "this is the first time I can actually see your weight loss and wow". She said the typical clothes I wear to work drapes/hides and it is difficult to see it.

This opened my eyes, to me in a constant mode of hiding my fat, being ashamed of my fat.

So today I took a polo shirt that was a 22/24 in size and wore it to work. I was thinking I should wait a few more pounds for it to be looser.

i didn't. I wore it it looked good and I felt good. And I thanked my co-worker. She loved the shirt on me and said it was the perfect size.

The weight loss has now giving me the gift of showing off my body regardless the weight.

I am going through my closet and saying seriously I wore this it looks so blocky, and bulky what was I thinking?

I can't wait for the day I can tuck in my shirt and not look like a guy that has a belly over hanging.

I love being able to keep up with my one year old and not be too tired to play.
I was at my heaviest with my older kids and 20.13 and 9 now. I feel sad that I was too tired to do all the things I do with my little guy now.
