How Low Can You Go

Mirror, Mirror, When Will I See What They See?

>> Monday, March 15, 2010

I was just looking at myself in the mirror and realized that in the last two years I have almost lost 50 lbs.  That is alot of weight. I have come a long way, but there is still a long way to go. Where did it come from? Where did it go? Don't get me wrong, I have kept track of the inches and I know WHERE it came from, but honestly I still look and feel like me.  I lost the weight for me, no one else.  My heart is stronger, it thanks me every day. To me I still look like the same person, still have the same smile, same face.  I know that I have lost weight, my pants are too big, my stomach  feels flatter.  But honestly I really don't see that much of a change.  People who have not seen me in awhile, ask me what I have done, they say I look great. But I really wonder what will it take for me to see it...

I can totally relate.

A few months ago, I had lost about 85% of my goal lbs to lose. I could see that progress was made, but I was aware of how far I have yet to go. It took a friends comment for me to really realize how much weight/inches I had truly lost. I finally looked at the mirror and saw the progress.

There is a new project that capture what real women look like...and here's how part they describe it..."Most women have spent so many years looking at themselves in mirrors that we can no longer see what's really there."

I totally think that has been/is true for me too.

I fully support this comment. Sometimes I just want to keep running into ppl from my past so that they can remind me of how far I have come from. Though the waistline is smaller, clothes way too big... I still see that same chubby/fat kid, adolescent and woman each time I look in the mirror. I'm not sure what will change that.

I can totally relate to this. I've lost 23lbs since Jan 4, 2010 and I can not see the change. My husband & kids tell me that I am looking good & my body is shrinking but, all I can see are the flaws. It's time we start embracing ourselves for what we are. I know I have to continue on my journey but, my new focus is being healthy!! So, I'm going to keep on trucking through! All the best to you on your journey!
