I just finished my third round of this three week program. The shifts that have been happening mentally are huge for me. I look at food differently. I’ve stayed more consistent with my nutrition then I ever have in my life. I’ve never been on a program where it’s totally fine to have wine, cheese, dessert, whatever…and because I’m not feeling deprived, I’m not binging…for the first time in my life! THAT IS HUGE!
I woke up feeling good and leaner than normal. I was actually excited to step on the scale, feeling like I might have hit my next big goal (20 lbs lost). The number on the scale was disappointing, and I let it piss me off for a few minutes. I’m still holding strong at 16 lbs down, not losing as rapidly as I did in the beginning. So instead of stressing and obsessing, I asked Miles to take a few pictures so I could see what was really happening. Here are the before and afters, from June 7-today.
Fuck the scale, this is progress. I’m so much leaner. I have so much more energy. I’m not trying on every dress in my closet just to go out to dinner. I still have a long way to go, and I’ll be honest, posting these pictures publicly makes me die inside a little, but this blog is about my journey…all of it. Even if it means I have to post pictures that make me cringe. The number on the scale is just a fucking number. It is a tiny component of this journey, and I’m so glad there are other tools to measure my progress. Lesson learned.
