Excuse me while I have a self absorbed moment.
4 1/2 months ago I started this journey really doubting that I could lose 50 lbs by my birthday in April, but I started anyway. I knew I had to take it one day at a time. I figured the baby weight should come off fairly quickly and after that it would be a struggle. Well the baby weight is gone and I'm now approaching my historical plateau zone. Everytime I have tried to lose weight I get to about 180 and everything just stops. I'm hoping and praying that I can quickly move from 184 (today's weight) to 174 and not get stuck. I'm going to continue to push forward. After losing 30 lbs, 20 doesn't seem like a lot so I know I can do this.
One tiny little aspect of this journey that is driving me nuts, is no one is saying anything. My hubby, my family, my friends...not one person has said anything about how good I look or how great I'm doing. Come on people 30 lbs and you cant utter a "you look great"?? I've been all about internal motivation, but a little external would be great. My hubby makes comments every now and again but they aren't out of the blue comments they are more like when I'm already talking about how great I feel or the scale went down again. I may be at pre preg weight but it certainly is not the same pre preg body. My pre preg pants are falling off....but I weigh the same. UGH, maybe I should go walk by a construction zone and see if I can get some whistles and comments :laugh:
