Two weeks and seven pounds later, I am in awe at how well this site really works. I tried my best to remain skeptical, and until today I was still a little worried that maybe my scale was tricking me, maybe I had just lost water weight from cutting back on my sodium, etc. etc. But the skinny jeans test does not lie. Yessir, not a muffin top in sight! It's hard for me to see my own progress, and most of my trouble spots are still..troubling. I know they'll be the last to go so I'm trying be patient. They will go!
I visited my grandparents today, and was told that I'd had to stand in the same place twice to make a shadow. He's a funny old man. Speaking of which, has anyone ever had issues with other's reactions to the news that you're on a diet? I don't have body image issues, and don't look at all emaciated or unhealthy. I could lose 15 more pounds and my BMI would still be in the "healthy" range, but more often than not, when I tell someone I'm counting calories, they react as if I'm on the verge of an eating disorder and tell me that I shouldn't be dieting. How am I supposed to respond?
