They say it takes 8 weeks

Saturday, June 25, 2016

So I've read the meme that it takes 8 weeks for others to notice your weight loss. I've been at it about that long. I've been patiently waiting for people to acknowledge the beginning stages of my transformation. More as a validation of true progress than anything. Last night I came downstAirs to hang with the hubby after he got home and the first thing he said was wow you look hott. My hair was crazy and had on pj pants and one of his shirts. It made me feel good. My older boys have told me I look skinnier one said he hardley recognizes me( I think they're just trying to win brownie points) but I feel different. I've alwAys been comfortable in my skin but this is different. I feel like I'm showing my kids that being healthy isn't hard or restricting often I eat what they eat. They see me eat treats with them. My 4 year old daughter asks consistently if the food she happens to be eating is healthy. If it's not...ie cookies ice cream I tell her it's not the best but as long as we don't eat it all the time or all of it at once Its fine. All of my kids have started drinking water like its their job. So I'm here at 8 weeks and the most important people in my life see a difference in me and are establishing a healthy relationship with food. That's validAtion enough for me.

    WTG, keep it up and always do it for yourself first. Then when others notice, it's just a bonus!
