I’ve been losing weight due to my diet change. When you stop eating carbs and sugar that is a side-effect which is usually quite welcome!
I knew the weight was coming off as my pants kept falling off (as covered in my previous post) and I culled my wardrobe of everything that was miles too big and have another load to donate. And I had to buy new underwear.
I don’t own a scale so every two weeks I get on the scale at the gym so see where I’m at. Last week I was 22 pounds less than I was at Christmas. I did the math – I’ve been losing 0.255 pounds per DAY. Kind of boggles the mind.
AND… last week I FINALLY had two blood sugar readings “in range”! Too bad I can’t have a cake to celebrate. Kidding.
Yesterday I took a photo of myself, well, I took a photo of the face painting I did on myself for a birthday party I was booked for. I like to keep photos of the designs I do for reference. I knew I now had a visible neck and had thinned out a bit in the face but when you look at yourself everyday you don’t see how much of a change there has been.
I went looking for old photos for comparison… Holy crap!
I found one from when I think I was at my heaviest. It was taken in July 1998 (the month I got my driver’s license BTW… just some trivia there.) I don’t actually know how much I weighed as we didn’t own a scale and I preferred not to know. I had levelled off there and hadn’t changed size for several years – this is the me that wore that sweater and size 28 jeans from the previous post.
Well… here is the old me and the new me who is still a work in progress, 18 years apart.
Almost doesn’t look like the same person… but those dated eyebrows are a dead give-away!
