So, I've been at this for almost 4 months, now.
Allow me a moment of stark honesty.
I am experiencing far more insecurity this time around than I experienced last time.
I am pretty sure it has a heck of alot to do with the fact that I am at home this time around.
And maybe the fact that I put on makeup approximately 2 days a week.
And shower maybe 3 days.
But back to the insecurity.
Even though I have done fairly well with my weight loss this time, I still feel so dissatisfied with where I'm at.
However, where I'm at is actually a pretty awesome place to be.
Since my last WWI post, only 3 weeks ago, I have gone from a size 12 - that I was just barely able to squeeze into - to a size 10 - that I can just barely squeeze into.
In reality - when I'm not letting my insecurity rock the house - that's pretty freaking awesome.
I mean size 10 is the last bastion before single digit sizes!
I should really be high kicking for joy right about now!
Something must be wrong with me.
Since I don't have time to do a complete recap, (seriously, you need to follow me on insta.gram, people: leahmpeck)
Here's where we're sitting at today.
I don't know if you remember where I started at....
But I do.
And this number is exactly 20.2 pounds lower than the original one.
That's TWENTY pounds, people!
IN FOUR MONTHS!
I'm a little excited.
As for the before and afters, it's been a few weeks since I could get the pics up, but as of week 13, this what the weight loss looked like:
Despite the fact that there is still a whole lot of insecurity going on, I can tell you that the pictures have been a HUGE encouragement this time around.
(I know I have said it before, but if you are planning to start a weight loss journey, seriously, don't drop the ball on the before and after pics. It has been the only thing to keep me going some weeks when the scale wasn't moving!)
I encourage you to try it!
Long story short, I am pretty excited about hitting the 20 pound mark, and pretty terrified of hitting the plateau that I know is waiting for me any day now!
I just have to continue to remind myself that this is not a quick journey.
Slow and steady will get me there. One pound at a time.
