And Speaking of FAT - that nasty three letter word - we all know that it is everywhere on our body but we really don't think of it too much until we realize that our clothes are fitting a bit differently...but these days, it's not just my clothes that are fitting crazy but everything! My SHOES?! Yes, my feet are slipping around in my shoes these days...When I first got out here, and bought shoes in town (which are sized much differently than in the US) I was in a LL - which by the way they don't sell allot of and I would find these really cute shoes but they would not have my size and I would be disappointed because I had this big American foot...but I went the other day to look at shoes and again found a super cute pair...but they were a size L..UUGGHH! they will never fit me - but Andy encouraged me to try them on anyway; so I did and guess what?! They fit me! really, my foot is smaller! YAY! But like I said all of me is smaller, I pulled out my shorts from last summer because it's finally getting warmer...none of my shorts from last summer fit me, That's great news but I am afraid to buy anything new as I still have a number of pounds to lose...so instead, I have pulled out belts that I wore in High School...it's such a strange feeling to know that I can fit back into them....I thought those days were so far behind me and a thing of the past that would never be a part of my life again (but yet I kept them; I know crazy!) And there is more....Arm Pits....have you ever wondered why they are called pits? I finally figured it out...because they are supposed to be pits, and if you are a woman, you know that we shave those arm pits just about everyday - and normally it's a pretty easy feat, you raise your arms, you have this nice flat piece of skin and you shave easily those pesky hairs...it's a little more difficult for me these days, as it really is a PIT! the razor doesn't fit in there very well and I have to stand there and angle it so many different ways that it seems I still miss some of the hairs! I think I am going to have to start waxing...that possibly may be easier. Shelly had told me that it would happen and I figured that it was true I mean this lady really knows her stuff (I mean really knows her stuff and the pictures will prove it!) But, really can you imagine not having that skin when you raise your arm be taut for you to shave it? It concave in...it really concave in! So I'm not fitting in my clothes, I'm wearing belts that I had in high school, and I have these crazy arm pits, my body fat has gone down 5% in the past two months, my weight 11pounds and inches...well just look!
I hope that you all have taken your progression photos too.....I can't believe the progress I've made!! And you won't believe yours either till you see it in print! Part of holding yourself accountable is to have these photos done....Really I know that it is horrible to do - I didn't even want to take these Friday either...but looking at them and where I was 6 months ago is just unbelievable! But it's reality...make yours your reality too!
