So far things are going pretty good. I have been able to stick to my eating and exercising goals and things are positive on the scale. I even felt OK about trying on swimsuits. The thing I keep reminding myself is that I'm a little thinner, but not necessarily thin. I'm trying to keep a positive yet realistic attitude so I don't get discouraged.
One thing that is a little hard for me right now is the desire to isolate myself in an attempt to eliminate temptation. I think this is a common problem when finally making weight loss progress. In addition to that, being sick for over two weeks already had me hibernating and monitoring my every move. I have found that I'm not quite back to 100% so maybe that has something to do with it. I do know that I am really enjoying being a few pounds lighter. I can already tell the difference in my face and in my cloths. It feels so good I just want to keep it up, but I am also going to have to continue with life.
