Ya’ll! I’m still beaming from my first “You’ve Lost Weight!” statement. It happened on Sunday, roughly around noon and can’t tell you how much it means to me to have heard it from someone else. I decided to start the Ketogenic diet on March 20, 2017 and I must admit I wanted to know when (if ever) I was going to receive my first “you’ve lost weight” statement from someone. I thought I was going to get it from my husband but he said that “I see you all the time” statement that is oh so accurate but it’s one I dread because that means he’s really not paying attention. I thought I was going to get it from my Mom when she visited but nope. I somewhat notice it in my clothing but it would be nice to hear it from an outside source.
And I did! It was amazing!!! On a day that I would be within every single right to abandon my way of eating, I was encouraged not do so because of those three words. Now that’s a Non-Scale Victory (NSV) in my book and just what I needed to continue my challenge of “No Weigh May” which is for me to refrain from stepping on and looking at the scale during the month of May. I didn’t pay too much attention to the fact that my clothes feel different or that I need less seat belt to buckle up. I didn’t notice that the indenture on the couch is less or that I’m not in the kitchen as often as I used to be (I still have a 5 year old kid at home who’s growing like a weed). All my focus has been on is how I reacted to those words “you’ve lost weight” and how it has propelled me to continue my journey. My reaction isn’t one of need but it echoes the sentiments that I have within myself: I can do this and that I’ve finally found what works for me! I think I just love the fact that others are seeing it too which furthers the fact that I’m right. And I just LOVE being right, especially when it comes to my health.
Until next time, have a great day!
