Every day I look at myself in the mirror and think I don't look any different. I'll tell you right now, don't trust your own eyes. Trust the way your jeans fit and what other people observe. Then allow yourself to be happy! It's hard not to think it's a drop in a bucket, and trust me I battle that one all the time, but the less I worry about the contents of the bucket and instead focus on each small success the better I feel.
I started writing my next 5 lb. goal on my hand so that I'm always thinking about it. Five pounds doesn't seem so overwhelming and seeing the number 35 on my hand reinforces my commitment to myself. If you are thinking about or trying to lose weight know that you can do it! Find the thing that works for you and go for it. For me it started with drinking shakes and getting the proper nutrition. Maybe for you it's getting up and moving daily. Find someone you can share your journey with and go for it! You may end up happy like me! :)
