I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s odd how my mind and body are not on the same page. I’ve gotten compliments and I know that I’ve lost over 35 pounds, however I don’t see in the mirror what I expect to see. It makes me perplexed on how our brain works and makes me realize how perception is truly in the eye of the beholder.
I’m happy about how far I’ve come, and I realized that I’m getting so close to my original goal of weighing 170 pounds. Honestly, I didn’t think that was even possible when I began SG. But now I think I can pass my original goal and go for something even lower since I’m “ahead of schedule”. I just hope my brain can catch up and accept my body and be happy about how I look. I just need to gain some self-confidence now that I know I have some self-control with food and know that I am able to do the things that I set my mind to.
