On April 19, I hit my highest weight this year of 186.8. I've now lost 18.2 pounds. 10% of my highest weight, which in WW land is a big milestone.
I started acupuncture and therapy in April. I lost 7 pounds in 2 months, then I started taking lamotrigene and also started the Kay Shepperd plan in June.
Since then, I've lost another 11.2 pounds in 3 months.
I've gone from a tight size 14 to now wearing size 12s comfortably.
Slow & steady. Working to win the race.
Interestingly, no one (other than my mom, unprompted, and my husband, prompted--because I want to know if he can tell) has commented on my weight loss this go round.
Which is fine--honestly I'd rather they not mention it. I don't want the attention (I've got that invisibility issue I'm aware of but not sure how I'm going to handle when/if it comes up again). Nobody commented on the weight as it was coming back on (thank goodness), and I'm fine with nobody commenting as it comes off.
But it's perplexing. Is it because it's not noticeable yet? Is it because they don't want to mention it for the same reason I don't want them to mention it? Is it because most people have better things to do than ponder whether I'm losing weight?
Is it because there really isn't much difference in how I look from a size 14 to 12? (this is, I'm guessing, most likely the reason).
I'm not sure what it means (if anything) that I am even noticing that no one has commented. This is a weird thought process. I am making myself dizzy.
Guess it's better to just keep my head down, do the work, get healthy & feel better, and enjoy the smaller sizes that *I* know are on the tags in my pants. I just needed to get those thoughts out of my head so I can move on.
