**Day 140**

222.5 - I lost half a pound.  Seriously?  But you know what?  Look at this:
I just bought this shirt in the pic's a Large!  A regular size Large, and it fits!  Also:
The pants above are getting really baggy - they are a size 18.  I'm pretty sure I'm getting close to being a solid size 16!

So, no, the number on the scale isn't moving much, but I'm losing inches.  I can see it in my shirts and my pants, and I'm so happy about that!  Yes, it bums me out that I'm not seeing a much lower number on the scale.  Am I still eating too much?  Am I not eating enough?  Is my PCOS slowing me down again - do I need to up my meds?  Am I not drinking enough water?  Am I not working out enough?  I'm not sure what it is, BUT I know I AM making progress, and I need to focus on that!  The number will go down - I know this!  I just need to be patient, and keep doing what I'm doing because, again, I know my body is changing for the better, so I can't let the number on the scale discourage me.  I may not get to my goal as fast as I want to, but I WILL get there!



    Inches are equally as important as the scale. It means your body is CHANGING. FOR THE BETTER. That is such a joyful thing. I'm proud of you!!!

    P.S. I see your face! Someone is getting more confidence. I'll call that an "NSV"! Oh! And you're pretty!

  2. You're doing so awesome, Shannon... and you're such a lovely woman. Keep it up, you inspire me.

  3. Wouldn't it be worse if you were losing weight but not inches :). You look terrific!

  4. This is a good attitude to have. I know how frustrating it can be to have the inches go and not the pounds.. but they will follow eventually.

  5. Awww - thanks, everyone! You all make me feel so good! Thank you, thank you, thank you for always supporting me - it means so, so much to me!!!
