How long does this take?!

I’ve been having a great week this far, but isn’t waiting for the results the *worst*?!

Plus you don’t notice 2lbs down. You don’t notice when you’re my size until like 20 lbs down. Which does not happen overnight.


Waiting 12 weeks for people to notice?! That’s three months which feels like forever, even though I know it will fly by!

I think that is what makes staying on track week after week so hard. You don’t see the damage that “one” meal really causes. And for me it’s never just one meal. It turns into two and then three….

And losing a week is losing a lot in the long run. I can’t do anything about the time I’ve lost, but I can keep hanging in there and making good choices day after day. That’s what it takes to do this. One day at a time, one meal at a time, one pound at a time.

I’m going to keep celebrating the small victories. I can’t make huge changes all at once, but little changes here and there will add up and make a difference.


I know I’m eating chicken and fish with breading again, but at least I’m eating chicken and fish and not fast food. I’m counting calories and hitting my goals this way, and I will lose weight again.

It’s just going to take time. This is my ultimate test in patience! Which is my absolute worst quality- I am the most impatient person I know! But, I’m going to have to learn how to do it slow and steady and just keep doing it and keep doing it and keep doing it some more.

  1. I know your pain! I’m probably one of the most impatient people in the world, LOL. I hate waiting for results to show!! They do eventually show, though. And I hate that say “you didn’t get fat overnight”…..well, I guess it’s true, but why is it so easy to gain 10lbs and so hard to lose them? LOL Keep up the good work!!

  2. Keep swimming! That’s all I can say. I have had some frustrating weeks….but no matter what…I can’t quit. To regain all that weight is not an option. To go back to old eating habits, is not an option. Well done for all the positive changes you have made.

    In 3 months, 6 months you will look back and be so proud. The small changes…they DO ADD UP!
