    Wednesday i have my 4th weigh in and i guess there will be 10 kg off by then (hope some more but we shall see). I see my body change and my belly is really shrinking, my mood is no longer depressed but happy and "charming". Last week i met someone i know, he looked at me and i saw a surprise. "You look different but i can't lay my finger on it". A slightly little smile appeared on my face and i told him i was loosing weight. He didn't see that but he saw a real change and kept shaking his head. I work only with man and when i'm talking to them i see them observing me. They also see a change but what is it? It's definitely the weight loss combined with a change in attitude. I imagine that they see the pretty woman in me coming out. Last Saterday i saw a friend who knows i'm on cd and she was so enthusiastic. I was wearing a very short denim skirt with long boots in which she had never seen me before. She noticed the weight loss and said i looked fantastic. Wow, what a boost!
    For me it's "just" 10 kg (a rough guess) i lost and i'm still a big girl but my self esteam is growing with the day.
    I know it won't take long before the world notices my weight loss and o man, i will enjoy all the compliments which are ahead of me. In the meantime i enjoy looking at all those surprised faces and giving them a big smile back.

    Sorry for the long story guys but this is so good for my English:p

    Hugs

    Hi botozi

    Good to hear that you are starting to reap the rewards from your weight loss journey. From your post it is obvious that it is having a wonderful effect on your self esteem.

    Quite recently someone noticed for the first time that I had lost weight - and I was over the moon (and had a silly little smile on my face, and a warm glow inside for the rest of the day).

    Enjoy all of the compliments that come your way, and I am sure there will be more and more as you continue your weight loss journey.

    Keep up the good work - you are doing so well!!

    it is great that you are gaining such a positive change in your self esteem and confidence. I notice an improvement in mine but because I keep reading of the big changes others have observed in themselves I think I may have too high expectations for myself.

    Every now and then I find myself thinking about the changes in my self esteem and confidence and although I have noticed changes I think I have an expectation that I'll be really different when actually I might not be. Noone has made any comment to me about my seeming different in myself. I wonder if they don't notice or if I am not that different.

    Hmmm. Enough self reflection. It is great to read your posts botozi and your english is very good (as I have come to expect of those from the Netherlands).
