VLCD 16 – I’m a Snail, but I’m Winning the Race 

I just got off the scale and I’m down another .6 lbs today. As usual, I’m slow and steady. I feel like I’m losing at a snail’s pace and it’s driving me crazy!!! 

I don’t want to be a snail anymore! Now…I’m not demanding to be a hare (although it would be nice), but at least let me move up to turtle status!

HOWEVER, excluding my cheat day, I consistently lose daily and have not yet stalled; so I suppose I am still winning the race. I’m thinking about cutting the fruit for the next few days to see how that impacts my losses. 

In other news, I’m beginning to see a difference in my stomach. When laying in bed, I used to be able to grab a lot of skin; now it’s getting flatter. When standing and looking down at the ground, I can see my feet. I know it sounds crazy, but I couldn’t see my feet over my stomach before. In my own way progress is being made. Honestly, I would rather see physical changes than changes on the scale. For me, my goal is to have a smaller me and fit into and look better in my clothes. Nonetheless, I hope these pounds and inches become friends soon and work together to show losses. 

Day 9 today on my plank and squat challenges and I’m hanging in there. Until tomorrow…

Grace and peace!
