I like to think that for some people there are moments when they just know they need to lose weight. Be it getting out of breath walking downhill, a shock weigh in at the doctors, splitting a shirt that fit a few months earlier or getting stuck on a roller coaster ride in Germany and having people make fun of you as they try to get you down.
Today was one of those days where if I hadn’t been trying to change I would have been encouraged to do so. Since I am still losing weight it just made me more determined.
I was on the way back from the nurse today having had my leg patched up for another few days and as it was windy (understatement x massive). As bandaging requires access to my entire lower leg I usuall wear a pair of jogging trousers with the legs slit on the inside as far as halfway up the leg. Today as I was walking back the wind caught them, blew the loose sections up and away, exposing my legs… just as I was walking towards a highly reflective window.
Now I look in the mirror from time to time and notice I have a long way to go, but for some rason that made me more determined than ever to lose weight. Maybe it’s because normally I just see my face or upper body.
