Just when you feel like you haven't done much, you walk by a photo that makes your progress hard to ignore.
Change takes time and sometimes you lose sight of your progress. As humans we occasionally struggle with comparison and I once read that it is the thief of joy. I agree - to a certain degree.
I've learned to compare myself to me. It has taken a lot of practice but doesn't feel so icky that way. Instead of feeling like I'm not enough, I feel proud. I treat myself with kindness instead of self-loathing and that helps me to believe in my ability to succeed.
I also practice acknowledging all of the little benchmarks of progress, it's another thing that helps keep me going. If I only rely on the scale, I would have quit months ago because it hasn't moved below 238 in ages.
Seeing my face slim down is definitely one of those benchmarks. I keep going because of moments like these. I won't quit, because my goals and reasons for making these changes are bigger than any number on the scale.

here's Dec to Dec 3st 9lbs difference (I lost a stone before joining sw) I lost all self confidence and shied away from social interaction to a certain level coz I couldn't stand what looked like. I felt I wasn't worth bothering with. But a bit of self love & self belief showed me how wrong I was.im not at my target weight a neither do I care right now because right now I look good for now soon I'll look great but for now I'm happy I look in the mirror and see me again
