I'm a bit late posting this but better late than never I guess. Week 8 went well. I lost 4.8 pounds (for a total of 36 pounds) and 15.5 inches (for a total of 32 inches.) When I look in the mirror I see such a huge difference in myself and my clothes are hanging off of me. Yet very few people (other than my wonderfully supportive hubby and one friend) seem to be noticing. This is such a huge source of frustration for me. I don't even WANT to care if people notice, but I care. A lot. I keep telling myself it's my journey and nobody else's. What does it matter what anyone thinks? Why is it that I can't just be proud of myself? Why do I look to others for validation? Is anyone else struggling with this?
