Week Three

Well today's week three. I have lost seven more pounds. That's a grand total of 37 pounds. I know that's more than 10 pounds a week, but today when I saw it was only seven pounds, I admit I cried. I told everyone I was going to be happy if I lost only five to seven pounds, but truthfully I was hoping for it to be a lot less. Then I took my weekly picture. I look horrid. I look like I have a mustache (which I don't). I just feel ugly here. I used to feel pretty. I really did. I use to look in the mirror and see that I had a pretty face, but a fat body. Slowly, that thought has just left me. Now I don't even see a pretty face. I don't know why I'm feeling so blue today. Everyone's so supportive and loving. I just wish I looked prettier. I do want to thank everyone who reads and comments. It really does lift my spirits.

Lin, you are still pretty and beautiful. I know this has got to be one heck of a roller-coaster for you, I won't even pretend to imagine what you are going through, but always know that you are a wonderful person and you have friends that are there for you, if not in the physical sense, we are there for you in spirit and if you need anything, you can talk to me.

What did you mean by, "I was hoping for it to be a lot less?" Did you cry that you had lost so much or (not my opinion) so little? Your progress is great to me!
