Just a friendly reminder that even if you can’t see the results happening in the mirror or on the scale yet… it doesn’t mean they aren’t happening!! Figured this out today

Just started my weight loss journey about a month ago …. I’ve been eating clean and working my ass off in the gym daily. But I have only been able to lose around 5 pounds. I was feeling really discouraged this week because I haven’t been seeing drastic results on the scale. With all the work I’ve been putting in I felt like only a 5 pound difference just wasn’t encouraging at all…… and I’ve noticed no change in how I look when I see myself in the mirror.

I bought a dress a couple months back that was too small for me. I could get it on but the sleeves were restricting to the point where I could barely move my arms, and the waist was suffocating. Today I saw that same dress in my closet and thought what the heck… let me try it … didn’t expect it at all to fit because in my mind my body hadn’t changed that much…but I put it on and there is such a noticeable difference in how it fits. The sleeves and waste aren’t restricting and it fits nearly perfectly!

So I’m just writing this in case anyone else is going through the same thing 🙂 I guess when we see ourselves everyday in the mirror it’s hard to notice when our body is changing. And even if we don’t see it right away, or even if the scale doesn’t show it right away, that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening!
