I am noticing it is going from the top down and the bottom up. I don't always see the difference but I feel it in my clothes and body. I am like an anorexic in that I still don't see differences occurring. The mind is a powerful delusional tool at times. My brother has a friend who is much further along on this process and he is finding that he has become more invisible to people and it amazed him. When he was 140kgs people automatically got out of his way when he was walking. Now he is approaching a more normal weight of 90kgs he has to negotiate the footpaths like everyone else. At first he didn't like it but now he is taking it as a positive response to his weight loss. As an older woman I have become invisible to a lot of people but I admit you do get right of way when walking when you are larger in size. I may still get it as I am often with my Mum and she uses a mobility scooter. Only nutty Asian ladies leap in front of her.
I am not going to sleep early enough at the moment. I am not sure if my thyroxin is too high with my weight being lower. I shall get it checked with the next blood test. I shall have to keep the exercise level going and take my tablets earlier in the day. Might have them in my nightstand and take them when I first wake. I'll try that and see if there is a difference in when I feel like going to sleep. Last night I read a whole book and did not go to sleep till 6 a.m. this morning. I was up again at 10 a.m. Exercise early in the day helps sleep later so they say (the invisible THEY). Of course Pinterest might be the problem too. I am hooked on that.
