I DID IT!
I got on the scale.
And I did it.
As of today, I am officially 40 pounds lighter than I was 5 months ago. It is an absolute feeling of pure joy. All this hard work is really paying off and even though while I am panting and feeling like I am going to die with each exercise, I am loving every second of it. I am slowly changing for a “cannot/will not” to a “I can/will do”.
Today, I have walked 1.5 miles, done the 30 Day Shred with Jillian Michaels (love her), and also gone horse back riding. Before, I would have done just one of those things, and sometimes, not even that. I was very good at finding excuses, and I would always feel guilty for making those excuses. Now unless I am feeling really sick (aka seeing double, fever, can’t leave the bathroom kinda sick), I always exercise. I love how it makes me feel, and I cannot believe it took this long to figure it out.
I am still trying to drink lots of water and am still being very careful of what I eat (this week feels a lot longer… is it really only Tuesday?!). I am hoping to continue to go strong as we hit the end of the month.
Every day is starting to feel like a success. I am finding a lot more to be happy about, and I don’t mean in terms of just my weight and such… I am just finding that I am less depressed. The sun always seems to shine a little brighter. I find more reason to laugh and smile…
The only thing I am really worried about is…
Not getting my license before my trip. I was a complete idiot and ended up losing my license somewhere… and well, you kind of need photo ID to get on the big metal bird. My trip is in 2 weeks… so I am really hoping it gets here in time. The lady said she was would try to put a rush on it… but I am so worried it is not going to happen. Why did I have to lose my license?
But I am trying not to worry. I am hoping for the best. Please nice DMV Lady and all the License Faeries, please let me get my license in time…
