Making Progress. Every. Single. Day.

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…

  1. Yay! For being 40 lbs lighter! it is weird how exercise just becomes a normal part of your day huh? I am very happy for you and proud of you!
    Boo! for your lost licence, but it will be there in time. don’t worry πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you! And it is… I never thought I would be one to feel antsy if I did not do some form of physical activity… now I want to be doing something pretty much all the time. =) And I know! I can’t believe I lost it so close to a trip… I am keeping my fingers crossed! Or else I am going to be driving because I am going on that vacation one way or another! haha

    • Thank you! Still have a long ways to go, but something about 40 pounds makes me believe I can definitely do it now! And I know… I can’t believe I lost it in one outing. Unfortunately, I really have to rely on getting my license in time. But I am definitely getting a passport this summer!
