Some happy weight-loss related thoughts this Monday:
I no longer am double the weight of my almost-13-year-old twins! They weight just over 100 lbs. and I’m under half of their weight.
I ran into someone at the store on Friday who used to walk regularly at a gym I went to. We commented on how we haven’t been there in a long time, but I said my reason is because I have been going to the gym at the base. They both himmed and hawed about how they just got busy in the summer and hardly go anymore. It felt good to know that my not going to that particular gym since last spring was only the result of my changing gyms, not quitting my exercise. How many times have I been those ladies in the past? Lots.
My slip is getting so big that it hangs and buckles under my skirts. It’s starting to bug me, but it’s also a fun reminder that I’m losing weight!!
I only want one candy in my stocking ( a Reese’s PB tree) and no more. My husband has agreed to do my stocking this year. (yay for him!) The fact that I’m not drooling over how much candy I can buy and eat is another sign of change in my healthiness attitude.
I’ll stop there for today. I hope you’re week is off to a good start. Maybe you can take a few minutes to stop and jot down some happy thoughts about your weight loss journey this week. If you feel you don’t have any, then pick one unhappy one and see if you can turn that proverbial frown upside down.
That’s what this is all about – one day at a time, one step at a time. Have a good one!
