When I think that Im beginning my second year on this weight loss journey it just amazes me. I haven't grown weary of it and I haven't quit. I have no idea what sparked the change in me this time but last January when I made the decision to get healthy I stuck with it. I went to the doctor yesterday and she noticed right away that I had lost. That was a good feeling. My blood work isn't back yet but I'm hoping my good cholesterol is up.
Overall I feel good about this journey. I'm also feeling a thrill of excitement at the thought of what I will be weighing next year this time. If you look at my monthly losses you will see a very slow weight loss yet it netted me 40 pounds by years end. If that's all I lose this year I would weigh 170. That just seems unreal to me. I think there just comes a time in life where a sort of calm falls over one and the things that are really important are all that matter. Usually that calm happens after 40. I can honestly say my first reason to lose weight is for my health.
When that is the reason its not so hard to eat right. Its also not such a huge issue when the scales doesn't move. I love the place I find myself on this journey.
Speaking of scales hubby bought one of those scales this weekend that weigh body fat and BMI and hydration and all. I step on it just for the kicks but I still like my old weight balanced one better. There's something about the clanging of the weights settling into place that does the heart good.
Well I better get back to work. I just thought Id check in here for a little and chat. Hope you all are having a wonderful weight loss week. Here's a toast to good health for you all.
