I'm finally at the weight I've been claiming as mine for years!
I didn't think it would be that big a deal to see those numbers but I whooped so loud, I scared the cat!
The last time I was this weight(18 yrs ago), I thought I was as big as a house...I hated buying clothes and wore black and baggy oversized everything. Today, I'm bright and fitted to show off my new curves.
I'm a size 16 (was a 22)and I'm getting close to 14 (I can close those jeans but the muffin top is frightening lol) and I'm fitter than I've ever been. After 8 months of eating right and exercising almost daily, I think I can officially claim this new lifestyle as mine. It's funny how today grabbing a bottle of water for my walk is my norm when 8 months ago, a walk would just never have happened. It doesn't surprise me any more when I feel super draggy because I haven't worked out. Seeing myself in the mirror does surprise me at times...I look like me these days...it's been a long time since the person in the mirror fit the picture in my head.
Today really feels like success :)
