I still can't believe I can shop in any store I want now. I'm no longer plus sized. I wear a size 10 or 12!

my surprise came when I started riding my bike in the summer, and it kept taking me less and less time, even though I kept adding distance

My sticker shock is that I can easily run a mile, when just 6 months ago I could only run for about 30 seconds.

No, I am hoping that it will come some day. I am staying on track and doing all that I am supposed to do I think.

I can do this!

You've heard the term sticker shock. You see the price of something and about faint. So where in your healthy life style journey have you had sticker shock........? For me it is several things. One is that it is hard to believe that I can do calf raises with 66 lbs. of weight on my barbell. Or do 50 lb. squats with my barbell. Also stepping on the scales and see what I actually weight........WOW.........So what is your sticker shock.....?
