I had so much fun yesterday. Six of us went to Los Angeles to see Dirty Dancing on stage. As the day went by I had noticed several different things about myself that I can say are the result of my new lifestyle changes. First of all, there wasn't any anxiety about how I would manage getting around. Before I would have had a difficult time getting in and out of my friend's van and also being strangled by the seat belt once I did manage to climb into the back seat. Of course there would have been worry about how much walking I would have to do to get from the parking lot. Once inside stairs and seating would have been painful. Sitting in a seat with the armrests digging into my butt and worrying if I was spilling over into the next to me was always embarrassing.
Now I can say that I can just go and have a great time. Just like everyone else.
It felt fabulous. The other change I noticed is that in spite of me being pretty cheap when it comes to eating out . I only ate until I was full and left the rest. That is a big change for me because before I would have made sure to polish off everything on my plate. You know I have a hard time wasting food, I still do, but I am working on that one. Last of all after seeing myself in the group picture, I can say that I am proud that I am not twice as big as everyone else anymore.
