I can't believe how much has changed in one month. I have gone from feeling winded walking up my stairs and my ankles and knees hurting when I walked down them, barely moving all day, and living on a vicious cycle of eating/guilt to waking up and being ready to get my work-out in, being active all day, going up and down my stairs without giving them much thought, planning delicious meals and feeling no guilt because I know I'm putting good things into my body and eating the correct portions. I don't wear pajamas or sweats all day because my jeans hurt. I wear smaller jeans and they don't hurt to wear them all day. I see a hint of collarbones, my legs and bottom are firmer, my stomach is smaller (although quite jiggly) and I've learned my feet didn't really grow. They were just too pudgy to fit into my old size shoes. And, one last one...don't laugh too hard. I need more water in my bath. I ran my bath and climbed in yesterday to notice that, OMG!, my bathtub wasn't full enough.
I have a very long road ahead of me but I thought I should take some time to write down what's great right now. If I feel this much better in just one month, I can't imagine how great the months, and years, to come are going to feel! Thank you Sparks for showing me my way.
