I was reading Geminisue's blog-one of my butterfly sisters-about the little things bringing inspiration. I instantly related to what she was stating. I am always amazed when I discover something new about what I can do or how I look. Maybe I have trained myself not to look in store windows and mirrors. What a change from the time I would glance frequently at them.
I began this journey because of my belly. I was gaining way too much belly fat. Health hazard! But, what upset me was that it interfered with my gardening. Honestly, it was that bad. So one day when I glanced into a store window and discovered I actually had a waist-what a lovely surprise. Today I began the 28 Day Challenge and in the video Nicole has you bend forward and touch the floor. Really didn't think much about it until I realized I was touching the hardwood floor.
To some this is probably not that amazing, but to me it is these little things that inspire me to dream of someday maybe looking like the picture of the woman from the Kettle Bell team. It will be okay if I never met that perfection but I can now dream-something I let go of long ago.
I am willing to continue to be a proud member of the Slowest Looser Team knowing it is finishing the race that is the most important thing to me and along every step of the way the little things will continue to inspire me to dream.
