Today is a good day! Today is uplifting and makes me feel like I am getting some where finally after a month of the scale not moving and it moving up eghh today has rejuvinated my motivation and re inforced my choice to not eat the yummy chocolate carrot cake thats in our conference room and instead reach for my bag of green apple slices
So I guess I better explain... It started yesterday, as soon as I walked in and was talking to one of my co workers she said Oh my gosh Bri your face is so skinny! Naturally she assumed it was because Ive been sick for the past five days and unable to eat much but I prefer to chalk it up to my hard work
and than today I hit the mother load of all "motivation pushers" LOL! I went into the lunch room to fill up my water cup (BY the way as of 11 AM I have Had 9 Glasses of clear liqud joy
!!!!) and I saw one of the guys from IT in there and this is how the convo went...
ME: " Hi how have you been"
IT GUY: "Good Bri, How are you"
ME: "Oh good Ive been sick last week but feeling much better
IT Guy: " Well those lunches of yours are really paying of you look great"
Me: pause.. do a happy dance in my head.. " Oh! Thanks so much" ..huge smile on my face.. "Ive been working hard, still have a ways to go but I feel great"
IT GUY: " Is it just the lunches or are you doing something else
Me: " I just have been trying to be healthy, I dont really want to be skinny just strong, I go to the gym every morn. and eat healthy chocice meals for lunch they really help my portion control."
IT GUY: " Well its wokring you look great! How much are you planning to lose"
Me: Im thinnking I want to lose about 50 lbs all together, Ive already lost 25"
IT Guy: "Oh so your half way there, great job and again you look great. Maybe I should start eating those meals lol"
Okay so you get the point LOL!! I feel so happy and amazing! Someone I never would expect to say something did! I just need to take a moment and say....
This conversation not only uplifted me and completly re enforced my positive energy today but it also opened my eyes and made me realize that Im pretty much HALF WAY to my goal weight!!! That means if I just stick to it by the begining of summer I will be bikini ready!!
Im so excited and I just cant hide it!! I saw an old friend that I havnt seen since May on Sat. night and she was blown away by how I looked also. Everyone keeps saying you look great! ahhh thank you very much, no picutres please
I know attitude is everything in this journey so I am officially going to have a positive attitude all the time! and of course it helps when people re enforce your feelings. I feel great and I dont tjust think its the weight people notice, my face and skin is much clearer and even my hair seems to be shinner. Being Healthy Rocks!!!!!
Friends, Im gonna go finish my apple slices
