I really did it.
I want to put an exclamation mark at the end of that sentence, yet somehow I just feel like, "Damn. I did it." Feels good, surprising, crazy. It's the sort of thing you not your head slightly to with a little smile on your face to.
I reached my initial goal weight.
I stepped up to stage 3- lifestyle chances.
I am at level six with my points.
*nodding and grinning*
I CAN do 30 minutes or even 40 min on the elliptical...which has seemed completely beyond me for, well, my entire life.
I'm lifting weights and feeling even stronger. I
feeling strong. I've always been strong but just never thought to take it to the next level.
I fit into my sister's skinny jeans! She has always been the slim one. Now we've traded positions. Weird, weird and really weird.
HOLY MOLEY! I think I just referred to myself as slim!!! Now THAT deserves an exclamation mark
(and I just said 'holy moley' hahaha)
I don't have face to face contact with anyone on here but just knowing that there are people out there trying to be healthy and happy is nice. It's comforting to know there are positive things happening in the world.
I read the following moving up to stage 3 and it really touched me. It's the first time a tear has formed for something happy and positive instead of sad and frustrating in a long time:
"If you remember anything, remember to be prepared to change more than your gym membership or whatís in your cupboard. Be ready to change something about yourself or your life that will clear the way to reaching your full potential. (Now, thatís something to get excited about!) Keep an open mind, and most of all, donít be hard on yourself. Be your own #1 fan instead. Give yourself permission to be imperfect, but at the same time, give yourself permission to be wonderful."
I'm really excited!!!
