OK - I am done here!

Friday, May 06, 2011

I really did not have that much weight to lose to start with and I have not lost all I wanted, but I think my main focus has to be exercising regularly and staying fit.
I would like very much to tone the body so I could show off my muscles a bit more, and that is what I will try to do in stead of focusing on the weight loss. emoticon
Must say I am ok with my body and myself at the moment but if the weight drops some kg,s more I would not complain. emoticon

Think I had an epiphany today at the store;
We had been walking for a couple of hours and went in to get some stuff on the way home. I was not tired at all and when I picked up the 6pack of 1liter milk cartons = 6 kg (12 something pounds) I felt like I could have carried another pack as well. Carried it for maybe 1/2 hour and did not get tired or had to switch arms. WOW! On the way home I even used it as a weight and did some shoulder lifts to see how long I could on doing it. ALL THE WAY!
I am not telling this to brag, just wanted to write down the fantastic progress I have made while here on SP. Some months ago I would not have been able to carry this with the same hand for many minutes.
So even if the scale still does not totally agree with me - I have changed.

Of course I am not leaving SP! I just change directions or focus.
Now I will put up other goals like running faster and longer, and concentrate on the fitness and health, all with the help of SP.
