So far so ?
Saturday, July 02, 2011
So far I have lost over 50 pounds over the last few years and my weight has stabilized. The bad news is my weight has stabilized with about 10 more pounds to go. There are weeks I loose 2 or 3 pound and then I gain then back again.
Physically I feel good. This year I did the 10k Rhody Run and the 10 mile Cape mountain Run. I have come so far even over the last year. The bad news, I have a stomach that looks like a deflated beach ball. I made the mistake of looking down the other day when I was doing push ups. My stomach was about hitting the ground when my arms were straight. Really sexy, right?
Today, somebody reminded me about all the weight I have lost. I should feel great, but I reminds me of why I gained it in the first place. So many wasted years of being unhealthy. I know I should look to the future and not in the past.
Tomorrow, I might take a break from jogging and go kayaking instead or maybe walk my dog. I will watch what I eat. Most important, I will remind myself that I should be proud of what I have accomplished so far and not obsess about my stomach!!
