apple to hourglass?
Tuesday, July 26, 2011
I remember being in my twenties and even early thirties and having a concave belly when I lay on the floor. I remember looking in the mirror and seeing a body that I was'nt happy with then but would cry with joy over now. I've been looking at my naked self over the last couple of years and thinking that , at times, if I painted myself red I could be a stand-in for the fruit of the loom commercials.
Somehow I never really made the connection between the dieting and the exercise . When i was younger i never needed a planned exercise life to keep me looking my best. I've always done physical work so I depended on that . Only now do I realize that having an exercising plan already in place and a good habit might have saved me the long transformation now. I know I'll never get my old young body back.But exercising and working hard on eating right has begun to improve my naked self. Although the scale is'nt moving as fast as i would like I am seeing changes that I like. My belly is retreating a tiny bit every week. I'm getting tighter in places that I thought could be used for parasailing. Dare I hope to go from and apple to an hourglass? Only time and steady habits will tell. For now I only know I will soon have to look alot harder to find that apple in the mirror, and that is enough for me to keep me working on it....
