just how much progress I've made. I still struggle sometimes with really knowing how I look. I often feel as if I've made no progress, that I'm just as heavy as I used to be, that those 67 pounds have crept back on and I'm fooling myself to think I'm really smaller, more fit.
Then today comes along. My director needed assistance taking a bunch of materials to a presentation. She was going to ask my male co-worker when I volunteered to grab an additional dolley and take them. It was too beautiful to stay inside, and besides I'm strong now. I no longer "need a man" to do it for me.
About 1/2 way through the presentation they called to say they needed more materials - another full box. A co-worker helped me assemble the packets and away I went, hurrying across campus with the dolley in tow. I didn't realize until I was done and back in the office just how quickly I was able to complete the task and I WASN'T OUT OF BREATH! Last year I would have been out of breath, 13 months ago I would have "needed a man" to do it for me. I would not have thought twice about sending my male co-worker with it.
I think I'm rather pleased....
