I don't totally know why I'm so in shock...
I stepped on the scale this morning and I'm down another 2 pounds!! WHAAAT!!
It's been an amazing journey so far and tonight demonstrated how important this community is for me.
I was on a bike ride and had to come up a couple of large hills...it felt like mountains and I found myself chanting 'Just one pedal at a time...just one step at a time...it's not about the destination but the journey...' and do you know that I made it up both of those hills without stopping or walking!
It's a double whoo hoo day! Triple, if I count that my daughter made the bike trip down into town with me before the rest of the family picked her up and I biked back on my own. We talked about health and exercising and cardio.... She's only 7 but I feel like I'm passing on such amazing knowledge that I've gained through Sparkpeople instead of a bunch of body and self esteem issues.
I definitely feel the contagious optimism that I've picked up here gaining momentum and that makes me SO happy!!
