Wow... I am almost shocked to admit that I am surprised... Pleasantly, happily... but definitely surprised. More than shocked that I am here already, I am shocked that I already feel significantly better about myself and how I look... how I feel.
I have more energy.
I can do normal "classroom" work at school and not feel like a sweaty mess.
I can wear my skinny, never-gonna-fit pants again, that were sitting at the bottom of my drawer hanging out because I never had the time to go through and send stuff to Goodwill. Good thing, too - cuz otherwise I wouldn't have pants.
The clothes that fit *perfectly* when I inherited them from my mother-in-law (who recently lost 60 pounds) are headed back to my sister-in-law. Because they are too big. But will fit her... and I get some new clothes - the ones that my mother-in-law now doesn't fit... but were her middle of weight-loss clothes.
And kind of scary!
Mostly, though, because I wonder why I haven't done this sooner. I guess I wasn't ready. But really - it is about HEALTH... and it is never too late to start!
And my funny story from today: My mom's labradoodle now weighs the same amount that I have lost. I have lost the weight of a 3 month old puppy. Go me! One less "pooch" to carry around ;-)
