The I'm over halfway there blog
Friday, November 18, 2011
I blogged when I made it a 1/4 of the way.
I probably should blog when I make it half way. But I missed. I made it half way a week ago. I think maybe I have been avoiding this because I didn't know what to write.
I think I am supposed to be writing about emotional eating this week anyway, something for the stage of spark that I am in.
But yes... I can do it all at once, right?
In the last 1/4 of the way:
I suddenly looked skinnier.
All over, but mostly in my face. My double chin doesn't have a double chin.
I bought new pants.
They are now too big.
I put new holes in my belt.
I am now on the second of the new holes.
I saw onederland for the first time in a LONG time.
And I am staying in this one-derful place.
I ate fast food for breakfast one morning.
And then nearly threw up it made my stomach feel so icky.
(read: my body is used to HEALTHY food!)
I can't imagine going a day without eating something fresh and tasty.
I can chase my daughter around the house almost as long as my husband can.
I work out regularly.
And I LIKE it.
But really what was exciting today was that I am no longer obese. Yes. That is right. I have made it into the "overweight" category. I have never been so happy to be considered overweight. I mean, seriously, it is an odd thing to be happy that you are overweight, but I guess it is all about perspective. Which end of overweight did you just hit. Are you headed upwards, or downwards?
I should take some new pictures... maybe someday soon :-)
Oh - and the emotional eating thing I am supposed to blog about. I have discovered that it really isn't that big of an issue for me - I just used it as an excuse to snack. But if I don't think about it, I don't do it. Weird. I know. Not trying to sound arrogant. but I guess it isn't my big issue! i have many. That one just isn't it!
