And the verdict is....

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

182.5 today. I weighed 209.4lbs on July 4th of this year. I'm 27lbs down and I can't believe it. I'm so happy I could cry!!! I'm really doing it. I really am. I'm becoming a new person without gimmicks, diets, starvation, crazy flushes, or anything artificial. Just purely watching what crosses my lips and moving my body. The weight has been coming off extra slow these days, but surprisingly I've been content with that. I can walk up flights of stairs and only feel my legs warm up instead of my entire body sweating as I gasp for air. It's not a big deal to park as close to the entrance anymore. I can purchase clothing at any store. I'm no longer hesitant to go out when invited. I can wear close-fitting clothing without feeling like a sausage wrapped too tight. I can walk with my head level rather than watching the ground. I know that my concern with my appearance is just my pride shining through. I can exercise. I can run. I can do chest compressions effectively on any pt who needs it without getting overly winded. I can look at myself in the mirror in just my undies and smile. I can see my curves being unmasked. I can see my muscles flex when I move. I can see my stomach getting smaller. I can see how people approach me more easily. I can see a happier person who loves themselves enough not to poison their body. I can see ME when I haven't for such a long time. And I see all of you sweating it out with me so you can see yourselves. Overwhelmed and overjoyed. Chris, thanks for creating Sparkpeople. My life will never be the same.

    AWESOME rewards for AWESOME efforts!

    Check out my latest blog for the science behind the challenges for obese / morbidly obese to lose AND MAINTAIN that loss...I found it helpful toward re-dedicating myself to such efforts.
