Getting there

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

This last weekend I met up with a group of people that I hadn't seen since October. They immediately noticed that I had lost weight and I must admit it was quite an esteem booster. Though I have been a little tough on myself, I really must admit last year I would have killed to be at 185 (which is what I weighed in at this morning). Stepping back from my frustration I realize that what I am doing is working. I am feeling great, I am eating healthy and I'm actually having fun with my exercise routine (Wii Zumba). I really need to stop putting emphasis on what that damn scale says, because no matter how fast I get there, I am getting there. I can't help but acknowledge the scale and the BMI, but I need to stop acting like they're the only means of measurement. Today @ 185 I am OVERWEIGHT instead of OBESE according to the BMI. This is the first time in over 10 years that I am at this weight and I can't wait to keep going. It's good to know that my "frustrating status" is over for now anyway. When/if I fall back into it maybe I'll be able to look at this blog and realize the big steps I've made. Thank you to everyone who has encouraged me to get this far and to keep going. I am getting there :)
