Wow. Amazing what a good night's sleep can do!! I feel refreshed, restored.... I LOST WEIGHT!! I am learning to love this sleep thing. I sleep, I lose weight. Okay not always. But I have noticed just how closely the two are tied together. When my sleep stalls, my weight loss stalls.
I use to think sleep was for lazy people. The "sleep when I'm dead" thing was my motto I guess. After all my kids were born, and I was trying to raise a family and build a business, there just wasn't time for sleep and that is when the pounds started packing on. (I had wanted to gain a little when I was younger but that isn't part of this story)
So anyways.... Yeah I slept!! Yeah I lost weight!!! Yeah my calories and macros where right on track!!! My calories have been on the low side by the end of the day, so I tried to stay on top of that yesterday. I also got in a nice 45 minute Zumba with a friend.
I am just feeling amazing. I was sitting here at the computer last night, just feeling happy. I can't remember just feeling happy. Dont get me wrong, I have lots to be thankful for and lots I should be happy about. Amazing husband. Amazing home. Amazing kids. Amazing family. I should be happy. But my weight just pulled me down... literally.
But last night, I just felt different. I felt like I have figured out the secret for my own personal weight loss, I feel like I have got this under control and I am just unstoppable. It just makes me happy that I have figured it out before it was too late. It makes me happy to be losing weight, which means eating right, which means feeling so much better about everything. It makes me happy that I am reconnecting with my old self, the woman that has amazing strength and resilience, the one that makes up her mind to do something and then does it! The woman that is always on the Make It Happen program!!!
My friends all think I am 24/7 happy. There was a time not that long ago, it was 24/7 unhappy - and all because of my weight. I am sooooo happy those days are behind me.
My wish for all my Sparkfriends, is to get your happy on!
