So I am trying to not focus on the scale -- although, so far, the numbers have been nice. No weighing in every day, etc. I am weighing in once a week on Wednesdays. I am trying to focus on how I feel as my weight decreases and what I have to look forward to as I lose weight and/or inches.
What I am really looking forward to is shopping in my own closet. I have lots of cute clothes that I don't wear because they haven't fit since I became pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago. Luckily, I stay away from anything too trendy so most of the stuff is still in style.
I am looking forward to starting the beach season without feeling like a beached whale on the beach -- where we spend the majority of our time in June/July. With more energy, I can (almost) keep up with my three kids while we enjoy everything the shore has to offer -- although I don't see myself skimboarding or surfing anytime soon!
I feel a sense of optimism that I have not had in over 4 1/2 years. I feel like maybe, just maybe, I am getting it right this time and finding my way back to the healthy person I was before my beautiful mop head daughter arrived. (Still worth every ounce I gained and then some...)
Just some random thoughts from when I was on the treadmill this morning.....
