I'm just 68 lbs from my goal, that is for ideal weight (guess of 160 lbs.) though only 28 lbs from the goal of 200!
But hey, I'm way lighter and stronger than I was before.. and also 72 lbs lighter than when I started.. Yup.. halfway.. No, MORE than halfway. And it isn't very good for me to keep looking at how much farther the journey is. MOSTLY I am just appreciating where I am now.
I am enjoying the journey now.. I am feeling so much better - so much lighter and stronger, and more energetic, and healthier! I like my body so much more! I know it's working and I'm making my body better every day!!
Today I was trying to give my son a debrief after a time-out and he was messing with my legs right under my knees with his toes as I sat on his bed across from the chair he was in. I told him to leave my fat legs alone. He said, "Mommy, I was just thinking they're not so fat any more. They look much better now." He blew me away.
I thanked him and stayed serious about the reason he'd had a time out (which was that I said NO he couldn't go outside until he got dressed and he immediately turned and went outside still in his pjs, totally ignoring me.) I called him back in with a "RED" and time out for that blatant disobedience. Which you know what.. I think he appreciated me being consistent and knowing what was the boundary. He didn't seems surprised or enraged at an unjust situation either, as he sometimes does.
BUT.. the thing he said to me really stuck with me about my legs not being so fat under my knees. I carry so much weight in my upper legs and it really shows at and right above my knees.. I wonder if that's true or he was just trying to calm me down. Haha.. I think it's true AND he was trying to distract me. So maybe it's true. In fact, it's probably true, since I'm down so much now.. it may be noticable there, too.
Here's an afformation (a question that points to the goal)..
How did Angel get such great legs so easily and naturally?
How did Angel get to her ideal weight and enjoy the journey, too?
Mostly.. it's because of having the support of my Sparkfriends! :) Thank you!
