Feeling Good :)

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Just a quick little blog so I can record this feeling for posterity...

I AM IN CONTROL!

And it feels incredible. I'm at the top of my healthy BMI range, and slowly but surely moving my way to the middle part of my healthy BMI range. My birthday is tomorrow, so I know this weekend isn't going to be the friendliest for the waistline, but I'm not worried. For the first time in a long time, I don't automatically feel terrible after I eat something that's not the greatest decision. I think that's the type of non-guilt that comes with finally building a healthy relationship with my body-- and turning this into a LIFESTYLE.

For the first time, I'm not chasing perfection-- I'm more than happy with progress (no matter how little)! I will keep celebrating the very minor victories (scale and non-scale).

Speaking of NSV-- went to The LOFT last weekend and was COMFORTABLY in size 4s. Woot! I call them my tiny pants-- I wonder what I will call my size 2s :)

I hope all you Sparkies out there are having a great week!

-Erin

    My motto has been "Persistence, not perfection." I like how you said it, "...I'm not chasing perfection-- I'm more than happy with progress..." I need to adopt this and celebrate the smaller victories instead of looking at the bigger picture. Great idea.

Hope you are having a wonderful day, celebrating your birthday.
