My inner Goddess is happy just the way she is

Monday, October 15, 2012

I realized this morning that if I lost no more weight and maintained where I am right now, I would be happy for the rest of my life.
Height: 5'4"
Starting weight: 213, Current weight: 171
Starting size: 18, Current size: 12
Starting fitness: Couldn't walk fast; couldn't go up stairs without stopping and breathing hard at the top (my heart felt like it was coming out of my chest), I had no muscle mass (I was a blob) and my knees wouldn't support anything I did.
Current fitness:
I can trot a 5K in under 45 minutes (I wouldn't say run as of yet) emoticon
I can run up stairs without shortness of breath emoticon
I can get on the floor to play with my grandbaby and jump up when she takes off emoticon
I can do an advanced 60 minute spinning class emoticon
and best of all, I have muscles!!! and I can see them! emoticon

So if my weight stayed the same, my body stayed the same and my fitness level stayed the same would I be happy???

HELL YES!!!!!!!! emoticon

But will I stop? Nope

I am involved in a weightloss challenge that pays money for the biggest looser emoticon
I am curious how low of a pants size I can get in (I would love to steal my daughter-in-laws cloths emoticon
I still have my bye bye arms to deal with (you know the part of your arm that keeps waving bye bye even after you have stopped.
And most of all, I am having fun challenging myself to do a little bit more each and every day. I keep surprising myself.
I was walking down the hall way at work today (at a pretty good pace) and realized how fast I could walk and how good my body felt in motion.
I never want to stop feeling this.
