Life is but a dream...

Thursday, November 29, 2012

And it definitely feels like I've been dreaming lately, as I have FINALLY emerged from my tunnel and achieved my goal of losing 120 pounds. Although I'm still 10% above where I should be on the BMI, I'm in the normal range for fat percentage, cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and all that. I may revisit the weight goal at a later date, but right now, I'm happy with where I am.

Granted, yes, I do plan on losing another 5 pounds before Christmas, but that's more of a pre-emptive strike, since my mom doesn't cook as healthy as I do, and I won't be able to work out as much as I normally do that week. Although the goal will be to keep those pounds off, I don't want to be trapped by that kind of thinking.

Now, I just have to let my mind catch up to where my body is. I still look in the mirror and marvel at how I look, because it just doesn't seem real at times. Is that REALLY me getting ready for work? Is that REALLY me doing those bicep curls?

So until the reality of it hits that it truly is me, I'll just enjoy the dream. Of course, the dream includes me continuing to eat healthy and exercise. Otherwise, it would be a nightmare, and we don't want THAT, now, do we? emoticon

Have a happy Thursday, everyone!

    Don't wake up! Keep on enjoying this beautiful dream. Feeling that your everyday life is as beautiful as a dream is even better than an actual dream, right? What makes it even more wonderful is that you know what you have to do to stay away from nightmares!

    Congratulations!! :) How wonderful. I've lost the same amount as you, and I agree - sometimes it just feels like a wonderful dream. I love it! It's SO NICE to not fear going to the doctor any more, because I know I'm super healthy now!

Way to go, and enjoy your fresh and healthy body! :)

I know how you feel. I'm in the normal range at last, would still like to lose a few, and have difficulty appreciating how far I've come and how much I've achieved.

Keep looking in the mirror, it IS you!

And keep up the inspiration, you'll never know how many others you're helping.
