Day 382- Random Thoughts

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

I don't really have much to say today. These are more just ramblings because I hate going more than a few days without being active on SP.

I think I'm almost over my cold. Still have some lingering sniffles and coughs but for the most part much better than a week ago.

I'm getting to the point in my journey where I really don't recognize myself in the mirror. It's not a bad thing, but I just haven't been this thin in a while. I took a photo of myself in black and white on my camera and I realized how much different I look from a year ago.



I look back on photos and don't really see who I am now. It's just a very weird feeling.

Also, my size 12 jeans are getting pretty lose. I only have one pair of size 10s currently, but I'm thinking I might buy a few more over winter break. The day I fit into a size 8, I will probably cry.

If I am completely honest, I don't ever remember being a single digit size. When I was in middle school, I was already a size 10 or 12.

And I've just noticed that I have much more will power when it comes to food. I went to the coffee shop today and just got a hot chocolate made from skim milk. I would usually have also gotten one of the giant iced sugar cookies and ham and cheese croissants. But I just saw fat and empty calories. It was really nice to not feel like I NEEDED those.

Also, I haven't been tracking exactly but I'm still seeing a constant number or decrease on the scale so that's awesome.

Went for a short run today, but the cold is just killing me, so I think I'm going to start using the school rec center to run.

Nothing much else to say. Thanks for reading my random ramblings.

    Awesome job on your progress!!

You surely are an inspiration emoticon

I totally agree about taking a rest day with your cold- better safe than sorry!

I've read an article before about how people who lose a lot of weight have a hard time adjusting mentally to their new body. It's like the mind can't keep up with all the physical changes. I think you're already one step ahead by being aware of all the changes =)

    Good for you. Love those non-scale victories. Size 8 jeans is going to be the most awesome day ever. I recently bought a pair of size 6 dress slacks and I was in shock. But then on the same day, a pair of jeans in a different brand, I couldn't fit anything smaller than a 10. The differences in sizes between brands sometimes is frustrating, but then I remind myself how healthy I look and don't care so much about the number on the tag.

    Running in cold whether when your respiratory system is compromised isn't a good idea. Keeping the running indoors until you're all the way over that cold is wise.
