I find that I must remind myself constantly, over and over, day after day that I can do this. It is going to take time.
But I DON'T WANT IT TO TAKE TIME!
I'm so tired of being
Yet, I'm close to a 10lb weight loss. Close but not yet there. Now some may scoff at a lousy 10lbs, but I'm overjoyed. Already I can tell a difference in my jeans and some shirts hang a little looser. I'm eating better. I'm drinking scads of water. I drink so much now, I wonder how I managed to only drink 1 McDonalds Sweet Tea in a day. Oh yes, I would drink only 1 and nothing else. Or how I drank 1 44oz Mt. Dew Freeze from Speedway in a day. Now it seems I'm forever refilling my very large glass. I consume well beyond the
glasses of water daily.
I've always been fairly flexible, could still turn cartwheels in 2004 before my brain surgery. Now, unfortunately, that's out of the question...for a myriad of reasons but not because of weight. I used to be able to touch my nose to the floor while doing middle stretches but because of gaining more weight, I can't do THAT anymore. I'm working towards touching my nose on the floor. I'm close to that too. I'm about 4" from getting there! With my back fusion, I have to be so careful. But this
is stretching that I can do and will eventually accomplish.
It is these things that I have accomplished just in January that I MUST REMIND MYSELF on a daily basis. No, I don't want to be fat anymore. But, at least I've have taken that first step. . .I have started down the correct path.
