I'm having fun!


Monday, February 04, 2013

I'm having fun with this new life of mine. It's fun to get new clothes and have them fit. Even more fun is getting new clothes and having them be a bit TOO BIG! I do have a hard time knowing what size to get. Since I buy nearly everything online, I order what seems to be the correct size, but my new pants are a bit loose. And I was afraid they'd be too tight! That's fun.
And it's fun to make a quick stop at our clubhouse just to pick up something and have several people stop me and tell me I look fantastic. That's REALLY a lot of fun.
And even though I'm still addicted to getting on the scales, even that is fun these days. I posted 96 lbs lost on SP, but today the scales showed 98 lbs. gone. Since I fluctuate so much, I don't post a loss unless it shows up a couple of days in a row. But watch out--I just might make that 100 lbs. by Valentine's Day.
And I'm having fun learning to cook healthy. I found a new show on TV that I really like; it's called Hungry Girl. She not only gives recipes for healthy versions of favorite dishes, but she also gives tips on how to eat in a restaurant or as a guest where you have little or no control over the menu. That program is a perfect complement to my SP program. It comes on the FOOD network at 8:30 a.m., which isn't a convenient time for me, so I set my DVR to record it whenever it's on--that way I don't have to miss a single episode. It's fun to learn new recipes and ideas for healthy eating.
And lastly, it's fun when I exercise--not to feel exhausted and worn out, but to feel like I could push to do just a little more in my routine. That's a first for me--me who has ALWAYS hated exercise. I'm actually fantasizing about being able to race-walk miles again.
Life is fun these days, and I'm enjoying each minute of it. I'm sure there will be bumps along the way, but for now, I am very, very happy. Life is good, and it looks like I'll be around to enjoy it for a long, long time.

    I AM TRULY LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY WHEN I ENJOY EXERCISE. IT HAS BEEN NEARLY 20 YEARS NOW SINCE I COULD BE REALLY ACTIVE AND EVERY DAY'S EXERCISE SESSION IS PAINFUL AND MUCH DREADED. AND EVEN AFTER A 54 POUND LOSS, MY CLOTHING STILL FITS SO NO SHOPPING YET. MAYBE IN TIME FOR SUMMER, BUT NOT NOW.
