Sunday, February 17, 2013--Reflections

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Today is a day of reflection for me. I started this journey 5 weeks ago and these are the changes I have noticed:

I have almost lost 8 pounds in the first 4 weeks.

It is getting easier to go work out. I want to work out and do not feel as good if I miss working out. I don't know why I haven't done this before now.

My husband noticed the change in my face. I am noticing it elsewhere as in my arms, stomach and chest areas. I also am not as moody as I was before. Being overweight and eating a poor diet had changed me. I now seem to be going back to the person I use to be.

I crave water and enjoy drinking it. When we go out to eat I order water and ask for refills. I am only drinking water and fat free milk now. I tried diet soda last Saturday and didn't like the taste of it and it gave me a headache. I also have a lot of self control and say no to things I shouldn't be eating.

I have changed my spark page photo to one from high school. That is what we are doing this week.

Looking forward to the rest of the journey.

    Yay!!! Little changes can be the best, eh? It's motivating to hear you feel so good about yourself - it will only get better with time. Best of luck on your journey!
