Celebrating today!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I've decided to CeleBrate today!

I have been maintaining my loss from last December! I would be happy to lose perhaps 2-4 more #'s BUT I can honestly say, I am HAPPY now!

This week at BLC is our midway point, and we were asked to be introspective about our progress. I was & found a startling discovery!

The miracle of 2013 for me ( and it IS a miracle) is that I am HAPPY with maintaining....right where I am.

The old Laura would have been stressed about mr. scales NOT moving every week. BUT what I have learned is that my body will do what it needs to do ....taking the time it needs too. "Why be impatient and stressed?, I asked myself. How could that possibly help me anyhow... emoticon

The truth is that I desire to ENJOY my journey, through being faithful to maintain healthy habits, and If I am doing that ( and yes, I have been faithful ), and my body sits at a certain number, that's Great! LOL!! This IS still progress.

Patience can be a hard lesson...Lol. In the last BLC round ( and it was also my first) I lost perhaps my body is getting a bit comfortable at this new weight...8# is alot to lose. When my body is ready, the number will move, but in the meantime, I must reflect on this:

1.) I fell in love with the FUN of a healthy lifestyle!
2.) I made a Commitment to Enjoy this journey, and I DO!
3.) I AM having Fun! ...:::no stress here:::.... emoticonnot for a moment.
4.) I will continue to Live it!

....I never thought I'd be saying this , but here I am. I must say, it is liberating! My chosen healthy weight range is 140-145. I am at 146. The scales will move when it's time. I feel good, have loads of energy and wear slim clothes....what more could I ask for?

....:::::As I began to type, I just felt so FREE about my journey like a breakthrough happened! Ha! So neat! So ...:::if you actually read through the whole thing - thanks.

Life is so wild right now with Spring time schedules....::::it is amazing I have found such peace, balance and contentment in the midst of it ALL!
I give God the glory! emoticon
