Oooowheee! oowhee, BABY...

Thursday, March 14, 2013

I have lost 20lbs! Without really exercising, or watching what I ate too closely, I lost 20LBS!! My doctors confirmed what I already knew, I am gluten intolerant... And it was effecting my whole body. It was messing with my intestines, my hormones, and immune system. I have been gluten free for 6 months and I feel...amazing! I have been able to come off of all my daily asthma meds, and my body is no longer holding on to the extra pounds. YAY!!

I feel incredibly motivated to actually TRY to lose the weight I have always wanted to. I have tried in the past, many, many times... The lack of success had made me quite bitter and I gave up. I resolved to the fact that I was always going to be a big women and I was going to learn to love myself regardless! Now, with this new successful, unexpected weight loss, and learning to love my body as it is I am ready. I'm not angry with myself or my "genes" or anything. If I work out everyday this week and not lose a pound I will still love my body, and focus on the fact that beyond the weight loss, exercise feels good.

Earlier this week my grandparents decided to invite my husband and I on a Caribbean cruise---their treat!! Whaaaa?! I am so so excited!! There is so much to do on this cruise! A lot of the activities my husband and I are interested in involve being active. I need to be in good shape to do things like kayaking around st. Maarten, rock climbing, hiking, surfing, scuba diving (thick or thin, I need strength) so that is driving my motivation to add more exercise to my life.

I feel really pumped! Seeing the numbers drop on the scale, really drop for the first time... Words can't describe. Tears, literally, come to my eyes every time I realize how far I've come and how far I could go. Just...wow.
