Remembering how it feels

Sunday, April 07, 2013

I weigh myself every day. Some people (ok most people) disagree with this practice, but it is what I have to do in order to keep myself in check. This morning I weighed in at 135.6. That is the lowest weight I can ever remember myself weighing in my teenage/adult life. I didn't even weigh this little in high school!

I am perfectly content at this weight. I don't want to go any lower. I am happy here, and I think I look healthy. Now, there may come a time when the scale goes down further (or it may go up for that matter) as I work towards my goal of 17% body fat. Of course, I will be replacing fat with muscle. If the scale goes up, I don't care because I will appear smaller. If the scale goes down, well... I wouldn't complain on that either!

I wore my new Miss Me jeans today... I size 27/31. Honestly, I could get away with a 26, but I like my jeans to have a little room in them. I don't like them falling down, but I like them to have room. I never thought that I would ever wear a size this small! a 27 inch waist? WOW

I am wearing a Jr's T-shirt in a size XL and it has lots of room.

I feel good about myself. I feel good with how I feel physically. I feel in shape and semi-fit (tho admittedly, I have a long way to go on that) I feel good mentally. I like how I look. I have always had more than my fair share of vanity, but I am pleased with how I look.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I want to remember how I am feeling right now. I want to remember all of the fuzzy feelings I am having right now so in the future, when temptation is looking me in the face, I can walk away because I want to continue to have these good feelings.

Hope everyone has a rockin Sunday!

    I also weigh myself every day. Rooting for myself to get to the next lower number keeps me (mostly) on the straight and narrow path emoticon

What really grabs my attention is when I hold up my jeans & see how much smaller they are then what I remember being for sooooo many years or when I catch my reflection in passing a window or mirror.

Who IS that girl????

Happy Day!
