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!
