Darn Those Diet Downers!!

16 pounds down and I feel great.
Its amazing how I see this as a journey and as lifestyle change. I literally picture myself on a mountain climbing my way up and out from where I was. I know that it will take a while and that I wont always meet my goals when I want to, but I KNOW I will meet them.
April has been an amazing month for me. I have been so focused on treating myself better both with giving my body the good food it needs and the exercise it needs.
In Ayurveda (Eastern medicine)- I am what you call a "Kapha" body type. One characteristic of a Kapha is that they are lazy and likely to be found on a couch, but if they can get their butts up and exercise, they love it and thrive off it.
I am there! I am thriving on this energy, on this feeling of pride that I got myself up.
My wifey has a conference next month and we will be staying at this resort and while she is sitting in boring workshops- I got so excited to think of all the fitness activities I will get to do. But... anyway Me ... wanting to exercise while on vacation?? I am still not used to this way of thinking, but it is refreshing.
Back to why I started writing today. I shared with my co-workers that I dropped another pound today and I was so proud but instead of sharing my joy with me... they seemed angry at me. The weight loss was fine before, but now it seems like I am losing too much (or rather losing more efficiently than they are) and they are not okay with it.
What a bubble burst.
but I have you Sparkers. and thank you! reading all your blogs, and hearing your struggles and successes- you all keep me fresh and motivated!
Happy Week everyone :)
