Birthday promise

Monday, June 03, 2013

Every year for I don't know how long I have set weight loss goals to be accomplished by my Birthday. I never met them. This year was different. I am about 43 pounds lighter this year than last year. So, Happy Birthday to me. One day late, although it was my Birthday when I sat down here. I am staying up late tonight.
Accomplishing that goal really meant alot to me. I am at a stand still as far as weight loss goes, but I feel so much better, I am stronger, and I feel alot better about myself than I did this same time last year.
I never want to go back. This is just to good to throw away. I am alot healthier too. I go for a check up to the LIver Center in Pittsburgh this month on the 26th. I expect a very good report. I haven't lost as much weight as my Dr. wanted me to, but I have lost alot since I saw him in January.
I can do things this year that I couldn't do last year. Stairs are easier to climb. Hills are easier to climb. Walks are more enjoyable. I don't feel like I am going to explode if I have to bend over. Tying shoes used to be miserable. My body hurts less; and many more benefits to numerous to mention.
I also don't see myself as fat anymore. My thinking is changing. The mind has to change before anything else can change in your life. I can see myself as I am, really. I used to see myself as a huge horrible looking person. I am not ugly, but my body was. I am seeing myself differently. Alot has changed over the past year in my Spirit, body and soul. More change is coming.
I have a friend that says you have to make a decision to make a decision. So true.
My decision is made. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it. LOL.
