Three months on this journey.
Here's what I've discovered:
1. I missed me. I think I got lost somewhere along the way...I'm funny, I love talking to people, and I love dancing. I've found myself more willing to talk to people and make conversation and putting myself out there. I find myself dancing along to music when I hear it again. I laugh more. I nap less! I think, even though it didn't hit me at the time, that I have been ashamed of myself for so long that I just stopped doing all those things I used to LOVE.
2. I love sweating. After I'm done exercising--especially Zumba--I love that sweat down the back, gotta catch my breath moment. I love that soreness in my muscles that night as I go up the stairs to bed or to sit down...that's me getting STRONGER.
3. I know what I put down as my goal for SparkPeople...but I'm not sure that's really my end. Do I lose more? Do I lose less? I don't know...but I do know that I'll keep plugging along doing what I have been doing.
4. The number on the scale isn't the end all, be all. Nope, not even close. I will not let that number dictate to me what my mood for the day is going to be. I feel good and I feel stronger every day. That's what matters.
That's me! I chopped my hair off--inverted bob--and colored it browny/red. I think I look pretty darn sassy! And younger!
(Oh yeah, and I lost 2.8 lbs. this week!)
