Why I am glad I lost weight

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

+ I can wear knee high socks up to my knees!

+ When I fly, I don't have to worry about my butt hitting people in the face.

+ I don't pant when I climb a single flight of stairs.

+ I have energy to exercise!

+ When I buckle up on the plane, I have almost 18inches of belt left!

+ I don't have to constantly hike up my pants.

+ I don't feel ashamed of bulges and rolls of fat.

+ I love to walk!

+ My feet and knees don't ache when I stand all day.

+ I'm not hungry all the time.

+ I sleep great and wake up without having to hit the snooze!

+ I can find pretty clothes to wear that make me feel good about myself.

+ I am not ashamed to have my picture taken.

+ I have learned how to say "no".

+ I have learned that fresh vegetables and cooking your meals doesn't have to be boring or take forever.

+ I have more room in the driver's seat!

But most importantly...

+ I am healthy, happy, and enjoying life!!

    Yes, yes, and yes to all. I just recently had the opportunity to fly and to rediscover the joy of room to spare in an airplane seat and belt. So great!
Many congratulations! Thanks to SparkPeople and all its wonderful members - emoticon

    emoticon thanks for sharing! The list of positives could go on and on and on...! So glad you are in a happy place! A + on my list is emotional well-being. The fat goes deep down into one's soul and that is painful. Though weightloss may not cure heartache in all areas of life it does make dealing with some a lot easier. I am in a much happier place, too! Keep Sparking! emoticon
