I am ...::like:::... so StOkEd right now about a NUMBER!! emoticon

The last time I checked out my body fat % ...:::I was at 24% and truly happy, BUT......:::::& I need a drum roll puleeze! emoticon I am now at 21%!!

I had no idea...::::I jumped up and down emoticon startling everyone in the room....BAhahahaha!! emoticon

Here's the very interesting fact: Mr Scales registered 144 when my body fat was 24%, and today I weigh in at 148 with 21% body fat. I have really been trading in fat for muscle through my LOVE of fitness and mindful eating.

....:::My brain is wrapping around this particular NSV, and I am celebrating.

It's NOT about the scale, but other NUMBERS, like a 27" waist, like working out with 90#, like 21% body fat, like running a 9:50 mile, and finally running a 10K! Now THOSE numbers scream PROGRESS! emoticon

I feel like someone has taken pressure off my shoulders ( the need to weigh in at a certain number ), and released me through the success of these other numbers.

Funny.....:::::how POWERFUL a number can be. emoticon

I will watch Progress as it takes off, and enjoy the Process with no expectations, just a fulfilling life of health with a bright Perspective.

Speaking of perspective, my eldest DD went to camp today, and my youngest DD is home with a summer cold, but both are happy. I know that they would prefer to go to camp together, but we are learning to make our happiness wherever we are. That lovely word - contentment. Here is a pic of them together....
