Further News From One-derland

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Sitting here on the other side of the 2 - 1 landmark, I have realized that various things have changed while I was preoccupied with the scale.

#1--I don't snore any more. I sleep very soundly, but apparently my husband didn't for quite some time. Now he gets his beauty rest, too! emoticon

#2--My "bad" knee feels just fine now. There is still some arthritis there, I'm sure, but I don't get any complaints from it, not even when I teach a class completely from the pool deck. I only realized this when I carried a 30 lb sack of dog food up the stairs and felt some discomfort. I had been doing the equivalent of carrying that dog food everywhere every day! emoticon

#3--My blood pressure is better and steadier. No more dramatic spikes, and a small amount of medication now keeps it where it should be. emoticon

#4--I am more flexible and agile with less chub in the way. I can cross my legs more easily, hop out of the pool quicker, sit on the floor more comfortably. Still creaky getting up from the floor, though. emoticon

It's been a real boost that people I see every day have started to notice and comment on my smaller size. It's amazing that these changes have occurred with the weight release to date. I'm very excited to see what will come with my next goal, moving my BMI out of the obese range. emoticon

And I WILL get there, with patience, persistence, and consistency. One pound, one day at a time. emoticon
