I NEVER thought...

Friday, July 19, 2013

Well, I have made some major progress. I actually lost 40 pounds and am getting closer and closer to my goal.

I started thinking about what I have accomplished so far, and how much progress I've made, besides just losing 40 pounds.

I can run. I can run without stopping. AND I like it again. AWESOME.

I'm getting better muscle tone again! I'm noticing muscles and definition of muscles and that was really nice to see.

What I also thought about recently.

I NEVER thought that I would be this overweight that losing 40 pounds didn't put me AT my goal weight. I never ever thought that.

Once I DID get that large... I NEVER really thought I'd make it here. I mean, I dreamed of it and wanted it and strived, but after my last failed attempts to get to THIS weight (let alone my goal weight) I just NEVER really thought I'd get here. Take THAT pessimistic attitude! I kick you out!

It is so funny how time can distract us from where we were.

I NEVER thought that I would want to enjoy my healthy, delicious salads that I have for lunch. I LOVE THEM!!! I mean, I always liked salads, but was a bad eater!!!

I NEVER thought that I would start to see my abs coming back.... but there they are!

I NEVER thought that I would look forward to working out again, but I do!!!

Now, I NEVER want to think of going back to that person. NOW, I want so much more to be the best me I can be.

I NEVER thought I'd get this far. But here I am!

    So inspiring! Your post reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: "Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway." -Earl Nightingale

Being the best you has a ripple effect and as you've said before, you're family is starting to catch on, so keep up the amazing work!!! emoticon
