I Know, I Know. It's Just A Number.

But geez, Louise. Allow me just a minute or two to whine and then I'll be good.
I'm losing about 1 pound every 2 weeks. Yes, I'm going in the right direction. No, I didn't put it on overnight. Yes, I have success in other areas than the scales. Yes, I'm almost 60 and can't lose weight quickly as I did when I was in my 20's but but but...
I track my food, I track my workouts, I exercise at least 5 days a week, I keep my calories between 1200 & 1500, and yes, my clothes are all falling off me and I get lots of complements.
Ok, I'm done. See? I told you I'd be ok in a few.
What's the opposite of whining? Whatever, I'm about to do that too.
I feel freaking GREAT. AWESOME, in fact. Better than I've felt in over 20 years. I JUST WANT TO GET BELOW 200!!!! I haven't been below 200 in over 20 years. I know it's on the horizon and I'm doing all the right things to get there and then keep going.
I visualize myself retired in a couple of years and being so active that no one can keep up with me and enjoying life to the fullest. I visualize myself next year in a kayak and sometime soon on a paddle board. Maybe even a jetski
