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

Saturday, July 27, 2013

But geez, Louise. Allow me just a minute or two to whine and then I'll be good. emoticon

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 emoticon

    Amen to everything you said, sister! I've just crossed over to One-derland and I can tell you from recent firsthand experience that the view from here is GREAT! The view, and the knees, and the muscles, and the endurance, and the new clothes, and the compliments and the confidence! Keep on keepin' on and we'll see you over here soon!

    Love those visualizations!! You are doing a fabulous job! I think jet skiing, paddleboarding ... all of it would be great fun!! Congratulations on your success!! Keep at it. I'm so happy for you and so glad that you are feeling so great! I do so appreciate your rant that things are moving so slowly, but I am a firm believer that the weight that comes off slowly will stay off longer. You are fabulous and will be even more so very soon!! emoticon

    If you can't rant here, where else can you do it?
And you are having a ton of non-scale victories. What a great attitude you have. You are moving in the right direction, and feeling better is the best end result!
