It's great to meetcha!
I just wanted to write out a small blog to let you know that the last few days of my blogs are NOT indicative of my personality. I've been mopey, and that's because a very difficult anniversary passed for me. BUT - I'm quick to get over such lows... and I'm on a upswing right now.
I have a few NSVs...mostly things I've noticed about myself recently.
I haven't lost a pound in almost a month. I'm pretty sure I'm plateauing...BUT!!!
1) I keep looking at the recent photo taken of myself next to my mom... and I look at it over and over and think... "Damn, I look SO pretty in this photo!" And before you go "awww that girl's full of herself..." I NEVER like myself in photos! I guess it's just my dress, the way I'm sitting...my hair...but mostly... it's my SMILE. I'm pretty when I smile! So I'm starting to FEEL pretty, and I love it.
2) My upper arms have tightened up a LOT. I may not have lost much weight this month, but it;s shifting into a better looking form. And I'm diggin' it!
3) My atopic dermatitis is completely gone above the waist. I still have some on my belly and some on my legs, but unless I point it out it's not noticeable. Yay!
4) My great Aunt Mary said I had GREAT legs, and that I most certainly did not get my legs from the maternal side of the family because they all have cankles. This made me laugh out loud, but it also made me really PROUD.
So you see, I'm seeing all the positives in my life in spite of all the craziness that's been going on. And you should keep positive, too. The journey is going to get hard at times, but keep on pushing and it will reward you so well.
