Who'd have thought...

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

...that eating a couple of foods that were pre-Spark would send me running to the bathroom?
...that going to the fitness center (right there - words you would never have heard last year) would be something I couldn't wait to do?
...that I would actually be happy about buying new clothes for the fall?
...that meal planning would include "what kind of salad should I start with today"?
...that hearing the fitness center owner tell me that I'm going to be too fit for the water aerobics class soon would have me floating on air all day?
...that jumping jacks would be fun (except for the continuous flopping of body parts even after I'm done!)?
...that my days would cycle around which fitness activity I could do that day?
...that I would actually enjoy unfried fish?
...that seeing your comments about these blog entries would make me so happy?

Thank you all for your continued support and guidance. Even though many of you don't know it, I read what you write also, and though I may not comment often, many of the things you say really help me on this journey. In a few days, it will be my one year anniversary on SP and, even though I'm not where I wanted to be weight-wise, I am fitter and stronger than I ever was and I feel like I've never felt before. I have started a new outlook, towards food and fitness and how I feel about myself. My goal is to think like a thin person and try not to put food at the forefront of everything I do, but do other things instead. This is my commitment for 2014 and, hopefully, to reach 100 pounds lost, too!
