I had a fantastic day yesterday. It started out that I was feeling great at work in my new pair of high heels that I bought. I love high heels but had stopped wearing higher ones because as I had gotten heavier I started to feel self-conscious in them, like a super huge person teetering around on two tiny little sticks. It seems so dumb but I can't tell you how good it feels to be back in my heels!
So I'm at work feeling good sporting my new heels and I get a call from my dermatologist. A couple of weeks back they had biopsied a spot on my back and were concerned it could be cancerous. The test came back benign! Yay!!! Huge relief!!! Day went through the roof!
Then, after work, I was getting out of the car at my sons daycare facility to pick them up and one the daycare workers calls me over and says, "Amy, you've lost weight. You look great, what are you doing?" That was the first time that someone who had no idea I was even trying to lose weight has remarked on my appearance, it made me feel so good. She said that her and one of the other workers had been talking about how they noticed I had lost weight and were wondering how I did it (I'm close with these workers, they've been watching my kids since they were 6 weeks old). I told her all about sparkpeople and how it helped me and about how the C25K program helped get me moving, she grabbed a pencil and starting writing everything down. I have successfully spread the spark!
To cap off the end of the day yesterday was day 2 of week 1 for Bridge to 10K, and I was able to gut it out. I was a dripping wet mess when I was done and my legs felt like rubber, but I felt good afterwards!
