My unofficial weigh in for the last 3 days has been under 170, which is so terrific because I'm finally out of the "obese" BMI category, and now in the "overweight" range. For so long I've had a post-it note on my computer that says "170" to keep my goal in front of me. And now I've reached it. Passed it. I replaced it with a "165" post-it, which I think is quite attainable. My real weigh in day is Mondays.
I feel so slim. But I don't feel fit & healthy. I feel like I'm still recovering from my illness. I just have to meet myself where I am, with what I have, without judgement. I did a strength training video this morning. It was kind of a push. I do exercise not for weight loss, but for raising my energy & mood. It really worked for that.
I'm working on enjoying the journey. Gratitude is a large part of my progress. I want to thank you for reading my blog, and for supporting me. It makes me feel like my weight loss journey is bigger than me. It's about community and supporting each other. I'm really grateful for losing so much weight, looking & feeling so much better.
