My arms got longer?


Monday, June 16, 2014


This weekend I decided to give my husband a break and did the dishes. Normally I do the cooking and he does the tidying but everyone needs a break now and then. I don't like doing dishes, it hurts my back but as I was cleaning up I realized that I wasn't stooped over like normal. I was actually standing in front of the sink, not inches away trying to reach over a tire to get to the water. Maybe I had just gotten used to the stoop? But the same ah ha moment came when I cleaned the bathtub. No huffing and puffing to reach the other side, no grunting and sucking in my stomach as I tried get into the corners. Did my arms get longer? When I stood up I looked down and really realized how much I had lost. There is no more huge stomach blocking the view of my feet.

I think it's cool how these moments sneak up on us. Celebrating all the little victories along the way works for me. Being more mobile rocks! What makes me smile and laugh a little is that 50 pounds I'll be saying this all over again not realizing how many more ah ha moments will come my way.

  Great job. And I'll bet your back wasn't near as tired, since you don't have as much weight to support. Keep doing what you're doing. Seems to be working!
