Today has been pretty much like any other day... and yet for some reason in the last hour I've found myself having quite the moment. It's as if my journey this past year has suddenly caught up with me, and I'm pretty emotional all of sudden. I can't believe how much has changed in my life since I first wrote here. I can't believe all of the experiences I've been fortunate to have as a result of having made and stuck to my lifestyle changes. All these memories that I would never have had if not for those changes. It's amazing. I almost wouldn't believe it all if it weren't for the fact that I'm living it right here and right now. Crazy.
True story: I bought a bunch of XL workout clothes when I first started this journey last June, and I still workout out in them. For one, I'm cheap and those clothes were expensive, lol, but also I love sliding them onto my much smaller and tauter body and reflecting on how far I've come. It's a great inspiration before heading out of the change room to get down to business. :)
My story from last year when I just started... www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
in case anyone wonders how it all started for me. What sticks out to me is a few sentences right near the end:
"I want my kids to grow by example, and I want to be active with them, and I want to be hot for my wife again (I know she loves me regardless, but she deserves the best that I can be). These three things run through my head everyday, and I won't give up on them. I won't give up on myself."
What amazes me, is that these three things are still the exact same reasons I refuse to give up. I refuse. Stubbornly so. :)
