I can not tell you how excited I am, I can not sit still. I can tell my old self that I am a huge, huge emotional eater, I eat when I am happy, I eat when I am sad, I eat, eat eat... that is the OLD me... Now I reward myself with pedis, manicures, hair cut and styles, I have blogged about that and shown pictures!
I have started to collect my favorite sayings and quotes on another blog I did here and will keep adding to it if I find it really motivational, not only to keep me motivated but to remind me of the new changes I am trying to create in me inside and out. I have found my self rewards in something that makes me better for me on the outside, but what more important things it is what has been happening on the inside of me as well. My ways of positive thinking, the way I do things, the way I talk and treat others, especially treating and talking to myself. I get to LIVE these things now myself to explore a great world before me that has yet to be seen and touched with my eyes and hands instead of watching it through others and wishing what it will be like. OH, WHAT A LIFE THIS IS AND OH HOW I LOVE IT!
I am so much happier, less stressed and most of all more loving than I ever could be... Most of all...Life DOES make a difference and for that I am thankful for the friends, family and support it took to me to get to this point and finally and the first thing in my life...Thanks be to God!
I DID NOT reward myself with food because I am not a dog! Today, my reward will be taking a very long 10mile hike and walk with my fiance and the dogs in a beautiful sunny 40 degree Midwest weather.
When you loose a lot of weight, I tell you and I promise you, you WILL feel different, act different (just a better version of you), and you will have a new whole outlook on life and living on what it should and how to be. I wish everyone in this world can experience what I am experiencing. It is a feeling like no other, it is a feeling of being set free of huge chains and you flying like an eagle. NOTHING can hold you down and NO one can stop you now.
I HOPE AND PRAY everyone gets to this point in their weight loss journey to where they can experience this emotion, and it is very emotional and moving. IT will be soo explosive you won't be able to contain yourself and when you feel that it will be amazing!!
MAY God bless you all and have a wonderful weekend!
