Life after 40...pounds that is

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

WOW, I have already lost over 45 pounds in 2 1/2 months, and I know that I wouldn't have been able to stick with it if I hadn't found SP. I know that I have a long way to go, but I figure i'm getting close to a quarter way there.

Things I think about after losing this weight.... it's getting easier to walk up to the "north 40" where I have to park my truck at work. I am actually looking forward to nice weather to start walking every day. I think about how my doctor told me yesterday that he was proud of my accomplishment, he understands because he was once obese himself. I think about how my son tells me every day that he is proud of me. That means so much. I had thought about joining Curves, but since talking to the doctor yesterday, I found out that a new gym is opening next month that will have personal trainers. I am going to sign up ASAP. I think some personalized butt-kicking is what I need. I think about food less and less every day. I can't wait until the week of my birthday (July 31st) we are going to go to an amusement park and hopefully I will be down at least 35 more pounds, and I will have the walking many miles thing down to a fine art.

This past week I joined the canned fat food drive team. Today I bought 37 pounds worth of food for the local food pantry, and I will buy 13 more pounds by the end of the month. I'm wanting to have another 4.8 pounds off by March 31st. If you haven't checked it out, please do so and consider giving back to your community.

Well, I'm wishing everyone sunshine and happiness for the coming weeks. Enjoy springtime.
