It's good to feel hopeful again

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

So many starts and stops....losses and gains....it's almost impossible not to let that discourage me. but....

I have started working out with my friend Brenna in the mornings, and although we've only gone 4 days, there has been a huge improvement! I am working out harder and sweating more, and we've also been using the weight machines, which I promised myself I would start eventually but never got around to it.

My mood has been better throughout the day, and even though I'm tired, it's a earned tiredness....I'm tired from working out, not just from being out of shape and lugging around all this weight.

I actually feel it's possible to lose weight this time, and slow and steady is fine with me. I'm not feeling so rushed to see results (although some would be nice!) I know if I keep working out hard, I'll see some.

And I know I need to work on my food issues, and I need to start logging my food, as much as I hate doing that. But it's such a small part of my day and it's really worth it, so I will do it for myself.

I'm feeling calm...and hopeful...and excited....and pleased...and dare I say....happy?
