Is it magic?

To make me feel even MORE big-headed (since losing 8lbs last week) I've gone and done it again with a 7.5lb weight loss this week!
Now I'm starting to scare myself - it makes me realise just how much i am capable of and that yes, i AM moving gradually into a healthy, slim body!
I've recently noticed it in my clothes, which is surprising since up until now i hadn't.
My ultimate buddy is my ipod, which i have put loads of up-beat HAPPY songs on (Lilly Allen, Pixie lot, etc.) I plug in and go - overtaking everyone on my half-hour walk to college. This feels like a completely new me and i start speaking out at college in class, when before i would sit quietly and keep my views to myself.
Today i've been talking to people i don't even know, finding it so much easier to socialise which has always been a hard area for me because of having no self-esteem.
I've been STUDYING. If there's one thing losing weight is helping me with it's that! I have the motivation to do the work because i have to motivation to dream of being a teacher!!
Now, reading this back i can't even believe i've written it - it's almost as if i'm changing so gradually that i'm not even conscious of it. I would never say 'I like walking' - that's just not me! I suppose the more weight you lose, the more you WANT to, and exercise naturally increases.
I just want to shout out to the whole world that I'M LIGHTER THAN I CAN EVER REMEMBER AND STILL GOING!!!!
Well, there's my imagined 15 mins of fame for ya.
P.s. when nobody's looking, i run. ;)
