One Step Beyond
Tuesday, May 25, 2010
Okay, so I ripped the title off from a Madness song. But that's what it feels like. I have decided to take the next step beyond the goal that had been put in writing on my ticker for so long. Time to move the ticker down. I just can't see 10 more lbs. as being done weight wise. Deep breaths as I prepare to leap...
I have to say, I am pretty impressed with myself. I am about 1 month away from my 1 year Sparkversary. Not like me to have managed to change every aspect of my existence in the last two years, the last being health related for the most part. (I am not counting Art Guy of course! He is uncategorical.) And your going to hate me for saying this, but it really has gotten easy. It is such a natural part of my life. I would have never dreamed to have a hard time not working out, not eating healthy. Overeating and emotional eating used to be so common. Now overeating is...well I can't remember the last time that happened. And I stopped emotional eating close to a year ago now, so it is hard to even remember the hows and whys that used to occur. Add happiness into the mix and the weight is just sliding off. Go ahead, I give you full permission to curse the screen, or rather me. A year and a half ago I wouldn't have understood it either. So, if anyone who reads my blogs has any questions, please message me and ask. I also read all the comments and respond personally if there is a question in them. Ask away; I want to share what life and spark has taught me. =) I used to think it was so far away. I know I would have never believed it possible for me to go from a 16 to a 6 (so far and going strong), from a couch potato to a gym lover, and from a shoe shopper (shoes are indiscriminate to the size of a person and don't really ever make you feel fat) to a petite dept., small end of the sizes, clothing-for-miles shopper, who gets a buzz just from trying things on and sometimes never actually buys anything after hours. I promise you can get here too.
Okay, so I am off to move that ticker. Thanks to everyone who has sent well wishes on being so close to my goal. But I think it is time to find a new one. Don't get me wrong, getting to a healthy BMI range is HUGE for me, and still is a big goal. But a healthy weight is optimal. ;)
