My Valentine Present
Monday, February 14, 2011
When one is single Valentine's Day kinda comes and goes without any thought or expectation of a present, flowers, candy, etc. Again, this year, I woke up and didn't even think of the day, other than it's another Monday and how grateful I am to have a job to go too.
As I was getting dressed, I looked at some white cords my sister had given me several months ago. At the time she gave them to me, I couldn't even pull them up over my hips. I've tried them on several times in the last 6-7 weeks and nope, still too little. So, I thought, I will try these pants on again this morning. Well, they pulled right up and buttoned without even having to suck the gut in.
I was walking on air as I left home this morning. I smiled my entire hour drive to work. After I arrived at work, I thought might as well weigh. This is a good day b/c I really don't care if the scales have moved or not. Being able to wear these white cords was more than enough reward for me and a number on the scale wasn't going to impact my joy today! I jumped on the scales and I have lost another 2 pounds!!!
Happy Valentine's Day to me!! What better present to give to oneself than improved health and fitness. This is true love at it's best!!!
