The I'm over halfway there blog

Friday, November 18, 2011

I blogged when I made it a 1/4 of the way.

I probably should blog when I make it half way. But I missed. I made it half way a week ago. I think maybe I have been avoiding this because I didn't know what to write.

I think I am supposed to be writing about emotional eating this week anyway, something for the stage of spark that I am in.

But yes... I can do it all at once, right?

In the last 1/4 of the way:

I suddenly looked skinnier.
All over, but mostly in my face. My double chin doesn't have a double chin.

I bought new pants.
They are now too big.

I put new holes in my belt.
I am now on the second of the new holes.

I saw onederland for the first time in a LONG time.
And I am staying in this one-derful place.

I ate fast food for breakfast one morning.
And then nearly threw up it made my stomach feel so icky.
(read: my body is used to HEALTHY food!)

I can't imagine going a day without eating something fresh and tasty.

I can chase my daughter around the house almost as long as my husband can.

I work out regularly.
And I LIKE it.

But really what was exciting today was that I am no longer obese. Yes. That is right. I have made it into the "overweight" category. I have never been so happy to be considered overweight. I mean, seriously, it is an odd thing to be happy that you are overweight, but I guess it is all about perspective. Which end of overweight did you just hit. Are you headed upwards, or downwards?

I should take some new pictures... maybe someday soon :-)

Oh - and the emotional eating thing I am supposed to blog about. I have discovered that it really isn't that big of an issue for me - I just used it as an excuse to snack. But if I don't think about it, I don't do it. Weird. I know. Not trying to sound arrogant. but I guess it isn't my big issue! i have many. That one just isn't it!

    Congratulations on getting down to being "overweight". That is awesome, and making such progress. Yes please get some pics taken so we can see how far you have come.

    I know what you mean about being happy to finally be "overweight". I'm still working on that one myself. I still have about 8 pounds to go.

    Keep on doing what you're doing. You seem to have a handle on how your body works.
