I am 142.5lbs! I have not been this thin since before my son was born. That would be sometime in *gulp* 2005.
I feel sooooooo good. Not just about the weight loss, either. I feel energized! I feel strong! I feel in control!
It is wonderful to be a good place again. A place where I like my body instead of pinching, poking, sucking in, and disliking what I see.
I am proud of me.
And I am beginning to wonder if maybe, just maybe, my college weight may be attainable. For so long I have thought me at 135lbs was ship that sailed in the 90's. Two kids and a misbehaving thyroid might convince you such a thing, too.
This whole calorie counting and completely doable exercise program has put that number back on the table.
p.s. I have decided, on the heels of an exciting weigh-in, that I will NOT be tossing caution to the wind and eating like a maniac for Thanksgiving. I am going to be mindful and enjoy the meal. I am NOT going to eat just to eat. A bite of my favorite dessert can be just as satisfying than an entire serving. Especially when it keeps me in control and on the right track.
Good luck all and have a happy and HEALTHY Thanksgiving!
