... Because I'm in ONEderland!!!!
That's right, for the first time in years I'm below 200 pounds!
I am so glad I have made the healthy changes to my mind and habits that have led me to this point. It's so crazy (yet reassuring) to be less than 50 pounds away from my goal weight. A year or so ago I would never have thought all the positive changes I've made to my body and my thought processes were possible for me. And honestly, the most important change was to think positively. To change your body you must first change your mind. Or To shrink your body you must first grow your mind. Either one
The timing was perfect for this milestone... I did NOT want to work out today (I've had a little bit of a negative attitude the last couple of days), but I really pushed myself today during my 30 minutes of 5k training... then I did the Arc trainer and weights, and I felt proud for sticking with the plan. I was also proud that I ate an apple for a snack, and brought oatmeal for lunch instead of succumbing to the lure of my school's food court. After my work out, I stepped on the scale and saw the "1" instead of the "2"... I definitely, publicly, did an abbreviated happy dance.
I realize I'm only 1 pound less than I was a week ago... but honestly, being in the 100's instead of the 200's boosts me up!!
Thank you to all of my spark friends who are so supportive. A few of you have been more important to my journey thus far than you know. I'm excited to keep making good decisions that will lead me to be a better (and thinner) person.
