77 Days, But Who's Counting...

Friday, July 12, 2013

Today has been a much better day than the rest of the week. I got up and got a few things done that I needed to do in the morning and after lunch I got a good workout in which always makes me feel good about myself. I can't believe it has been 77 days since I found this site! Thank God I did because it has changed my life. I feel more energetic, stronger, and a bit slimmer as I have lost 10 lbs. since I started. I also feel that I am back in control of myself. When I was gaining and not taking care of myself it lowered my self esteem and I felt out of control -- not a fun feeling.

Today with all that I have learned from the site and from so many of you -- I know exactly what I can eat and still lose weight and how much I need to move my body. I have so much more energy and the past couple of days I have noticed that I just feel lighter moving around -- kind of a nice feeling! I like this lifestyle; it agrees with me and I intend to keep it! I enjoy my food (I spice things up) and I even enjoy moving my body! I can't wait to lose the rest of the weight because I know I will feel even better -- and I'm looking forward to those size 10 jeans!

    I am happy that you feel so WONDERFUL! emoticon I was going towards a size 10 as well but I am staying with a size12. Because I am older (62) daughter has told me that I shouldn`t lose more weight. D and I have always made a pac to be honest because our husbands will not be honest. The weight loss was showing a lot in my face even though it is obvious that I need to lose weight in my lower half . Unfortunately, this is not going to happen. Maybe if I could tie a rubber band around my neck so I wouldn`t lose weight in my face. emoticon But I am happy with a 12 because I was wearing a tight 16 last Sept. Don`t lose sight of your goal but be realistic and be healthy. It is only a size......it is how you feel....you have already discovered that. emoticon
