What If Weight Didn't Exist - How I Know I Am Healthy

Thursday, December 05, 2013

If "weight" didn't exist, how would I know if my body is healthy?

For one thing, my doctor is THRILLED! about my weight loss (23 lbs today). My cholesterol levels dropped dramatically!

My clothes fit better and I am wearing 3 sizes smaller than when I began. WOW, it's so much fun to pull clothes from the back of my closet that I haven't been able to wear for years. It's like I have a whole new wardrobe without buying much that is actually "new."

I can do things easily today that used to just exhaust me . . . getting into and out of the car, walking into a store and shopping, finishing all my erands for the day before quitting, exercising in the mornings most days of the week without it being a knockdown, dragout fight beforehand.

I have made so many new friends at exercise class. I feel like participating in life in a way that I had almost forgotten.

Ah, this is good to ponder all the ways I am healthier, fitter, and happier even though the scale doesn't read what I thought I wanted it to. I think I'll just keep on doing what I'm doing. This is GREAT! emoticon

    emoticon and emoticon !!! I know when I was morbidly obese, I didn't fit in anywhere, and I didn't want anybody to be around me. However, look at you, you've made some new friends! When you have somebody to walk through this lifestyle change with you, it makes it a heck of a lot easier!!! Keep up the FANTASTIC WORK!!!!

    Be blessed,
