I know what you're thinking.

Another blog by Jan-Marie, talking about how she gained a few pounds and it's all part of the process, and numbers don't matter, and NSV's do.

And you are absolutely right.

The scale has been hating me the past few weeks, and I've hated it right back.

But the more and more pictures I take, the happier I am with myself.

JD and I rode our bikes for 15 miles, and I burned the most calories I've ever burned besides my half-marathon.

I also am beginning to notice changes in my arms. When I saw this picture, I realized that I will always be a bit more broad or wide than what I originally pictured as my end goal. But I'm getting more and more okay with my big-boned self.

Yesterday, J.D. and I went golfing with his two best friends, and my dad snapped this picture before we left. With my shirt tucked in and a belt holding up my too large shorts. And I realized, I may bounce in the 170s-180s for another year if I keep indulging when I feel like it and living my life NOT on a DIET, but just in a healthier lifestyle. And if the 170s-180s mean I'm a size 10 forever, so what.

(Please notice my Mirimichi visor from my Hole-In-One course.. lol)

Long blog short, I'm once again struggling with getting the scale to move down.

And I'm once again starting to realize, it just really doesn't matter as much anymore.

Maybe I'll never have a "healthy BMI" or be in pants that are a single digit (comfortably...).

But I am so happy. Happier than I've ever been in my life.

And for that, I thank you SparkFriends. This happiness is a result of SparkPeople and all of you supporting me.

I hope you're on the road to a happier life too.
