There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is not a train!

Sunday, March 22, 2015

I try not to weigh myself anymore and use other measures to gauge my fitness. For example, I consider how my clothes feel, how my body moves in new ways, the more I can do without feeling exhausted. The first few months the pictures did not show much but today I see a difference and not just feel a difference.

Here is me around 12/20/14:

Here is me today, 03/21/2015:

I look at these pictures and I clearly see progress that the scale does not see. There IS light at the end of this tunnel. I have been thinner before but this is the first time I have really tried to be consistently healthy about my body and not just "skinny" to prove to the latest him or anyone else my worth and value as a person. This time I truly do it for no one but me. I surprise myself lately when reaching to do something and my body move strongly in a way it has not for years. I like how this is going. I like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and knowing it is not a train to come and derail me again. This time I AM THE TRAIN....I am the little engine that could...that would...and is DOING!

    Hooray for you! I also like NSV (nonscale victories) over weighing myself. The number game always frustrated me. Keep up the great work.
