Slow and Steady - 20 lbs down!

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

There are days when I'm thrilled with my progress and feel like a I'm so different now...not only in appearance, but in my confidence and just how I eat and take care of myself. But then there are other times when I get frustrated with the slowness. I want the scale to move faster...I want my tummy to be flatter...I want the next size down in clothing.

SO, during those times, I stop and take a breath. I take a moment to notice how strong the muscles are in my legs. I notice that I can hold a pilates pose longer, or can push myself harder on the treadmill. I notice that I can easily decline dessert, or choose the lighter option during a meal. I look at myself in the mirror a lot more. I really look. I notice my curves and am not ashamed. I bought a more fitted bathing suit and don't feel the need to hide.

I also can celebrate some other non-scale victories. Just had blood-work done and my sugars, vitamin D and other levels are all within the normal range! Yay!! When my doctor saw my weight, she was blown away...and VERY happy.

Life is good! I'm doing this!
