Feeling Pretty Strong :)
Wednesday, May 10, 2017
Today was a great NSV!! My 21 yo daughter came with me to Pilates. She thought it was tough. She had no strength. We just did beginning stuff. I felt pretty good. I flew through the exercises. I know not fair as I have been doing it for almost 2 years and she is just starting, but I realized how far I have come.
It made me realize that I have accomplished a lot and become stronger. I began to think that Pilates was just tough for me because I am over weight and not strong. Now, I realize it is tough and I have worked through it.
Also, I feel good as people keep asking me how much more weight I have lost. The scale shows me kind of stagnant, but my clothes keep getting bigger.
I came to another realization this week. Just because you are not heavy doesn't mean it is easier to find clothes. My daughter needs an outfit for a presentation. She is a size 2/3. Should be easy right? Nope! We spent all day and stuff was either too big or too long or didn't fit right. I have come to the conclusion that the only perfect body is that of Barbie whose clothes are all made to fit her!
