For the last three days, I have been getting on the scale...and every day
It said something like...
I didn't trust it the first day, so I waited...
I hopped on the second day, It said 198
I hopped on Today....Just after the wicked witch of the west dropped Tom off for his monthly visit...surely I thought....surely I would be back up over two hundred. Today with Tom weighing me down.
I hopped on today...
I didn't cry...I didn't scream..
but glenda did descend and tell me that I could have gone to wonederland whenever I had wanted....
not really, but metaphorically.
I feel happy. I feel different. A number shouldn't mean this much, but it does.
I also remember what I used to tell myself at over 260 lbs.
I used to say, oh if only I could go back to the 190's, I wouldn't take it for granted.
I would bust my hump and lose the weight.
Now I am here.
My first thought, and this is being honest...
was GOOD, IT'S ON....
I have what I wanted. I am in the 190's.
I am 68 lbs from goal.
68 LBS FROM GOAL.
I have lost 64 lbs.
From here on out it's asses and elbows.
No rest for the weary cause I ain't weary and I don't need a rest.
I don't feel satisfied, I feel energized.
I'm going to bury this weight.
I am going to put this in the dust bin of history.
I can't believe I am here already....
It was 6 months on November 18th...
I don't know what I expected when I started. But the idea that all it takes was eating 1500 calories and exercising an hour a day...
That thought never crossed my mind.
I thought I had set up a process which would take me at least two or three years to finish.
In six months I am halfway there.
I did not starve.
I say no alot more than I did. I count calories, I weigh my portions.
I eat a little differently, mostly swapping out lower fat and calorie choices for the higher fat ones.
Once a month, for a meal....I eat exactly what I want, no calorie counting and no limits.
It's really worked for me.
I think that is the key, finding what works for you.
Finding foods you can eat daily.
Exercise you can do daily.
A life that is livable daily.
That is what (w)onederland is....
A place you create.
Come create your own place...
Glenda is waiting.
