How's it going?
2010 was a good year.
It wasn't as fast a weight loss year as I thought I would have but it was a good one.
It's been a year and a half of losing weight and learning how to live differently.
In may (on may 4th to be precise) I will have been at this two years.
It is weird and kind of crazy.
I don't remember what walking around and moving around in a 262 lb body felt like.
I do remember the pain I had in my heels constantly.
That I do remember.
It was excruciating and when I would get up in the morning It took me a while before I could quit hobbling and walk like a normal human being.
I remember I couldn't bend over.
Now I do yoga moves like this... except I am lying on my back and the toes are touching the mat behind my head.
The other day I did a facebook app that lists your ten most used words from 2010..
here were mine.
That about says it...my focus has been on maintaining and or losing this year.
I hope a few other words (including reached and goal) will be on there this coming year.
I am glad to see my focus so clearly concieved in a list.
I have been focused on this for a year and a half.
I have started shifting out of primary focus somewhat and incorporating other aspects of my life.
But somethings have become second nature...
things like eating breakfast.
not eating fast food
exercising at least 5 or 6 days a week.
noticing what I am consuming.
These are all habits I didn't have 18 months ago.
If I had been on facebook 18 months ago my list would have been very different.
It would have included words like
A new year is coming...let's make what we want of it.
calories in at 1467 and burn in at 520 including 100 situps yeah.
(I love the arc trainer btw, if you get a chance try it...it really works the back of your legs.)
Have a good one.
