Losing is a Good Thing

I had a moment yesterday. I have been regularly walking a mile with one of my top supporters, Chantal!  We started walking around the time I started Weight Watchers. I was trying to find ways to ease into a healthier life. I was NOT about to pick up running. I needed to start somewhere.  I opted for: taking the stairs more and regularly walking a mile. Walking a fast-paced mile and talking at the same time is HARD. I was out of breath the whole time. Yesterday, I didn’t feel that at all! I felt like we could have kept going, talked even more, and walked a little faster. That was ground breaking for me.  
I had an even better moment today! I hit a big milestone of 20lbs down!!! For two months, I’ll take it! I haven’t really seen a difference in how I look. It has been defeating at times. I would look at the scale, get on, off, and back on again. Yes, indeed, I was down. I couldn’t see it. Not until today when my friend, Laura, took this picture of me holding 20lbs of PASTA. Then I put it side by side with an old, but recent photo. NOW, I see it.

I have never been so happy to lose. I haven’t felt this good in a long time. I can do small things and not die. That is why I started this journey in the first place. My goal was never and will never be to “get skinny”. It is to be comfortable doing the things I love to do. My health should not hold me back from the things I want to do. Two months ago, I made a commitment to myself. Looking back, I am so glad I did.

Make my day... leave me a message. I hate to think I am just talking to hear myself talk. :P
