As I write to you know I am officially
pounds lighter than when I started my fitness journey!
21 pounds ago, I could not have imagined making it here, and here I am!
I'm looking forward to the next 21 pounds, but I am celebrating this accomplishment big-time!
Yesterday as I was getting ready for work Jake was still sleeping so instead of turning on the light I used the light from my iPhone to find my way around our closet. I put on my pants and shirt and walked downstairs...
When I passed a mirror, though, I realized something. The pants I had intended to wear were not on my body. Those were still upstairs somewhere. The pants I was wearing were pants that I haven't been able to comfortably fit into for quite a while. This was the BEST feeling in the world! I will never go back to those other big-girl pants again - but I'll keep them around for a while to see how far I progress :)
Besides my body changing, I've noticed that my opinion of myself is changing as well. If you had asked me 21 pounds ago if I loved my body I would have said No. Absolutely not. I could have given you a list a mile long of things that I hated and wanted to change - legs, arms, stomach, etc etc.
Even though I have more weight I want to lose and I have many more goals to achieve, I can say this with 100% honesty:
Loving my own body for what it is in this exact moment is a great feeling- one that I hope to keep for the rest of this journey and the rest of my life. The body I have right now is enabling me to make the changes and make my dreams a reality- what's not to love?
I hope you're having a wonderful wonderful day :)
