One of my good friends from high school posted a picture of a mini reunion get together we had at a bar over Thanksgiving Break. And it caught me off guard. I look unrecognizable to myself. I immediately wanted to hate on myself and the picture.
But, then I took myself to a place of gratitude.
I am not in that place any more. And right now I am using my new tool in the best way I know how. I’m eating protein rich, nutrient dense foods. I’m eating meals and snacks and not grazing. I’m logging every single thing I eat. I’m getting about 10,000 steps a day, sometimes a little less. I gave up hot coffee and my beloved chemical coffee cream for at least 5-6 days a week.
There are a few things I could be doing better but I’m working on it.
I can tell you it was great to go to a concert tonight and just be in my seat and not spill over to the person next to me. It was great just to get up with ease and dance to the music, not worried about my clothes being too tight and how I looked from the back.
I know this rapid weight loss won’t be forever but I am enjoying the journey and taking in the lessons and creating new healthy habits to replace my old self sabotaging ones.
Crazy to me the difference. I feel sad looking at that first picture.
I hope you are all having a good week!
