Success breeds upon itself. I am feeling more alive and ready to face the world. I know that I don't have my weight 'conquered'. I will NEVER conquer this weight thing. It's not possible. I have a food addiction. I will struggle with that demon until the day I die. I've hopefully learned my lesson about how easy it is to fall. And yes, I fell hard. But I'm on my way back. I'm losing again. I'm eating right. I'm feeling more alive each day that I retain control of my weight. I am down about 8 pounds ....small beans in what i have left to lose (but still if I go from my highest weight ever I'm 72 pounds lower than that...so that's a good thing!) But with each day I feel more alive and more ready to face the world. I have more energy and sitting on the couch with my laptop in front of me no longer seems appealing. I want to be doing something.
So maybe that's my next step...what in the world can I get into in the evenings.....break the habit of sitting on my butt doing nothing. :-D
Zumba tonight. I'm going to an early class (since this is my afternoon off) so that I can be home in time for the face off for game 7 of the Caps versus Bruins game tonight. I'm also trying to talk my husband into going out for a bike ride this afternoon....it's a little chilly...but not 'cold' so I may be able to get him to go. :-) In lieu of a bike ride, maybe a walk. Something outside...something active. I have a plan for this evening too....a plan that would keep us up off the couch and moving around too! (moving some desks and furniture in the house....normally I would do it on my own...but I'm not touching his computer desk without him!)
I"m contemplating restarting my photo a day project. It really keeps me looking at the world in a really cool way. Always looking for the beauty around me. And as I retake my life.....I'm seeing more prettiness.
