So, it has been four weeks, and I have now lost six pounds! I am two pounds behind what I had hoped to be, but that is not the important thing. The important thing is that I am losing! I feel like my body has finally kicked into gear, and, as I stay active and eat right, I will be able to continue to lose.
Ok. Announcement: My sister got engaged last weekend! How awesome is that! This means that I have another reason to lose that weight. She and her fiance have not set a date yet, but have decided to go for a year to a year and a half from now approximately. That would be this next summer, or the spring after. This means that I have to get this done! I have been asked to be the maid of honor (Hooray!!! 🙂 ) But, SERIOUSLY GUYS, that means that this is serious, not just little goals that I can quit on or slack off on, but real set in stone goals.
My biggest desire is to be fitter, but losing weight and getting to my healthy weight will be great too. I have noticed that, even though I am still outgoing, there are many things that I have noticed that I am less so than I used to be. I don’t typically feel uncomfortable in my own body, but my stomach is truly a barrier to me bending over all the way, and I would like to fit into things that I have not fit into in a while. I would like to go to the store and put on a normal dress, and fit into it.
Good news as well: I am noticeably able to do more than I used to. Last week I went on a church retreat, and was able to hike up steep hills without stopping. small shout out but I believe an important one, since my asthma and lack of fitness has gotten between myself and this small goal in the past. 🙂
Until next time-
