Because every aspect of my life has been effected by my weight loss,
it is impossible for me to list all of the reasons
why commiting myself to a healthy lifestyle has been so very much worth the effort.
Here is my best shot at that.
The way I feel!
Breathing...just being able to with ease.
Walking...just being able to with ease.
Jogging...(I can't believe I can jog!)
Sex!....nuff said :-)
Having control over me!
Realizing that I am worth the effort it takes.
Knowing that 'screwing up' one day, one week...even a year....will not make or break me.
My doctor's face every time i see him!
Realizing that I can get back on program just as quickly as I came off.
Every aspect of my health improving.
Realizing I never really grew up....and that I never want to! :-)
People I know walking right past me because they don't recognize me.
Knowing that the people I care most about have only benefited from me putting myself first.
Learning how to forgive myself for not being perfect.
My brother's face when he came home for a visit (we hadn't told him i'd lost over 100 pounds).
Liking vegetables! (who woulda known?)
Knowing how good I feel when I treat my body right.
Watching people's faces when I tell them how much weight I've lost.
The people that ask if they can 'touch me' to feel inspired.
