As Thanksgiving is around the corner, I want to give thanks for where I am at this moment. I am mobile and relatively healthy. I am recovering from an injury, but that injury could be worse. I am heavier than I've been in long time, but it is NOWHERE near the heaviest I've been.
I was telling a good friend recently that when you're 340 pounds and you hit 250, you're kind of like "wow! I look good," but when you're 150 and up to 200, you feel bad. It's relative. I remember feeling horrible fat when I couldn't zip my size 2's anymore... and here I am in a 14/16. I need to appreciate and give thanks for where I am at. 14/16 is not size 30/32. Size 4 was still tiny, I don't know what I was thinking.
Even though my weight is up, since I've started water jogging, I am feeling stronger and more energetic. I'll get there, to the sweet spot again, but I am fine the way I am. I am thankful to be here. I am here now, and here is not so bad.
