The little things you realize

Thursday, July 17, 2008

So I have realized in the last month or so that...I can now cross my legs, reach the middle or top of my back to get at a itch, do my own toes nails without feeling like I am going to pass out from bending over for a few seconds, I could probably go on and on..I guess I realize more and more each day. I always thought I am a healthy fat person, but I now realize not only was I not healthy but I was also limited at some of the tasks I could do. Yesterday I fit into a pair of jean shorts I wore when I was 19 and on vacation in Cali. Yes I still had a pair of shorts from 9 years ago, they are like brand new as I only fit into them for a short time back then. What a good feeling to be getting down to a healthier size and I was even able to play a rough and long game of basketball with my 7 year old nephew, he darn near kicked my but, LOL. It helps to realize how far I have become to motivate me to continue and succeed at my journey, about 50-60 more difficult pounds to go!

    way to go on your loss so far. I personally can't wait to be able to do the things you've mentioned, I know that even at 28 pounds lost this year I notice a lot of changes myself. I can only imagine when I lose 100. Keep up the great work.
