Finally getting used to this...

I haven't taken time to share my crazy thoughts for a while and so I am forcing myself to take a minute now. I have to admit that I have been feeling awfully proud of myself lately. I have lost 32 pounds since January 16th and I only have 2 pounds left to go. A few people that I don't see very often have even inquired about my smaller self. That felt GREAT!!
To be honest, though, I decided about 10 pounds ago that 125 pounds was a great goal to start with but it wouldn't be my final goal. I really could use to take off another 10 - 15 pounds. I have successfully slid into a size 10 pair of skinny jeans but I would love to see myself in a size 8, or even better, a size 6. If I am going to do this, I might as well go all the way, right?
It feels great to know that my BMI is no longer in the Overweight category, I have been considered in Healthy range for almost a month now AND I feel so much more confident about myself. I know that I look good and that has affected so many aspects of my life. I feel more active, my children are seeing their parents focused on being healthy which makes me feel like a great mom, and I've even been checked out a time or two. What girl doesn't love knowing that is happening? I may be 34 and married but I don't mind knowing that I've "still got it" (or at least a tiny speck of "it" left).
Ok, well I've spent enough time going on about how great I've done. I hope that many other SparkPeople are reaching their goals and evaluating the amazing life changes that they have had as a result of making healthy choices. I would love to hear about them, too!
