Inside the Box...A big surprise
Monday, March 26, 2012
Friends are awesome. They keep you going when you are sure that quitting would be much better and the journey is just not doable, walking partners doubly so. The people that workout with me have really done their bit to keep me gong.
One Friend has given me clothes. I have wieghted over 300 pounds. I am currently closing in on 199 (Like that I did not say 200. Notice it. There is a difference. )
Since I have known this friend I would never have considered her obese. We have been walking together for a while now. She has recently lost some weight. She has given me the clothes she no longer needs. This morning I opened up a box and took something out. My initial reaction was "you have got to be kidding. How does she think I will fit this. " I looked carefuly at the article of clothing. Really? Yea right were going through my head.
Then the little timid voice says "try it..Try it...maybe you are close...maybe???" Timidly I put the clothes on. Sure that it would not work. But, I was WRONG.... amazed. wow. I knew that I was having problems admitting I was getting smaller. But, really They fit. I am doing the happy dance today all day.
I am grateful to friends who see what I cannot see. It is working.
I actually had someone call me skinny and tell me they were jealous the other day.
I am still moving forward. Ever so slowly.
