Bye-Bye College Weight

Friday, June 22, 2007

Okay, so, here I am at 150 lbs. It has come 3 weeks later than my most earliest estimates and then 1 week later than my more reasonable estimate, but here I am...Back to the weight that I lived at most of my life. Still, about 15 lbs too heavy, but into my old clothes and not constantly pulling on my belt loops when I sit down - it's a nicer feeling.
Now comes a grind, tho. Seriously, the 140s are an elusive group of ten for me and scary territory that I'm entering. I've NEVER been able to master them and here they are - looming in my future. The problem, obviously, is that I see them as a threat; as something that's "looming". I shouldn't do that, they are opportunity. Opportunity to feel my best, look my best and live my best! I feel good today, today is a good day. I'm getting there, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, week by week and month by month. Chinking away at that gut, thighs and butt but having more energy and more self-confidence in the meantime. I need to really work hard. I know there's improvements in the way I think about food. I turn it down now, I don't order something at restaurants if I've already eaten. I don't eat in front of the TV. I don't make spending time with food a priority. It's changing, it is. I like it. I need to keep doing it and with all of you wonderful Spark People - I will :)

    You know, I hate to say it, but this past month I have remained the same size. And I was thinking about it the other day - while I have weighed less in my teen/adult life, this is the smallest size I have ever been now and in the past (yey for muscles!). So what I was thinking about was that perhaps the reason why I haven't dropped any more sizes recently is because this is the smallest I have ever known. This is the size that I have always remembered as being the happiest in. It's that fear of the unknown I suppose and the complacency of familiarity. Definantly watch out for it before it's been too long and before you know it, a month has passed :-) ...... But all in all it looks like you're doing great, Kelsea! I'm so proud of you. The enthusiasm you've had lately to get your butt to the gym is motivating me for sure. Tomarrow is a gym day for me, and I'll be there with my workout-mix ready to roll!
