I have a lot of work to do tonight but I wanted to write a quick update about the exciting events of today.
I ran this morning for 15 minutes. I wanted to do more, but I was moving slowly and took a long time to get out of the house. It felt good though. I am getting pumped for this weekend.
Then I went to school. Ate a good healthy meal or two! :-) Some yogurt, fruit, and beans... but not all in that order.
At weigh in today, I lost .2 pounds. It wasn't that much, but it wasn't a gain either.
All-in-all, I am feeling GOOD.
THEN... I go to Target to buy 8s to keep at the house as a goal to reach towards. I tried them on thinking that I was going to laugh at how hard it was going to be to put them on... and then something magical happened!! They FIT!!!! My stomach was a bit squished... but totally honestly, that is still the biggest part of me Regardless, the 8s fit!!! Who knew that they could. I didn't even think it would ever be possible!! 8s!!! I now feel confident that I can wear only 8s by the summer!!!!
However, it got me thinking about my stomach. Sometimes it is very frustrating... I want it to shrink SO bad. It seems to hang there. I know it's smaller, but it doesn't ever seem to be proportionate to the rest of my body. I wish I could just suck it out. But, I know that's not an option. I have to keep working for it. Knowing that it will get smaller. Sometimes when I look at it I think, "Blech!" However, when I think back to where it was, I can keep in mind how far I have come. I have contemplated showing those pictures here, those pictures of my body since day 1 of weight watchers, but since I am in my under garments, I have decided against it. Or perhaps it's just scary showing people that part of me that I was so embarrassed about. I've worked hard not to look that way anymore.
Anyways, I am off to do a ton of work. However, I am going to try and check-in as much as I can. Update you all about the 5K! And take some pictures of my new sweet clothing! :-)
Happy Almost Wednesday.
