So this morning I got up and went to the Y, even though I didn't want to go. I ran 2.45 miles in 30 min, nothing stellar, but I did it. But before I went upstairs to run, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. And couldn't believe it was me! I haven't been this light since 2005, people! This is HUGE!
Anyhow, just had to flaunt the picture a little. It's the first time I've looked at myself and thought "Wow, you actually look GOOD!" That's a big step for me! I have a hard time admitting that I'm actually doing a GOOD JOB and making a difference in my life, both with physical activity and with my eating habits. It's a hard place to be to feel the same in my skin as when I was heavy. I don't feel like anything has changed, even though the numbers on the scale tell me different - and none of my old pants fit either!
