She said, "I admire you." She paused, like she was going to say something else. Then she said, "for a lot of things. I admire you, let's leave it at that."
So cool to hear those words. I know that she loves me, but it's nice to hear the words and nice to know that people see what I do and how hard I work in my life.
I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago. When I first looked at them, I felt a little disappointed. I still have a belly and I am not as thin as I thought I was. But then I looked at them again, and took a good look at these pictures here and here and now I am very pleased with where I am and what I have achieved!
I am much thinner than I was. I put on a size 10 skirt that I bought before my Buddy was born and I was able to zip it up and feel comfortable in it! I ran, for the first time in my life, 3.77 miles the other day!
When I do my exercise videos, I am more confident and more flexible and able to do the yoga moves.
So I just have to brag...I know people don't like when others post about their workouts...but I am so darn proud of myself! I do the Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown when I can get out to run. One of the moves is a back bend pushup. I've never been able to do it before, but today I did! I only did one, but it proves that I'm getting stronger and I am so excited!!
I got nothing but words of encouragement. Through this weight-loss journey, I have gotten nothing but encouragement. I love to hear people tell me they can see how I am dropping the pounds. I love how much better my clothes fit. I love being able to run more than I ever have. And I especially love having the strength it takes to make the change.
I still have 30lbs I would like to lose and go down two more dress sizes. I know it might take another 6 months to get there, but I am willing to do the work. During the holidays will be the hardest, but I have an amazing support system in Oswald. He is always so willing to help me get my exercise in no matter what it takes.
