So, for the first time in a while, I finally got on the scale this morning. Now, I am still not comfortable saying exactly what my weight its, but I am happy to report that I have officially lost 25 pounds! YEAH!!!! Go ME!!! I should post a picture, but I will get to that on the next one. Just so excited for myself.
I came to the realization, with this weight loss and energy I now have, that age really is a state of mind. I am only 33 but until I started exercising and eating right, I felt more like 43. Now, I know I am not old. I have to remind myself of that constantly. It doesn't help that I live in College Station, home to A&M and 50,000 energetic college kids. I think living here has made me want to be a better, fit person. These kids are always running. I can't drive home from work without seeing multiple co-eds in nothing but a sports bra and shorts running their butt off. It used to piss me off, now its a motivator. I am looking better and feeling better and have the experience of my age to back me up. I am better than them. I am better with my kids, my husband, everything is better now that I feel good. So, wish me luck. I am going to be looking for some kind of race or walk to enter. I want a goal, not just my weight loss, to complete.
