Default Three short months, and I'm so different

This weekend I went away with three friends: we drove there together and shared a motel suite. I'm a classic introvert, and so whilst I was looking forward to the trip, I knew that might find it difficult not to have anytime to myself for the whole weekend.

Three months ago I would have spent the whole time plotting to slip away and buy some junk food, partly to get away from everyone, and partly to comfort myself. This weekend, I spent the whole time plotting when I could slip away to the motel gym! I managed it on Saturday afternoon, and two of my friends came with me, but I was the first person there and the last to leave.

One of the friends, who I haven't seen in ages said she couldn't believe how much I'd changed. The last time I saw her we got lost and walked twenty minutes out of our way, and I got so exhausted and annoyed by the time we found where we were going.

It's only been three months, but I am so different it's a bit scary. I went away to a food and wine weekend, and trying out a rowing machine was one of my highlights!

That is SO wonderful. Great job. It feels good when folks notice and you've shown that you have a different relationship with food.

THat is wonderful to hear that you were in a healthy mind set for even the weekend..
A lot of people say the weekend is there time and then they binge and dont exercise and then they get all upset when they get on the scale because it is up.

Hope you had a nice time it sounds like you did and again way to go...

That's what is so cool about getting in shape and losing weight. While we sometimes focus on the number on the scale (I do it too), it is so great to be rewarded with feeling better and changing attitudes!!
