Gayle & kykaree - great successes! I have a couple to share...
I had my body fat measured today at the YMCA. It's gone from a 2/14/2005 reading of 39.5% down to 34% today!
I think the biggest non-scale victory of all, however, has been in my thought patterns. Going grocery shopping is exciting for me now, with all those healthful and delicious choices just waiting to go in my cart and into my kitchen. I've found that I really *love* eating right, love coming up with recipes that make those good choices really shine.
It's exciting when you see how your mind really CAN change if you stick with something long enough. It's amazing to me.
I'm shrinking, yes, but that's just a part of the whole wonderful package deal.
The fitness lady at the YMCA today asked me if Howie and I would write an article about our weight loss and what we're doing to become fit; she wants to put it in the brochure. How cool is that? It's really humbling, and it's exciting to know we have the potential of encouraging so many people. You can bet 3FC will get a hearty mention!
