I've been at this point awhile, but I just have to share this NSV as I'm sure many of you can relate.
I was at the doctor's office today, waiting my turn, and the last time I was there was a year ago. I was sitting in the waiting room with my legs crossed, one over the other at the knee. I was reading my book, which was on my lap. While looking down at my book, I just noticed that I wasn't using the entire surface of the chair anymore. There was plenty of room to spare on either side, an inch or two, or more depending on where I looked. It was one of those moments where I had to just stop and savor it.
Just a year ago, I used the entire surface of the chair with little or no room to spare. Two years ago, I would have felt the arms of the chair pressing on my side or legs. I may have just chosen the two-seater type of chair that looks like two chairs side by side with no arm in the middle instead. Two years ago, I would not have been able to cross my legs at the knee, but may have chosen to cross my legs at the ankle instead.
It's moments like this that really help to keep me focused. I never want to use the whole chair ever again.
And then the doc gave me a congrats and WTG when he saw how much weight I lost since the last visit.
