I don't know if anyone else has done this, but I used to think that it would be so wonderful if I could just FEEL how good I would feel if I lost weight. I have been heavy for so long that if I could only feel how it would feel, I might actually BELIEVE that I could do it. Well, that never happened, but after a year of work, I've lost a bunch of my extra weight. It's still not real to me sometimes, though I feel better and look better, I still feel like a slob sometimes. My head hasn't caught up, I guess.
Well, my 10 year old jumped on the scale today and was remarking that she is 90 pounds. I've lost just under 100! So, we were playing around this evening and I grabbed her hands over my shoulders and pulled her up onto my back and was carrying her around the living room. It was insane that I used to carry more than her weight around all day! I honestly don't know how my poor feet took it! It was like the part on the Biggest Loser where they make them strap all their lost weight back on themselves and run! Thank god I didn't have to do that....my knees would probably explode!
It was really cool to set her down and have that moment when I knew, no matter what my heads tells me, that I've made a huge change in myself! What an awesome feeling!
