Start Your Diet Today!

Up early today…

Well I’m actually up early every morning but today I got up early, walked for 28 min and enjoyed a soyburger for breakfast–Yum!  I walked in a new area today and I liked the fact that it’s on a small grade, so I could feel that slight incline and it made me feel good that I took my walking up a notch (even if it’s just a small notch!)  I also used my exercise ball for 10 min last night.  Not breaking any records here but every little bit helps!

I seem to be getting back in my grove.  Once I got under 200#s I swear it’s like I had to take a break.  I still ate good and got in my minimum of exercising but I stopped pushing myself to the next level.  I really don’t think that’s a bad thing, just needed a break and I felt like my body needed time to adjust. 

I keep visiting the 3FC site and am amazed to see people who are similar height and weight to me and I think to myself “Wow, they look great!”  Then I think, “Do I look like that?”  I think we always magnify our own flaws and have a hard time looking at ourselves and saying that we actually look OK.  I Don’t want to become conceited I just think I need to look at myself in a more positive light and not focus on my flaws, I need to focus on what’s nice about me…like my newly discovered collarbone, my high cheekbones that are finally showing through, etc….I also have to focus on the fact that a year ago I was fighting to get into 22/24 pants and now I’m in size 14.  I’m starting to take more care with the way I look trying to dress nicer and be more feminine.  I used to live in jeans and tennis shoes, and yes they are still a staple, but now I have some summer tanks, sandles, dressy tops, and dressy shorts in my wardrobe. 

I’m making baby steps here but each one takes me closer to my goal.

    What an inspiation you are. I’m on my way to getting out of the 200’s and I keep looking at my colorbone in the mirror which I can see a little more everyday so it was hilarious to read your post and know that someone else “wanted a collarbone” just like me. LOL! Keep up the great work!
