Thoughts and Observations on my Weight Loss...

Just a few observations and thoughts...

First - I used to be a person that HATED the heat. I didn't like heat at all I didn't tolerate it and I would stay inside if I could help it and not go out all summer! My first long walk/run outside was on a day when the temp was 100+ and I did very well. I didn't realized how well until a week later I was talking to others about it and they asked me if the heat bothered me and I had to tell then, no it didn't. I guess all that fat I had turned me into a big human oven! Now losing part of it has made me tolerated the heat better and made my bodys cooling system more efficient.

Second - I have finally been able to take compliments from people who comment on my weight loss without saying either "its no big deal" or "I still have a long way to go" I can now simply say thank you very much and be proud of what I have done.

Third - my body loves to exercise and my body loves to stretch - my body does not like it when I am very active and I don't stretch afterwards. I walked a lot during the jazz festival and I should have stretched after, but I didn't and I had various aches and pains in my hips, knees and legs all the next day.

Fourth - Fleet Feet is my new favorite store!

Fifth - I can take a cheat day and not feel guilty about it anymore.

Sixth - My feet and ankles are very happy I'm lighter.

Seventh - Since getting a new bra that fits (got fitted at Nordstroms and got a size that fits me perfect!) my "shelf" that used to catch food while I eat has been empty! (sorry - I had to include this!! I'm very proud!!)

Here is to losing the next 50 pounds!!!! Thanks everyone for joining me on the journey of mine!!
