I made an incredible discovery last night. I knew I started my Weight Watchers journey for the last time in August of 2010…But I didn’t really realize that was THIS MONTH! I went to my etools to check my exact start date…And wouldn’t you know…it’s this week! August 16, 2010. At first I was like woah I can’t believe it! And then it hit me…Its been TWO years and I’m still not at goal. This
was is a rush of so many emotions. The past 6-8 months has been one of success and set back, success and set back…I’ve never been “off plan” in two years, but like everyone I too, have my “off” times. But after really thinking about the past two years this is what I realized…
What have I done in 2 years:
[Lost] a lot of weight (obviously, ha!) [Gained] a lot of confidence.
[Changed] my body shape.
[Evolved] my mind.
[Left] the plus size section.
[Walked] my first 5k. [Ran] my first mile without stopping. [Ran] my first 5k. [Ran] my frist 5 miles without stopping. [Ran] my first 10 miles without walking. [Ran] my first half marathon.
Did my first [real] pushup. Did 70 [real] pushups in a row.
[Saw] my abs. [SAW] MY ABS. (i like this one.)
[Lowered] my cholesterol. [Lowered] my lipids. [Gained] energy. [Stopped] weight related painc attacks.
[Quit] eating fast food (Not becuase you have to, remember you can eat ANYTHING!)
[Shared] clothes with my [healthy] sized friends.
[Learned] to ENJOY healthy food. [Learned] moderation.
[Experienced] true happiness.
[Left] an undesired statistic group. [Became] a statistic not many people become.
[Proved] anything is possible if you are willing to work. [Accepted] anything is possible if you are willing to work.
And lastly, [learned] to [BELIEVE] in [MYSELF].
So while I am not at goal weight yet, what I have done for myself in two years is forever life changing and I couldn’t be more proud of myself.
