I know I’ve posted these pictures before separately, but I put them together last weekend when I was feeling like I needed a reminder.
My life is so different now that I sometimes forget about the work it took to get here.
I forget that I’m capable of achieving something like a 110 pound weight loss.
I bought a couple of new dresses the other day – both a very comfortable size 10. I was shocked that I’ll likely wind up in the single digits.
I have NEVER bought an article of clothing in a single digit. Ever.
The small things are still so weird.
Jon and I volunteered to keep the walking group going – unofficially. I’m glad.
I showed up this week expecting to be the only person since it was slightly raining + nobody had really committed. 3 other people showed up, though, and walked with me. It was fun – and I definitely need the commitment to push me out the (work) door and do something.
I’m thinking about setting some sort of walking goal for myself for each week. 15 miles, maybe? I generally accomplish 6ish each weekend without much thought.
Typical Sunday mid-morning walk:
I still feel somewhat motivated to start jogging – so we’ll see.
Right now, I feel totally consumed by my job + commute. I met with the trainer this morning for the first time in a month, which is just not acceptable.
I’m working on better balance because there is NO WAY I can survive without more exercise – but it’s a slow process.
Jon is doing a paleo challenge right now, so hopefully he’ll have a pretty interesting change to report in 30 days or so.
I’m not fully participating because
I don’t like extremes of the sluggish gallbladder. High levels of fat have the potential to make me very sick. I am still easily maintaining, though, and am good with the way I continue to eat. Not much has changed.
(I have an appointment with a surgeon to talk about having my gallbladder removed – but IDK. It’s just BARELY functioning – but I’m not sure I want to deal with surgery.)
The allergy shots have SO been worth the expense + drama.
Back to his old self.
