How can I possibly describe how good it feels to be in control of my body? I feel so good. I feel amazing and light. Holy crap! I feel SKINNY!
I am by no means skinny...but I am feeling so slim! So far, I've lost 18.5 pounds. I am more than half way to my goal of 33 pounds. I have hit a landmark on the scale. A new decade. I feel like I have my life back.
It's more than the number on the scale, it's how my body feels at this new low. I am running and working out with weights. I feel strong. I feel healthy. I am eating a vegetarian diet and using vegan protein powder from Arbonne to supplement two of my meals during the day. I consider those to be snacks. My other meals consist of fruits and vegetables and some (a few) whole grains and nuts.
I am well on my way and I feel great about it. I can't see going back. I have a new attitude about all of it. I am thinking long term. I am thinking about how I'll look in a year instead of trying to lose it all by next month. I am thinking in terms of being healthy and fit and able for the rest of my life. I am not trying to starve myself or make myself into anyone anybody else thinks I should be. I am honestly doing this for me. For a change.
