Unfamiliar feels

 

The biggest of things happened this morning. I stepped on the scale and for the first time in as long as I can remember – I’m under 200 pounds. I did a little happy dance and teared up for a sec.

Here’s the thing. For the first time, I’m not doing this for anyone else or what they think. I’m not buying some product to make me thin. I’m not doing anything weird. This time, it’s just me getting real about what I want in life – and that’s to be healthy. To be a friend to my body instead of an enemy. And it’s a really cool feeling.

So, onederland is new territory but so is this realization that it’s possible to change and I’m not stuck.

I’ve decided that a lot of weight loss success is not metabolism, but mindset. For the first time ever, I find myself thinking about things I’ll do when I get to a certain weight and it’s not like a wish. It’s an expectation. It’s tangible. It’s happening.

Who knew.
