It's so interesting how my mindset has changed over the last month. I feel very mature. I feel like I'm facing all my issues and being responsible. And let me tell you... this being accountable thing is really nice. In fact, I really feel like this is a lifestyle change... not just a diet or something I'm dreading. I'm really lovin' who I am becoming here. I am also getting so motivated by reading blogs. I may not comment on everyone's blogs all the time... but I read them daily. I love reading what others are going through... and how the got past an obstacle... how they may have slipped and their plans to get back on track.. and of course the wonderful successes. I get so happy when people are having awesome days. Some I even know like 'so and so is going to be weighing in tomorrow... I can't wait to read how she did' .... lol and well with that I have a confession to make... I am no longer addicted to farming on farmville. (I don't know where I found the time to tell you the truth) I think blogging is my newest addiction..... but it plays in my favor because it's part of my weight loss therapy! Oh I love it.. lol.
So I mention yesterday I went to the Magic Kingdom. Well it was cold like in the low 50's during the afternoon and then when the sun went down it was in the 40's... and that's cold for Florida. Well I wore jeans, a shirt, and a sweater. Normally I hate the feeling of wearing my jeans... because they are size 16s... and they are super tight in my tummy area (and I refused to buy 18s) Well... .... they weren't so tight yesterday! Then today I wore a pair of capris that are Stretch 16s... and they were falling off! It really feels good to be losing the weight and changing my size. I carry the most of my weight around my stomach and I know that is a danger zone. I've been worried about it and now I'm actually doing something about it! This is really an empowering feeling!
Another confession: I bought the GoWear Fit! Why is this a confession? Because I literally can't afford it. Oh thank you plastic charge card that loves to be there for my impulse buys... only to charge me an arm and a leg of interest later. I got it off of amazon.com. <-- this is the actual link for the arm band on amazon. I'm really excited! GoWear Fit is much like the Body Bugg (which if you are a biggest loser fanatic like me... then you know that its a much needed indulgence). There is the armband which is:
- Clinically proven to accurately track calories, steps, physical activity levels and sleep efficiency
- Helps you set healthy weight loss goals – and reach them
- Easy-to-use Online Activity Manager helps you monitor your progress over time
- Optional Display gives you minute-to-minute updates
- Gives convenient access to your data
- Can be worn as a watch, or clipped to your shirt, pants or bag
Well folks.. that's about it for now.... now I shall go read some more blogs..
