when people ask how much I've lost and I tell them "82 lbs so far". Seriously, mouths drop open every time.
I'm so thankful for this new way of living. Sometimes when I think about who I was and who I am now, I'm quite startled. Like today. I took 3 classes - 1 hour Step aerobics, 1 hour Yoga/Tai Chi/Pilates and then this evening 45 minutes of Shbam Dance. Who is this girl? Oh yes, it's ME!
And yesterday..I was the girl who ran 3.1 miles without stopping. Who's that girl? Me! I can do so much more now than I ever imagined I'd be able to do. So sometimes I stand with my own mouth dropped open. When the scale went below 210 I stood in awe (and then did some happy dances) to see a 0 after the 2. Wohoo! Sometimes I get choked up when I walk by the Plus Sized section because I don't have to shop those tops anymore... Not because I'm sad, but because I've been liberated.
