Topic: RE: Progress on the inside :)
I have had great success with my band, food choices, and workouts I do at the gym (band doesn't get all the credit for my journey). I mean I am less than half the girl I once was so that's pretty nice. Still like so many I look in the mirror and and wish the skin were tighter or the girls didn't decide to become bowling ball bags and sag in the middle...
But most days I just go through my day and do what I do...I don't tend to dwell on the things that have not changed yet, but they do cross my mind when I see someone with more of what I want to look like... (generally she is about 20 and has obviously never given birth)...ANYHOW
Steve's sisters family is visiting from Conn. and I had several trips planned for us,
Sunday we went to Concord Mall (its a nice big mile long mall),
Monday we went Laptop hunting for my son for the better part of the day (Stan is a comp junky and was able to get Joey a great machine),
Tuesday we went to the Zoo and walked all day.
Wednesday was the family reunion that we had at my house since I have the acre back yard for everyone,
Thursday we hit Carowinds to walk around and hit the coasters and waterpark,
Friday we drove to the beach and spent the day at Myrtle Beach walking and swimming in the ocean.
Today is Saturday and our company is gone....and I just realized something...the old Swoosh would not have been able to walk all those places or ride on those coasters or have even CONSIDERED putting on that swimsuit and walking around in front of all those people...I mean what would they think?
LOL oh ya that's right...NEW SWOOSH doesn't care what they think...and spent no time dwelling on how different she is or isn't from everyone else. She walked and talked around the animals with her son, boyfriend, and extended family. She had 42 at her home and wasn't worried about how much she ate in front of them. She rode all the big coasters and NOT once had a problem fitting in the seats! She swam at the waterpark and didn't feel out of place. She walked the two mile trail at the zoo and g ranted her knees hurt a bit when done but after the knee injuries and surgeries....acceptable...the knees held up and I was able to do it! Walked the beach all day, laid on the sand, swam in the ocean and flirted with Steve....it was very nice :)
Have I lost any weight this week...you know I don't know....but I know my confidence is doing better :) Going shopping today for things to rebuild a wall in my barn and might hit the drive-in tonight :) Its been a very nice week :)
....just keep swimming
I am a work in progress...perhaps never completed or perfected; but forever working to change for the better...
