Sunday morning weightloss thoughts

I haven’t really lost any weight. STILL. I did weigh myself yesterday (237) without jeans and I’d lost a pound and a half. I put that on my tickers, because I needed some success, but it doesn’t feel like it really counts. I didn’t weigh myself today. Yet.

BUT that doesn’t mean I’m totally despairing. YET. I am noticing some changes in my body. My bones and muscles feel harder – that is, I can feel them in places I normally can’t. I especially notice on my shoulders and back. And I can reach places I couldn’t before on my back. My legs look a little slimmer to me. I can sit with my legs folded longer (and not have my feet fall asleep). My jaw line feels sharper. 

Plus I have more energy. I’m willing to do more things. I’m not always sleepy (unless I sit around a lot). I can walk further, survive water aerobics (and really look forward to it), make myself get up and do things or go places, even if there’s a lot of walking. 

Also, I feel more willing to do stuff around the house. I put away laundry this morning and didn’t mind at all. I went out and took care of chickens yesterday, and didn’t dread it. 

I think this whole thing is going to be so great! Not only will I feel better and look better, and get to wear cuter clothes (which, let’s face it, was my #1 reason for having surgery), but I may cure some of my laziness. 

Now, if I could find a way to enjoy grading essays, life would be great!
