Hanging in there and floating along.

Friday, July 28, 2017

I've lost over 60 pounds which is changed my energy level significantly. I ride my bike between 8 to 10 miles up to five times a week or more. My weight loss has been at a standstill. This is because of my own doings. I still have more weight I want to lose, but at least I am continuing to exercise and log my calories. I went tubing a few weeks ago and it feels so good to know that I could fit in a tube. It feels good to paint my toenails without a struggle to reach them. It feels good to sit in a chair with arms and actually be comfortable. I like being able to walk outside and have the energy to go do things. I'm thankful for God getting me this far, without Him I would not have been able to this. This blog is mostly to remind myself of things that I'm able to do now with ease things that were very hard at nearly 300 pounds. Things like walking up a staircase, a hill, parking far away from my destination, not dreading to sit in a booth when the seat doesn't move , and the list goes on. For the first time in years I put on a swimsuit that looked presentable. I actually was okay with the way I looked. If anyone reads this and has just began their Journey, I want you to know it is possible, take it slow, and don't beat yourself up along the way. I learned a lot about how to save calories by ordering my my food the way I wanted it prepared. When eating out take charge of your food tell them little to no oil , take off the sauce put it on the side, no cheese, and ask for steamed vegetables instead of a potato. This counts at fast foods too! Picture of the river I went tubing down.

    Great photo. I love the photo and love tubing. I do need to speak up more consistently when eating out! Thanks for the reminder.
