I have been meditating this month and I have found that while meditating I keep coming back to the word satisfaction. And really that is what I am. I am satisfied. I am at a point in my life that I’m happy. When I set my weight loss and size goals I said… 180 lbs and a size 14. I said when I get there I’d learn to maintain and enjoy this. Well you know what, I am. I am anywhere from 178 and 183, I can wear a size 14 that doesn’t stretch and be comfortable. And the best part is, I AM LOVING IT!!!! I think that is why, the past three week I have enjoyed my exercise so much and why the scale hasn’t moved. Without really thinking about it I have put myself in maintenance mode. It’s what I wanted for years and years and years and I did that. I got to where I wanted to be ……
But I am part of a weight loss challenge, I am so into Allan and his budding buddies that I don’t want to quit. This challenge of Allan’s goes for another 50 days. 50 days to trim just a bit more off this body of mine. 10 lbs more. Something that’s manageable and obtainable in the next 50 days.
I have my year physical on the 25th of May. A full years ago I weighed in at 230, last August 204, this May in the 170’s. I want to see where my blood work comes out and I want to see if any of this has made a difference on the insides. I want to see if Dr. Cousins even notices without reading his notes.
So it’s the new menus, the exercises from the list and hopefully 3 times a week at the gym. Back to concentrating on but not obsessing on the last 10 lbs. I have got to tell you, this last 10 lbs has gotten more thought, more talking about, more planning then the first 50.
I have reached the NEW ME!!! I am SATISFIED with the new me. I am loving all that I can do. Now I’ll tweak it a bit and end up even better, healthier and full of smiles.
Take care my friends and have a blessed and awesome weekend.
