Who is that women....

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

I had a great day at work.
We went to dance class today. I got an extra 90 minutes of exercise in dancing and doing stretching. It's so much fun and hey they pay me to do it, What more can I ask for.

We also got to look at the video that was made of the Christmas party we had on Sunday. It was great fun watching and hearing us sing. As I watched the 30 minute video I was looking for myself, I could not see me , but I know I was in the back row and...I did see a face I did not really recognize, so I went and got my glasses , One of the girls said what are you trying to see and I said "who is that women right there, and about 10 people yelled ...That's you silly..(bet you all guessed that didn't you)..Oh ya I said that's myself I said I look like that....I looked thinner than I thought I looked, it was a scary moment to see me as others see me....I can't remember when I looked that thin....then it came to me.. that is the face I had as a child, I have my communion picture and that's the face.....I had mixed emotions....
and then thought OMG your there, you are going to start a new year the first time in your adult life( maybe since about 13) where you are not thinking about how much weight I have to loose this new year. I guess it makes me feel a bit better telling myself, you have to maintain your weight.
New feelings new emotions new adventures as the normal weight women.
I must say being a normal weight women has a lot of advantages.....

okay enough for tonight, I'm going to soak in the hot tub with Gary for a while then off to bed. I have to get up and get a good work out in.

Sleep well my dear Spark People Friends

    The psychological impact of losing weight didn't really hit me until I hit goal and started to maintain. I realized that my whole adult life had been spent either being naughty or good. It was weird to just be. As time goes by, you will adjust to the new physical you and the new you mentality. Enjoy this whole new phase of your life! There are so many new things to explore and try that you couldn't do before you had the confidence that conquering weight issues brings! It's so great you have the support of a wonderful husband. I can tell you first hand, that makes a big difference!!

    You looked amazing when we got to meet for the first time! And you are down to your goal, I think this is so wonderful and motivating, I remember having those same emotions when I started noticing that I needed smaller clothes! It was a very mixed feeling, yes, I will agree with that, but, at the same time it was so wonderful to realize that I had come that far! Once again, you look amazing, you are down to your goal, now, it is all about MAINTAINING from here! Thank you for being the ever-inspiring woman that you are! I will be calling you as soon as I get my minutes back on my phone, gotta pay the bill tomorrow I think... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Such a great story! We do often not see ourselves as others do. I've lost about 50 pounds and while I *know* I've lost it and I'm wearing 4 sizes smaller, I still don't *see* it. When I look at my before and current pic (not after yet since I have 15 pounds to go) I can really see it, but everyday....I still see the old me. Great job and congratulations on starting the new year maintaining instead of losing!
