1-99 SparkPoints 72

I remember when I was 19 years old, I changed my diet, worked out 3 times a week for an hour which included running and loved it. I was 215 lbs when I started this. Within 30 days, I lost 15 lbs and 6 inches off my waist. I still have those pictures. Now the whole time I did this was not for weight loss. It actually was a 30 day fast because I was seeking God for something and he gave it to me and the weightless was the benefit. Now after the fast was up, I continued to eat right and work out. The whole time I still thought I was a size 20. I started in a size 20 and wore a size 20 before the fast. At the end of the fast I was wearing a 14. BBBBBBUUUUUUTTTT MENTALLY, I WAS STILL A SIZE 20. I found this out one day by an incident that occurred. I needed to do laundry and my husband wanted me to go somewhere with him. I told him I needed to wash something first so I could have something to wear. He said put on a pair of my slacks and you will be fine. I looked at him like he had lost his mind. Me wear your pants. You have a skinny waist and I am so big. I would never be able to put on your pants. He said, "Girl put them pants on so we can go." I stepped into the pants, and pulled them up and buttoned them. I even had extra room in them. I was speechless. I almost went into shock when he asked me what was wrong. I told him I could not believe, I could fit your pants.
I wrote about this because I have lost 22.5 lbs since Nov. I was looking in the mirror because I have hit a plateau. Beginning to start to feel bad and then I just happen to run across some pictures of me in a dress before I started my newest lifestyle change. I realized, my face was smaller so I took some pictures. I then began to fuss at my brain because I have come so far and my brain was like I haven't done anything. I remember, I have been here before. My perception has been distorted before. I need to look at myself for real and realize I am making progress. Although I have hit a plateau, I know I can keep going. So guess what.
One day at a time. One pound at a time and I am going to do my part, so my body can do its part. Remember, Enjoy life.
