I’ve talked about how my life has changed since I started losing weight, but I haven’t talked about it much lately. My body is capable of so many things that were impossible at almost 400 pounds! I can run…I can do jump squats, side planks and many other things that I didn’t know would be possible at this point. And the difference in my balance is astounding!
But I’m still looking forward to so many things! I want to ride a roller coaster (once) just because I can fit. I want to shop at stores that are not exclusive to plus-size shoppers though I am thankful for those stores like Sealed with A Kiss that keep me fashionable now! And I want to run 5 miles on an average day…just because.
One thing that I’m looking forward to the most is wearing stilettos. I wear heels now, but I stick to wedges for the most part because I won’t break the heel. 😉 I dream of the day that I can wear this classic pair of Manolo Blahnik heels, or you know, a similar pair that costs less than $800.00. Ha!
It’s just one example of something that I’m really looking forward to as I approach my goal. I often say that if I had known that losing weight could be this rewarding, I would have started a long time ago. I can do so many things that I couldn’t do before, and as my body shrinks the list of things that I can do with ease grows.
What’s on your list? Have you lost weight and gained the ability to do things that seemed impossible previously? Are you on your own journey…waiting for the day that you can do something that seems impossible now? I want to hear about it! Please take a moment tell me about the changes your experienced or hope to experience. I can’t wait to hear about it!
