Today marks an important milestone in my new, healthier life. I’ve officially lost 10 pounds. Yesterday, I did 30 minutes on the elliptical machine at the gym. This is quite an accomplishment. The first time I got on that machine 3 weeks or so ago I did 6 minutes and thought my chest would explode and my legs would fall off.
It’s amazing, and humbling, to realize how out of shape I was. I’m not out of the woods yet, but, I’m losing a little weight, gaining back some flexibility and feel much healthier. I had one of those “aha” moments yesterday when I reached down to tie my shoes and it wasn’t uncomfortable. Wow. That’s telling, isn’t it?
So, good-bye first 10 pounds. I hope I never see you again. I’m looking forward to reporting the next milestone on my way to finding that thinner, healthier person who’s trapped underneath all this blubber.
