I do, I really do feel pretty. I think it's the first time I felt truly good about myself in quite a while.
It's not that I've lost a ton of weight as of yet, but I know that I'm taking care of my body and that just makes me feel so good about myself.
I am so thankful that God has helped me to get ahold of the mindset I needed. I've often wondered why it is that sometimes I am in the 'right' frame of mind to start acting on what I know is true and other times I can't seem to get there to save my life. I haven't got any answers yet on that front, but if any of you do, please feel free to share.
The last couple of days have gone pretty darn well. Had dinner out last night with my family, well, part of my family. Jeremy and Kaitlin and I went to dinner while Hunter and Maddie went to the Friday night youth fest at a local church that they really enjoy. We had a nice time, split two dinners, an appetizer and even desert between us. But we brought some of it home. And most importantly, the portion that ended up on my plate, and ultimately down my gullet was very reasonable. It tasted heavenly, I felt no guilt and afterward, we took a walk to use up a bit of that fuel.
I'm very proud of myself for doing that last bit. I've been considering getting moving, but honestly, I've always HATED excercise. I like activity when I'm interested in it, but exercise for the sake of exercise has never been my thing. However, last night, I WANTED to walk. Yay! Jeremy and I are going to try to schedule evening walks into our lives now. Should be very good.
