weight loss to date:95 lbs(since Jan 2011)
I am so excited to be getting so close to 100 lbs lost total, but I am so much more excited about how it feels to be healthy. Granted, at 192 lbs, I may not be what most people would view as healthy, but I am the healthiest version of me that I have ever been. I sit and look through old photos of myself and keep wondering, "Why didn't anyone tell me how horrible I looked? Why didn't anyone question my health?" But, as they say, hindsight is 20/20. I only look back to motivate myself.
A couple weeks ago I experience my first "injury" since my transformation began. I was playing a fun game of dodgeball with the staff and kids at work. I literally threw the ball 2 times, got hit, and started to run off the court. I ran into another adult and over corrected my footing and ended up spraining my right ankle/foot. I spent that night in Urgent care waiting for x-rays. So, I taught the next day with a set of crutches and a wheely chair. :)
I think the most annoying part was having to take time to heal my foot. I couldn't do anything except for upper body workouts for a few days. After a week I went back to Zumba and have just been doing workouts as usual, but with a brace and maybe not pushing as hard as I usually would. I surely do not want another injury! I haven't been able to run yet, but I am really looking forward to it soon!
I got back to journaling all of my food this week. I downloaded an app in my phone so I can track anywhere I go. It really paid off and I am feeling like the last 5 lbs will be a lot easier to come off than I originally thought. All I really know is this:I will not give up. Once I hit 100( and celebrate with a tattoo) I will keep going! I just want to be healthy and happy. I finally feel like I am getting closer and closer to being as beautiful as my sisters!!
Transformation is happening RIGHT NOW!!!!
