For my weight loss, I’d like to thank the Academy, my supportive husband, the Couch to the 5K, myfitnesspal.com, Zumba for making me shake my ass off- literally, yoga, fruits, vegetables, egg white breakfast sandwiches, the b**** from the grocery store, Lily & Daisy for lots of long walks, and oh yeah, the big guy himself- God!! With Him, all things are possible.
A teeny part of me actually feels a bit sad. Not sure why. Maybe because it was the last physical reminder that she was here? But, mostly I feel proud 🙂 I’m healthier now than I was before. I exercise regularly and eat better too (for the most part). I can thank Callie for these things. Every time I was about to give up, I would imagine all the things she went through in her short life. And then I would realize that I was being a total wuss, tell myself to suck it up and keep going.
So what now? I’m going to focus on keeping it up after I go back to work. I think that will be a big challenge for me because I tend to make a lot of excuses when I’m tired after working a full day. (Don’t we all?)
Thanks for all of your encouragement and love along the way.
