I weighed in and did my bod pod test at 4:45 AM on Friday morning. (Yes, holy $%&^ that was early!) After weighing myself, getting in the bod pod and doing the test, I have had some amazing results! After six weeks I dropped 14 pounds, and a ton of body fat! I felt like this time around I am more lean, stronger, and more energetic about the choices I have made within the last few weeks. I feel like for myself anything is possible. The one thing that I am proud to say I stopped doing and will continue to not harp on, and not obsess over is the scale. I remember I had chatted with one of the owners of my gym around week three and had told him that I was frustrated because of course, the scale was not where I wanted it to be at that point during meltdown. The thing that he told me that I stuck with for the last few weeks was to not step on the scale. If I was eating right, working out and doing the things that I know I needed to do, he told me the scale would take care of itself. That had to be the one thing that I was proud of myself for doing after these six weeks.
If I could walk away with anything I have learned and felt strongly about was that the scale will no longer define me. I have become so much stronger and have not and will not let my weight stop me from accomplishing anything. I also feel that I am where I need to be now, and I have Ben on board with me. While being away for five weeks for work, he dropped 25 pounds! This was just by changing his eating habits, and staying active through working. Now, with him being home and more local he has decided to get back into working out, and also taking up jujitsu. I am SO proud of him. I know he is going to have so much success and I can not wait to walk and even run through this new journey with him!
The next step in my journey is to try more new things! I am now taking gymnastic classes on a regular basis, and working out in new and different ways. I have decided that I am really wanting to try surfing. A wonderful couple at my gym surfs on a regular basis along the Oregon Coast so I decided, what the hell why not?! So very soon I will be testing out the waters. (With a wetsuit of course!) I am excited to see how this goes!
Nothing is impossible for me! I am making the impossible totally possible on a daily basis!
