Default Say HELLO to the NEW me!

Just wanted to share these thoughts from my journal this a way of saying THANK YOU to all who have helped me get here....

I just wanted to jot down my thoughts this morning. I feel so good, so positive, focused and motivated.....and it's hard to pinpoint where its coming from exactly or where I turned the corner. This is so unlike me, really, but now feels like its permanently engrained. Like there was this "old me" and a "new me" and I've said goodbye to the old me forever....and I don't miss her one little bit.

I rarely look at a donut, for example, and feel my salivary glands kick in..... I just look at it with this neutral feeling of.....well, nothing! I don't seem to have the same old emotional attachments to certain foods like I used to. I have my "treats" now, but they are in the form of fruit and sugar-free jello (w/ whipped cream of course!) and those satisfy me just like a snickers bar would have in the "old days".

The old me would cringe at the thought of vigorous exercise and sweating (yech!)....but now I beat my alarm every morning with the thought of "Is it time for my workout yet????? and I bound out of bed! I love every sore muscle and planning my BFL workouts. WHO IS THIS PERSON?!??!?? I better get used to her, 'cause she is here to stay! I LOVE THIS PERSON!!

And it doesn't matter to me whether my progress is slow or fast. I have developed patience beyond any previous experience. Progress is progress and even if it's slow, it's better than regression (gaining fat inches).

I have 100% more energy.
I have 500% more confidence.
I am rarely cranky or moody.
I have very few PMS symptoms.
My heart rate is down.
I don't have blood-sugar crashes 4 times a day.
My skin is brighter and eyes are clearer.
I FEEL FULLY ALIVE! Just like when I "found" God. It's the same feeling. TOTALLY awesome.

And this board has been fully responsible for my progress. THANK YOU ALL!!
