I am feeling pretty proud of myself. I have no responsibilities at the moment, I could sleep in all day if I wanted (as long as I still did my dissertation work later!).
But I wake up around 7:30 and get myself to the gym, run my errands, clean the house and then settle in for some school work. Being lighter and fitter has given me a ton more energy.
Weighing in at 128.6 today. Pretty happy about that. I had two shots of tequila with a friend last night... didn't go over calories, didn't get trashed, but got a small buzz and had a lovely night. This is how I want to treat alcohol - once every few weeks, when it feels really right, and not going overboard :)
I still can't believe I am under 130. Being overweight for ten plus years, and then kind of plateauing at a low-but-I-am-still-not-happy weight for years really made me distrust myself and my abilities. Now I am where I have ALWAYS dreamed of being, even when I was a little chubby girl who pretended she was a hot-shot beauty :)
It feels so ephemeral, like it is all going to be whisked away from me. But I know the truth: if I keep working, being active, eating right... no one can take this away from me but me :)
I am working on getting my mind and body in sync... believing I am this person!
