My Summer at a Healthy Weight

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Ok, so maybe I don't LOOK buff and fit - but I am at a healthy weight, I am extremely active, and I look better than I ever did in my 20s. Of course, I did spend my 20's having children, so I'm sure that has something to do with it.

It has been so nice putting on a bathing suit and feeling pretty good. There are pieces of me that I'd like to change, but I know that after having children - it's probably just not going to happen without plastic surgery or starving myself completely. I'm turning a few head again, even of younger guys. That is weird, but it's kind of fun too. I got invited to go on a party bus by a bunch of young people the other day, while leaving a grocery store. I guess they couldn't tell how old I was, or didn't care. Of course, did not go, but that was definately a first!

Ok, so this is all sounding really superfacial. Looks aren't everything, but it is nice to feel like this. I can't help it, it's just nice. My friends are being super complimentary of me too. They say that they don't even recognize me. Other than a tan and lighter hair from sunshine, I haven't changed THAT much. I think it's how I feel inside that is showing through. I can't help but be happy and excited about being healthy.

I think what makes this all so great is that I spent the last 3 years visualizing this version of myself. The me I was afraid wasn't going to happen. I visualized this summer, these feelings - and they are here! Now losing a few more pounds is more exciting.

I'm looking forward to the fall, and being a better Sparker with more time on my hands. This website has been such an amazing life changer! I never would have thought about breaking free from so many self imposed limits without Sparkpeople.com. KEEP ON SPARKING EVERYONE!

    Not superficial at all to enjoy the attention of others! When you look good, you feel good and others notice! Congrats!
