Today, after work, I had to go to the pet store and get a bag of dog food for my dogs. There's nothing exciting about that, I admit, but bare with me. Anyway, I strolled past the cats and kittens that are up for adoption...move on, girl, you don't need any more critters right now. So I got my bag of chow and checked out, loaded the bag in the car and drove home.
When I got home I hefted the bag of food out of the car and headed for the house. Dang, that bag was heavy. I could feel my legs working harder to make it up the slight incline of the driveway. I was huffing and puffing and moving so slow and labored. It was, after all, a 35 lb bag of dog food.
Then it dawned on me - 35 lbs! That's how much I've lost so far! Look how I'm struggling with this 35 lb bag of dog food. When I sat the bag down there was instant relief. I felt so much lighter! I could really tell the difference a few pounds makes. I can't wait till I've lost a 50 lb bag of chow!
The Morning Glory rides are really making a difference in my daily attempt at this lifestyle change diet thing. I'm not as hungry during the day and I even seem to be smiling at total strangers more often. Not that I'm not friendly, but I've been so used to feeling invisible that I don't always connect with people when I'm out and about. But today, at the post office and at the pet store, it seemed I was drawn to the faces around me. Hmmmm. Cool. :)
Have a great Friday and don't forget to drink your water!
