Today I crossed two milestones.
The first - I have lost a total of 26 pounds!!!
The second, of which I forgot and my partner reminded me - I have been a non-smoker for exactly seven years!!!!!!
I am so proud of myself for both achievements, for at one point in my life I doubted that I was capable of conquering either.
So I've spent time today purposefully allowing myself to feel happy about my achievement. I could easily have given myself the message "good for you, now onto the next challenge" (the next two pounds, for example). Which, after all this hard work, time and energy, would not have been very nice of me.
So instead, I've given myself this experience. I'm owning what I've done. I'm feeling a great sense of satisfaction and I'm acknowledging the importance of what I've achieved.
And who achieved this?!
I truly believed that the amount I weighed was the one thing in my life over which I'd never get control.
It's so nice to be proven wrong!
Through this transformative journey I'm giving myself a sense of control over my own life, and that is so very precious.
Once I've worked off the same amount of weight I've worked off so far, I will be 200 pounds.
I've done it once, so I can do it again.
One pound after that I will not longer be in the 200's.
But for now, I'm very pleased with today's numbers!
...I'm very pleased...with Me!!!
