I just checked in....I'm not like Mandy Love, I don't get on here everyday like I should...as a matter of fact, it looks like it has been about 5 months...WOW, things have really changed for me.
I'm seeing numbers on the scales, I've never seen before...at least not that I can remember. I'm motivating others to move and becoming an athlete...most recently, I bought proper swim gear, and today I started swimming laps...wow.
A year ago, I was 55 pounds heavier and although I was on my journey, I wasn't going anywhere with purpose...now my goal is less about losing weight and more about becoming an athlete...I can run, but can I cycle, can I swim, can I play softball or basketball? Yes, please. I think I'll try a little bit of everything now.
I played catch with my 7 year old son the other day, for the first time ever. When we got home, he was bragging to Mandy about mom...that I could catch...he was surprised and genuinely HAPPY...that I was able and willing to spend time with him playing ball.
Crazy isn't it how things change...People often talk about how they were in such good shape...back in high school, college, my 20's...I'm looking to the future...at being in such good shape for the rest of my life.
