Day 322 - The Road to 32
Sunday, October 18, 2015
I loved Jane's (JJMPLSMN's) blog post today, and it has inspired me to give a title to my journey: The Road to 32.
When I started Spark, I had borrowed a pair of 40" waist pants from my dad for my niece Amie's wedding, because I didn't have any dress pants that fit. I hated how I looked in those pants, and felt nothing but despair. I knew then that as soon as I was completely well and had the blessing of my surgeon, that I was going to start getting back to a healthy weight.
Not quite two months later, I found Spark. My life changed again, and I dedicated myself to healthy living in all its facets. I've lost 45 pounds, and am not only slender but amazingly fit. I feel fantastic!
Today at Costco, I bought a pair of 32" waist pants. No dressing rooms, so I couldn't try them on. Got them home and tried them on. They fit perfectly, and I'm going to wear them to church tomorrow.
I wasn't planning on getting into a size 32 again, but I'm glad it happened. Achieving this has given me more than just confidence. It has given me satisfaction, gratitude, self-esteem, and inner beauty.
So think about your own journey and where you'd like it to take you. Embrace the road you're on, knowing that it will take you somewhere amazing, one step at a time.
