I got rid of these 46 lbs I did not LOSE them!

This week I read a motivational quote that has resonated with me and I thought that I would share it with spark people because if it resonated with me maybe it would resonate with someone else and help them too.
I found this on Pinterest.
Losing weight. So I never really thought that much of the expression "losing weight". Maybe that is what I have been afraid of it my whole life. Think about it. We lose keys, our pocket book or the remote control. We go nuts looking for it. But when we lose weight we are not looking for it. No we do not want to find those pounds! Yet I have felt CHAINED to the feeling that when I LOSE it I will FIND it again. So I am sorry, like the big 2x clothes that I was sporting and my size 18/20 pants that I wore, I have "gotten rid" of 46 lbs and I have no intentions of FINDING them again! I was quick to go through my closets a couple of months ago and put everything in a basket to give away. I let my daughter peruse through the clothes first and have had all intentions of dropping the rest off but it has sat on a basket in my bedroom for 2 months now. I am bagging them up today and 'GETTING RID' of them. No chance of me finding a reason to wear them again!
Getting Rid of 46 lbs was hundreds no maybe thousands of decisions that I made over the past 6 months. I decided to reduce carb intake. I made the choice to substitute pasta with zoodles. I have chosen meat roll ups, cucumber boats or lettuce wraps instead of sandwiches with bread. I have consciously cut down the amount of alcohol I drink. I consciously drink more water and have reduced the amount of coffee I have drank. It was not one thing that I did that made those pounds hit the curb it was a series of things that I chose to do. And none of them make me feel deprived. I feel EMPOWERED by the results. I did not drop them or misplace them... I got rid of those pounds for good! I know that if I slack on the habits that helped rid me of them I might replace them but Heck No!!!
I am kicking these lbs to the curb for good!
