Yesterday when I went to Zumba, I saw someone I hadn't seen in a few months. My mouth dropped open because 1. She looked AMAZING!!! and 2. I didn't even know she was trying to lose weight!!!
After class I said, WOW! You look fantastic!!! I can see a enormous difference in your body!
and she said, "Thanks!, I've lost 23 pounds in the last couple of months."
23 pounds for a person who is already really fit and not overweight is a LOT. I wouldn't have thought she had 23 pounds to lose! It was SUCH AN INSPIRATION to me because it reminded me of how "okay" I looked before doing P90X and getting more serious about eating right versus how MUCH BETTER I looked after wards!
Now that I've seen her, I have this "oh no she's not gonna look this much better than me" attitude! ha ha (again...who knew I was so competitive???)
I'm finally starting to anticipate school being back in session just for the fact that I know I will do so much better with eating and exercise when I'm not entertaining and feeding the kids all day. Excuses, excuses...whatever...it's the truth. I hope I can start doing posts very soon about my own weight loss! Nothing drastic, but it would be nice to dissolve the layer of blubber that is covering over my hard-earned muscles!
Today, I'm teaching kickboxing and I plan to envision that Wave Master bag as a gigantic hamburger since I ate out TWICE yesterday and had a burger both times! ugh!
