Ten Pounds of Flour and Five Pounds of Sugar

   I reached another milestone today. It was so strange in Yoga class as I sat in a different body from six weeks ago.

   This is really big for me because I am entering a body weight I have not seen since 1998. Here are some things that are amazingly wonderful and those that are scary.

Amazingly Wonderful:
  1. I have a new wardrobe of clothes from the back of the closet.
  2. My knees are getting smaller as the inflammation goes down.
  3. I weigh less than my husband
  4. My green jacket, which I love, zips shut and moves across my hips.
  5. I can go to a Pilates class and jump on my mini-tramp for 30 minutes in one day and not be dead.
  6. I sleep much better.

A Little Scary:
  1. I feel cold more often
  2. I miss salty snacks.
  3. My pants are getting too big and I need to save for a clothes budget.
  4. People look at me and I feel a little self conscious.

  My truly best friends are my calorie counting app on my phone and my mini tramp. I am ordering a new one with more spring. Soon I will jumping so high that I will hit my ceiling. I should put that on my "A Little Scary" list.
   The cheaper one, of course.
