Weekly Weigh-In: 223.0
Loss from last week: -1.8
Total weight loss: 2.4
Wow. 1.8 pounds down in a week! I'm so excited to be able to say that. I also love the weekly reflection that allows me to simultaneously start new and consider my past successes/mistakes.
Yesterday I was without a car and biked 5 miles to get to the places I wanted to go. After getting off the bike, my legs still wobbling a little and sweat dripped down my face and back and I felt beautiful. I was so grateful for my body's ability to transport me from home to my destination and back again, for the muscles ready for the next step. I kept my body hydrated in the warm summer weather, and it rewarded me with energy and brilliance.
I want my body to be in tune with the brilliance I felt yesterday - a beautiful creation that needs sustenance to thrive spiritually, mentally, and physically. I want to be healthy and incorporate good eating practices and exercise so that I can always feel like I'm shining.
I don't need to be thin to feel those things, but I do want to be thinner so that brilliance comes easier. Weighing less is a by-product of that brilliance, and it also happens to come with cuter clothes.
