I am an Amazon shopper, I confess. I probably go to amazon at least 3x’s a day. Naturally, when Jen (One of the most fantabulous people on the planet. Her blog is Here) told me that I needed to invest in some kettle bells, I went to amazon to order.
My desire was to find pink ones…. but settled on 2 black ones. One is 10 lbs and the other is 15 lbs. –> Note to self to make the office/spare bedroom more exercise roomish<–. I was so excited to get them in the mail. I enjoyed the kettle bell portion of Jen’s personal training session back in the day. Yep, that is how we met if I didn’t mention it before.
We were out exploring and shopping over the holidays when I got the notice on my phone that they had been delivered to my door. WHOOP! WHOOP.. The only thing that could have made it better was if they were pink. Okay, enough with the pink, I heard ya.
When we got home I attempted to move the box from in front of the door with my foot, but it didn’t budge and it kinda hurt my foot. I hurried around the box to put down my packages and went to retrieve it from the doorway. When I bent down to pick it up, I remember thinking “CRAP, this box is FREAKIN heavy”. I almost left it and asked my father to come and pick it up. Lazy, yes I know.
I unpacked it and put them in a temporary home until I could decide on where they should live forever, or at least until the morning. When I crawled into bed later I still had the gitty feeling when you’re super excited about something. AND THEN IT HIT ME!! That box was 25 lbs. I have lost 25 lbs.
That box represented what I have lost up until that point in time. HOLY SHIT. How was I carrying that around with me, all day, everyday? I look in the mirror and can’t see the 25 lbs and I am guessing it will be that way for a while. Others tell me they can see it however, I suspect that they are just being nice.
SIDE NOTE: The weigh in from the photo above is from my last NUT appt, 3 of 3 completed. I keep my doctor’s office weigh inns on a separate app then my daily (yes, I weigh in daily). It’s easy to do since the dailies sync with my fitbit. My EGD is 1/13 and Psyc appt on 1/31, then submit to insurance. From my estimate I should have surgery sometime end of Feb or beg of March.. WHOOP! WHOOP!
