This morning I took my fat test, and I scored in the still quite good at being fat range: 92.04%. That being said, in college, if I scored that on a test, I would be concerned because that A wouldn't hold up even a small hiccup on another test or project.... but this morning I am not feeling proud or confident or anything even remotely positive.
I have been at this new lifestyle for two months...I have lost nearly 8% of my body weight (over 20lbs) and maybe more importantly, I have really improved my fitness. I am probably a month away from being able to perform a "jogging motion" for an entire 5K.
Regardless of all that, I am still the fattest chick in the room, and yes, I almost always take a census. My attitude today worries me because I truly believed when I started on this journey that my primary goal was to get healthy. Mr. P and I spend a ton of time out on our boat, and becoming more physically fit will only make those experiences better....more tubing, maybe water skiing, easier time getting in and out of the boat. We want to take a trip to the Galapagos Islands with snorkeling, sea kayaking, hiking, and horseback riding. We love theme parks and I want to go on the rides.
However, this last two weeks, I have started getting comments about how I look, and man, vanity can kick health's ass in mere seconds. I am afraid my impatience to look good may derail the more important goal of getting fit.
So, would you order HOT with a side of healthy? Or order HEALTHY with a side of hot?
