This last week I took a little trip and had to fly on an airplane for the first time since I started Ideal Protein on 11/27/12. I had a huge non scale victory!
Why is this significant?
Well, before I started IP I had three things happen that propelled me into deciding I was going to lose weight once and for all.
- I had some blood work that came back borderline for diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, and other factors from being over weight.
- My back was hurting me so bad that I went to the chiro and they x-rayed my back. My lower spine was pulled in so far towards my belly button from being overweight that they thought I had either been pregnant or in a car accident.
- Lastly, I took a business trip on an airplane and I couldn't buckle my seat belt. I was embarrassed and shocked. So much so that I didn't tell the flight attendant and tried to hide the fact that I couldn't buckle my seat belt. Apparently I'd rather die from not having me seat belt buckled than face the embarrassment of asking for an extender.
Non Scale Victory
So when I flew this last week on the an airplane for the first time since that fateful business trip, I was able to buckle my seat belt without any issue AND have a lot of seat belt left over!
I was so happy I could cry! I seem to have these moments lately where I see the small changes that are really life changing and huge and just can't believe how far I've come since last year!
It's been 41 weeks since I started this journey and I feel incredible and really excited to enter the next phase of my weight loss.
