Yesterday I shared about hitting 240 pounds, the lightest I've ever been as an adult. This morning I weighed 239.5 pounds, which I haven't weighed since well before I graduated high school. I'd guess 10th grade. I can only guess on that. As of this morning my Ten Day Average is 243.8 pounds, so I'll "officially" hit the "Half The Man" status very soon.
But today I want to talk about something else! I don't recognize myself any more! I vaguely recognize the face in the mirror as mine, but that's about it. I look at my hands. They don't look like mine. I've always said I couldn't learn to play the guitar because my fingers were too clumsy and fat. Well, they're not fat anymore! My hands look normal. I have no excuse for not learning to play the guitar now. :)
I don't recognize my arms. My feet. My legs. When I look down while walking I see these legs moving forward and back where before I only saw my belly and the tips of my shoes.
I don't recognize my shadow. It's not the one I'm used to.
It's no wonder I don't recognize myself anymore. I haven't seen this body in over 30 years. Excuse me while I go reacquaint myself!
