I Lost 100 Pounds!

Seed Bags

100 Pounds of Seed

Do you see those 2 bags of seed?  They each weigh 50lbs.  We were finishing up our last field of corn Friday night and Farmer needed 2 more bags of seed so I ran back to the farm and loaded them in my car.  As I was struggling to lift one of the bags and carry it over to the planter it hit me. Right there in those bags was the 100lbs of weight I had lost and I could barely carry half of it, let alone both bags at once!

It was a bit of a shock and also a revelation.  It has been a lot of work and commitment getting to this point and not every day has been a positive one.  But today we celebrate the positives!

** I have lost 100lbs!
** I can walk 3+ miles without stopping
**I can walk faster~ 3 minutes less per mile than when I started
** I climbed up the tractor steps this planting season with ease
** I have more energy

I have a long way to go on the journey but today I’m stopping and appreciating how far I’ve come.

What is your positive for the day?
