Small Victory Today!

So today I experienced a small victory! I used to dread going to get my haircut because 1.) I hated the fact that I had to squeeze into those small salon chairs and 2.) I hated looking at my bloated face in the mirror for those 15-20 minutes. So today when I got to the salon and sat down in the chair I noticed a huge difference! I easy fit in the chair and actually had alot of room to spare! Also I noticed how much my face has changed, I actually liked what I was seeing for a change. I swear the small victories are sometimes the most rewarding. I felt really good today.

The next victory that I want extremely bad is being able to fly worry free, flying haunts me in every way! I hate going to airports even to pick people up because I know people stare and hope that I am not sitting next to them on their flight. I haven't been on a plane in a little over a year and half. When I was working I used to have to travel alot so I was often dealing with my worst nightmares. I would often pay of pocket to upgrade to business class or first class so that I could avoid some embarrassment. Also since I am currently looking for work nationwide I am freaked out by the fact that I might have to fly to different parts of the country for interviews, I am down 88 lbs since the last time I flew but it still makes me extremely nervous.

I know one thing though, when I do reach that victory its going to be an amazing day!!

Booths in restaurants that was my small victory, I remembered prefering booths when I was younger and when we went out with my dad he would always ask for a table and that irritated me. When I got to my biggest I couldn't fit in the booths anymore and I dreaded when that was all that was left and I had to squeeze into the booth with my stomach hanging on the table.

Now I love that I can sit in the booths again and prefer them just because I couldn't sit in them for so long.

You got to treasure the small victories.

That's wonderful! Each small victory spurs us on to the the next and then the next. Before you realize it, you'll have met your goal! Keep going Alan!
