TEN months waiting and never felt better...?

Ten months of waiting and I have never felt better...????? That does not seem to make any sense, does it? But, in fact, I have become at peace with things lately. I have also been putting my energy into other activities and I feel GREAT! My main distraction over the passed few months has been training for the marathon in June, and with that I have lost almost 20 pounds - hot damn! It dawned on my the other day at how well the training has been coming for me and I realized that there is one very simple explanation for it - I AM IN CONTROL - 100%. I can't say that about most other things in my life. I love it - I decide when, how long, how hard, and how often - it is all about ME ME ME ME!!!! No one telling me I have to wait, no one telling me I can't do it, no one forcing me, no one giving me bad news, etc... I really hope this new found energy can get me through the next few months!

Way to go- you're 10 months closer and wowsers on the training!! I need to grasp control of that area too, about as I've been trying to, my tendinitis in my ankle came back...
Enjoy those moments of peace and distractions.

Good on you! I actually ordered some workout DVD's (from an infommercial actually -- judgement is not the best at midnight), and I'm hoping to pass the wait by buffing up too!
20 pounds! That's fantastic!

Good for you! I am glad to hear you are doing OK, and congrats on the marathon training. Although I have never done a full one, I have done a few half marathons and it is such a wonderful feeling when you finish a good, long run! And even better once you cross the finish line. Hoping you cross the finish line soon enough too in this wait for a referral!

20 pounds = huge accomplishment and I'm sure with all that running, the endorphins are coarsing through your body. No wonder you feel great! That's awesome. Good luck in your marathon.

(I guess you have been mentally training for a marathon with this adoption so you might as well actually run one!)

Hope this good feeling keeps going...

That is awesome news Laura. I'm so glad you are feeling better this month. Me too. 10 was way better than 9.
