And then... something happens. Something that makes you realize why you are doing what you are doing in the first place. It might be something small and silly but it is a sign that you are on the right path. See, I am one of those sit/kneeler people at church. Mind you it is not THAT often I attend church but when I do and it's time to kneel, my knees start to hurt and then the pain moves higher to my lower back until I can't take it anymore and have to sit for a bit. Well, this morning Zach was singing at mass so I went to watch him. (He was really cute by the way... when the music started he would start to hum even before the words started. And at times he would forget the mic was in front of him and ask the music teacher a question and the entire church heard him. Anyways... back to my story. I just had to share the cuteness of my kiddo) So, when the dreaded time came to kneel (for what usually seems about 2 hours). And... It wasn't so bad. In fact! I had no pain at all! My knees felt great and no lower back pain. The entire mass I was pain free... and you know how long those Catholic masses can go. So, I guess it just made me realize the progress I am having might not always show on the scale. In only a short month my body is much healthier and in much better shape. And when you come down to it, that is what REALLY matters now isn't it?
