I'm glad you've been able to overcome a few pre-conceptions about your lifestyle, and managed not to be too analytical, critical, or hard on yourself either.
The mental and emotional apsects of how you live, are very important, as without those being in good condition, the physical changes will never happen. You have to have synergy and a symbiotic relationship between all three, to achieve results.
I think you can be proud of what you did, that you said hadn't been done for 10 years, as I can imagine something that simple, could have been a bain of your life, if you wanted to do it before now, but felt unable because something in your mind, or something you could see about yourself, was holding you back.
So I think you have a reason to be proud, for overcoming a personal hurdle like that, that got in your way for 10 years. It's little things like that, you can use to push you further, and build into a big positive, if you let them.
You should be excited about the future, because I know you're someone, that can and does give what's needed, to get what's wanted back out, and your admissions, prove that what you're doing must be working, and they are giving you a more positive, and better outlook on the future, which is a great part of the process.
