9 pant sizes down!

Monday, July 07, 2014

Hard to believe but I'm consistently fitting into 12's! Last pair of 12's I bought was a pair of tan chinos at Lerners somewhere around 1982. No kidding. That's 22 years ago. Wow.

Found a cute consignment shop around the corner from work. Hoping they keep getting in more options in my size!

Starting to have a little fun with this!

Motivation for the Motivator

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I've been blessed to have friends who tell me that I am an inspiration to them. Lately, though, I am feeling like I can't seem to get off the dime and keep the scale moving. I know why... I have a bad case of the "if onlys". If only I could.... fill in the blank.... then - then I could really get crackin'. Well - what's stopping me? ME! I am in control of my own destiny - nobody else. I am the only person who is looking out for my needs. I'm in charge. So what's the problem? I think the single biggest obstacle in all of this is my ability to stop worrying about what MIGHT happen, and make SOMETHING happen. Anything. Not sure if this qualifies as analysis paralysis, lack of faith, lack of self-confidence, or just what - but I've got to get out there and get it done. I've been examining my 'passions'. Those things that truly get me excited. The cold hard truth is that I feel like I have absolutely nothing to look forward to. Nothing. So until I set my sights on a goal - I'm afraid I will continue to spin my wheels. I can't worry about setting a "good" goal - I just have to set SOME kind of goal. Now, I guess I'll have to figure out what that is going to be, and then get back in the game.

    Every time I start to get close to my goal, I panic and do exactly what you said. This time I'm determined not to do that. I'm just taking it a meal at a time, a workout at a time and a day at a time. And I refuse to give myself permission to mess up!

Good luck to you.

Here we go, here we go, satellite radio....

Love when I get back from the gym, and I'm flying high on the adreline rush.... makes me feel like I can do anything I can set my mind to. And I can. I continue to prove that every day... Many days are not easy, and there are some days I don't FEEL like getting it done - but I still do it because I know that consistant performance is the key to success.

I'm retraining my brain to try and my internal sound track. Hence the blog title... :)

Just hit 100 lbs.... Resetting goals, counters and timeline!

Sunday, October 07, 2012

Didn't think this day would ever come... but here I am, 100 lbs lighter. I have 50/60 lbs to go, but am genuinely pleased that I have made it this far. It has been 10 years since I weighed this much, and am pleased to see that I'm making progress. Biggest change is that I'm resetting my expectations of myself. Turning "I'm not sure I can" in to, "of course I can". Self doubt is a thing of the past - and so are food rewards. Sure - I'd love a big bag of fish and chips today - but instead, I'll go get my toes done after the gym. That's a more meaningful reward! Happy Sunday!

Crossing the threashold........99.4 lbs and counting....

Friday, October 05, 2012

So - I'm home early from work, and am looking forward to a nice long weekend. I've got .6 lbs to go until I hit 100 lbs lost... and I'm actually feeling a little overwhelmed. I'm trying to really stay focused, and know that once I hit that mark - I am going to reset the counter, the goals and my expectations. This is the STARTING point for me, not the finish line. Balancing a good sense of achievement and trying to turn that into motivation to keep pressing forward. Don't want to sit on my proverbial laurels and stop working as hard for my next set of goals. Going to get changed, hit the gym, and do everyhing in my power to ensure I reach that 100 lb mark by morning!!!
