My June plans are coming along fine, I will post them up tomorrow. I know what I want to do and where I want to go, its just a matter of planning and going the extra mile and dedication to get there. I am so glad that I am sticking to this. I am working it into my work schedule right now. I was out of work for awhile and I had a concern that work and workingout would conflict, however they aren't. I am going with the mindset, of putting myself first when it comes to my health, because if I am not healthy what good am I to myself or anyone else? I am sometimes amazed that I am still doing what I need to do to get this weight off. I remember trying many times but I just kept giving up, putting my weight at a bigger deficit. That was an expensive lesson to learn. Oh well the past is the past and right now I am looking at my future and living the present.

Okay today was my weigh in for the Memorial Day Challenge. I started it off at 244, I was supposed to lose 10 but I opted for 15 however I lost 14 lbs for the challenge, and 9 of those were from this month alone. I went in to the GNC this morning to do my weigh in and guess what the scale said 230.5 I am so excited!!!

Okay tomorrow is the day, The day of the weigh in. Tomorrow morning I will wake up at 0800 and head in to do my weigh in at 0830. I will then return home to do my post of my Memorial Day weigh in. I plan to stop all fluids tonight at 1900 hrs. LOL I act like I am on a mission and it truly is, a mission to have a good weigh in. I am going to eat dinner around 1730 and nothing else after 1900 hrs. I'm kind of excited, nervous, because I don't weigh in too often, because I hate to see the fluctuations and I seem to do better by waiting. So I will see tomorrow morning. Plus I will see the results of limiting my meat intake, increased workouts on some days, and starting work. I will start working on my June plan so that I will get everything in order for June. I do plan on making a goal for my bday and that will be better planned after the weigh in tomorrow!!!

I want it bad. I want it more than anything, more than a fat kid wants cake. LOL. I just want to cross the finish line and see, feel, smell and taste the victory. I want to live it out for life, never to cross the lines again of having to lose the weight again. I want to be the one who they say she used to be really big then she just shriveled up. That would be funny. I want to be that sexy Mom that is in shape, takes care of herself they think I am her sister not her mom type of deal. The hubby is jealous because I catch the attention causing whip lash type. LOL okay maybe I am getting beside myself but I do want this more than you know, and I am willing to work on it as I have to. I will not stop or give up til I finish and even then I know that I will have to work on a maintenance phase.

I used to think that it was selfish of me for thinking of me, and when I look back at that reasoning its because of the way I was brought up and the roles that have been placed on me. Its like if I don't put others before me or my needs then I am being selfish and not caring for others. I have started to work on this conception because I disagree with it. I believe that no one can take care of us, like we can. We know what we need and what we want. No one knows us better than ourselves with the exception of GOD. I think its up to us to make sure we are fueling our bodies with the right foods, drinking the right fluids, getting the proper rest and exercise to make sure we are feeling better about ourselves and doing the right things for ourselves. I look at how I feel now compared to last year when I was heavier and I was a mess. I think of how often I was doing for others, but then neglecting myself in the process, it was a shame because people will take advantage of you if you don't let them know that you are trying to do something for yourself. YOU owe it to YOURSELF to take care of YOU. I have been taking things slow and working on me. I am coming to new terms with me, and yes it will be all about me, there is room for others but we all need to be on the same page. We are doing it healthy style, no other style here on out!!!
