Good Morning!

Thursday, October 30, 2008


I was thinking that maybe I'd start each blog entry with an inspirational picture. Something that makes me think of all the things I will be able to do or want to do when I lose weight. For example certain clothes I want to wear or certain activities I want to do. Places I want to go where before I was too embarrassed.

Today I picked a a woman who is a bit heavy but looks as if she feels good about herself and still wants to better herself. I mostly picked her because of her shorts. I haven't worn a pair of shorts in years because I'm ashamed of my legs. I hope by next summer to feel better about myself to wear shorts again.

Today I am feeling better, I ate well in moderation yesterday. The pizza was delicious and I didn't go anywhere over my calorie content. This week has been pretty good so far and I want to keep up the motivation. Keep my head on straight. Doubt is already starting to creep in but I think the way I am exercising is helping. I do it first thing when I wake up. That way the thought of exercising isn't hovering over me all day. I don't like exercising... I am not sure I will ever like it but when I am done with it I feel wonderful. I feel like I have accomplished something and having that feeling all day just feels good.

    I love everything about your blog entry today! I love the picture you picked and WHY you picked it - I haven't had a pair of shorts on in public in 17 years - not since I was 12!! I love that she's a bit on the heavier side, but still looks healthy and maybe working towards her own goals! :) It sounds like you had a great day yesterday...don't be discouraged - this is an exciting journey and you're going to feel awesome when you reach your goals - just like you do when you get done with your exercise! emoticon
