I started working out and eating healthy August 1 and decided to set a mini goal to help me stay motivated. I have 6 more lbs to go before Oct. 11, and I definitely feel like it is within my grasp. I can honestly say that I never have met any weight loss goal that I set so this will be a major accomplishment for me. I normally set my goals so high that I just give up. By setting a smaller goal it's just been baby steps for me. So....6 more lbs and I will be at 25 lbs lost. I'm feeling so good because every time I weigh less it's the lightest I've been since I can remember.
Totally unrelated, but this is on my mind. My whole life I"ve been the fat sister. Don't get me wrong, both of my sisters are overweight, but they have always weighed less that me. In college I dropped 30 lbs while competing for my track team and I was all the sudden the smallest. I felt so good to finally say I'm smaller than them, but a bad break up, an overnight work schedule, and pure laziness made me balloon back up. I've been updating my sisters on my progress and I'm within 10 lbs of each of them. I am trying to get them to understand that I"m not trying to lose weight to be smaller than them (which was the motivation in the past), but that I want to be healthy and feel better about myself.
New hair cut tomorrow, and I'm getting "new to me jeans" next weekend. A smaller size from my sisters storage. Life is good!
