I want to truly experience LIFE!

Thursday, August 12, 2010

A co-worker/friend brought me some Reese's Pieces today b/c i had mentioned the other day that i wanted some. I took 20 and i gave her the bag back. She told me to keep the bag and eat the rest of them. I told her no thank you because i have been doing really well with eating right and getting exercise daily. She told me that i was beautiful the way i am and that i shouldn't worry about my weight and what i look like. While i appreciate her comment, I explained to her that my weight loss journey isn't just about the way i look. I want to be healthy for myself, my husband and for when i have children. I want to truly experience life to the fullest. I want to be completely confident and not feel self-conscience. This got me to thinking about the things that i would like to experience once i have lost the weight. Here's my list:

-Learn to Skate
-Climb a Mountain
-Do the Flying Trapeze
-Go to a water park and not feel self-conscience
-Go to the beach and not feel self-conscience
-Ride amusement park rides and not have to worry about if i will fit
-White Water Rafting and not worry about falling out and not being able to get back in
-Maybe Skydive
-Go dancing and not worry about people watching
-Play basketball with my husband
-Play volleyball on the beach
-Do a sexy striptease for my husband (TMI?)
-Shop at non-plus size stores
-Ride a Jet Ski
-Have my husband be able to pick me up for more then a couple mins and not worry about hurting him.
-Ride a horse

This is a short list but i'm sure i will add more in the future.
