New motivation

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I have new motivation to whittle my waist ,, I am a bridesmaid!! My friend is getting my married in October so I want to fit in the crazy, but cute dress that she wants us to wear!! I love how other factors can motivate you to keep going.

My motivation besides that comes from the goals sitting on my wall, and everyday I work.

Most people know I work at a steak house, but it can not only be a negative influence, it can also be a motivator. Some of my guests just astound me at what they order and what they eat. Like Sunday night my table of 2 ordered our 1700 calorie cheese fries, had two giant sides of ranch with them, ate 3 loaves of our 600 calorie bread, and went on to have porterhouses, and topped it off with dessert. To the estimating in your head and that is around 3,000 calories, and that is low balling it. As I bring out the 3rd loaf, I m like I can not let this be me ,,,, ever.

Ooooh on the positive side of things. I can now fit into single digit jeans again!!! My friends from work are bringing me new work jeans because mine are falling off, and one of them brought me a pair of 8s, and they fit. Granted they created a new muffin top , but that is only more motivation for me!!!

So whats your motivation that comes from outside of the box?

    Isn't it amazing how our perception changes when we mentally start calculating the nutrition of the portion sizes we see! YIKES! Man, if I ate that many calories @ a sitting I'd need a wheelbarrow to get me out!

    Have fun with the wedding! Isn't there a law somewhere that says that bridesmaids dresses are something we wouldn't normally wear! Good luck and have fun.

    Congrats on the shrinking jean size!
