My New (well, first) Goal!

Thursday, May 17, 2012

So, it really takes me a lot to STAY motivated. I can't look at health issues as a reason to change nor can I look at how much weight I have to lose as a reason. Sometimes, I just purposely remain ignorant to my health, obviously. I LOVE the high after a workout, though, especially at night for whatever reason (just got back actually). It is mostly nutrition for me.

OK, anyway.. when I was looking at my clothes today preparing for work, I wanted to get out some clothes I haven't worn in a while. As I have mentioned, I have gained 30 lbs. since a year ago and about 20 lbs. since the end of summer (and I bought a pair of capris at the end of summer that were a little tight). I know that a lot of my clothes don't fit, unfortunately. I guess I didn't realize almost half of all my summer clothes don't fit now. SERIOUSLY! Some can't even be buttoned! It's embarrassing and disappointing. I was very upset with myself when I went into work, but I was MOTIVATED. Especially to wear those poor capris that I love, but I only wore a few times because it was toward the end of summer when I bought them.
When I was eating dinner with my fiance and son tonight, I mentioned all this to my fiance. He said, well.. you still have time to fit into them by summer. He was jk (he actually thought summer started May 22 haha).. but now I am taking it as a challenge! June 20th is the first day of summer for those that don't know.

SO, my goal is to fit into at least those capris, if not all my shorts (which would be GREATLY appreciated this summer!.. I work with kids and am up moving all summer long.. I appreciate shorts haha) by the first day of summer -- June 20th. I know it is hot before then, but that is ok. It is a good goal, I think. I am not planning to lose all that weight, but simply to fit in them.

Yay for goals! =)

EDIT: Re-reading this, I remembered that those capris WERE tight when I wore them last summer. Perhaps I will aim for another pair of shorts. =) I guess if I can fit in any that I can't fit in now I will be accomplished!

    Just wait until you get so far that you need to buy new stuff at the end of the summer, or for fall because everything is too loose! Expensive? Yep! But totally worth it. We have spent so much money at plus-sized stores over the years, that replenishing our wardrobes is something we need to allow ourselves to do. Wearing unflattering, too big clothing doesn't allow us and others to see our new body - which brings us joy, increased self-esteem and renewed passion to continue on our healthy journeys. So I say: as you change sizes, buy what you need! Don't go too crazy, save that shopping spree for your end goal emoticon . Old Navy is great for inexpensive staples for your wardrobe. Basic styles that last and will go from season to season as necessary.

    Keep up the awesome work!!
