Turning 47 - feels like I am staring straight down the barrel at 50.
Where do I want to be in 3 years? I do believe if I am to be where I want to be in 3 years, I surely need to start NOW.
Three short years. Can I accomplish my goal weight and maintain it? Yes, I can. I have made so much progress already here and I haven't even been here at Spark for 4 months yet.
Hmmm, 4 months. I only have NINE 4 month segments before I turn 50. Guess I better start looking at each month, and plan on progress at the end of each month. I now have 8 months to reach my goal weight that I set for April 2013.
I am feeling pretty good about myself, my clothes are fitting looser, I even fit into the next size smaller in most clothes. Not bad for 4 months, but I better get a move on if I want to attain that goal!
And the scale, forgetaboudit. The thing is up, down. I get on it sometimes then look to see who's sitting on my back making it register a higher weight that I expected! Whatever. I lost some in inches, my clothes are fitting better, and my self-esteem is through the roof!
April is not so far away, and that means the new me is on the way too. Feeling terrific about it.
I thank all my SparkFriends for your support and kind words of encouragement. You have really made a big difference in my life, not just as far as food intake, exercise and weight-ins are concerned, but also you have motivated me in my personal and spiritual life as well. I am grateful for all of you!
And, now, since it's my birthday, I'm going to get ready for a fabulous lunch at a fancy restaurant with a friend!
Then I will be spending time with my daughter.
And my sister is cooking me a seafood dinner at her house.
Yup, today is going to be a great day!
