There is something so satisfying about having a goal that is no more than a superficial, selfish, 'damn I look good' goal. That's what this is. I want to weat THAT dress. Oh - and say - damn I look good.
I know that "getting healthy," "being a better me," "living a good life" yada yada yada are all the right goals. The noble goals. And I want all those. But I want to look good while doing all that! I don't think that is too wrong.
After all, not being selfish let me put on weight. I mean that by not saying 'no' to things that were not about me (not good for me, not what made me healthy, not what I wanted to do), I passively allowed myself to not take care of me. And 30 pounds later (wait! 27 pounds later
), I'm deciding to be selfish and take control of my life.
What do I get out of it? Well, that 39 years with my husband. A healthy life style. Not getting winded when I run to the garden. A better me. Just a better me in that dress!
