This Is My Year!

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I've been claiming it since last year! This is my year! I turn 40 years old at the end of August and I am looking forward to it! I'm planning a big Burlesque-themed party and I plan to wear a corset!!! But how can I do that in the body I'm in now? Things have to change.

I've tried and failed a hundred times, but I'm back to try again. God is giving me another chance and I'm taking it! I know I have to become more motivated and more accountable to myself. I know its not just about talking, but about doing. Sitting around looking at other people's stories for motivation is not enough... I actually have to do the work!

I've lost nearly 40 pounds since I started SP in 2009. I hadn't realized that until I went to update my current weight. I'd started at 318 and am now at 280. I could have been at my goal weight by now if I had just continued to do what I needed to do. I'm not putting myself down, I'm just being honest. I have to be accountable for my actions (or inactions).

So here am I trying again and this time I will succeed!

    Welcome back and congratulations on your weight loss so far. Think of this way. Instead of gaining all the weight back since you have been away you maintained it. So now that you are ready to continue on your journey, you know that you will be able to maintain your weight when you reach your goal!!! I also love the idea of a burlesque themed party!! Have you tried pole dancing classes? AWESOME!! And yes bigger women can do it too. Most places have the poles bolted into the ceilings! Otherwise the weight limit would be like 200 pounds... sad day! I look forward to your future post!!

    You can do it! Don't negate your weightloss - that is fabulous!!! Just lift something even 20 pounds and walk around with it or 10 pounds and you will feel the difference! I am glad you are back! Please utilize your friends and community to help keep you going!!! Here is to a great 2013 and moving forward!!!
