I'm not ashamed to admit I want to lose weight for cosmetic reasons. That's my surface-level motivation. But as I continue on my weight-loss journey, I realize that there's much more to it than wanting to look good. I want to be successful. I want to see a tangible form of success everyday in the way that I look, the number on the scale, and the way that I feel. I want to know that I CAN do something that I put my mind to. I want to lose 20 pounds? I CAN. And I will. I'm half way there. And a month from now I'm going to see that beautiful little number on the scale and know that I was, I am, successful. I'm going to look great and feel great about my body and myself.
