This blog will be heavy on motivational pics, they are my favorite things
I am so proud of myself and how far I've come. I can still see my weight lost on my ticker, which I am happy to report tells me I am already almost halfway to my new goal! I have to remember that, because my home page now says "0 pounds lost (so far!)" and its a little a difficult after getting that number up to 55!
I reset my goal to a weight that will put my BMI right at "overweight"...I am currently obese.
There, I said it! I am obese. And I have been since just after graduating high school. But I am so much more than that! I am a sister, an aunt, a friend, a daughter, a law student, a college graduate, fun to be around, creative, funny, energetic, outgoing, nerdy, a knitter, empathetic, responsible, generous, caring, a good cook...the list goes on! I am SO MUCH MORE than my weight.
I CAN DO THIS. I can make healthy choices and be around for as long as possible. I will feel good, I will inspire others! I won't stop losing weight just because I'm uncomfortable when people notice. I won't stop because I don't care about myself...I love myself! And I am going to do everything I can to treat my body right, just like I should have been doing for the past 10 years! I have so much life left, and I plan on enjoying it.
So on March 1, 2014 I hope I will have made it to my "overweight" goal...but if I haven't I will keep trying, I will never give up! If I make it to my goal, I will reset and set my sights on a "healthy" weight. We all can do it, it's going to be hard and it isn't going to be fun (the whole time), but its not impossible by any means.
