Ultiamte Goals

Thursday, July 18, 2013

So these are the goals that feel like pipe dreams. The dreams that, while technically possible, seem a million miles away. These are also the secret dreams that I don't like to tell people and that I am sometimes embarrassed for wanting.

1. Weigh less than my boyfriend.

He is naturally thin and struggles to gain weight. Currently, there's about a 20 lbs difference between us and it is NOT in the direction I'd like. He always says he loves me and my body and that I don't need to change a thing, but that he will support all of my efforts. It's wonderful to hear but does nothing to my waistline or my opinion of it.

2. Run a marathon.

I am running my 1st 5k this weekend and I am terrified. I know I can't run the full 3.1 miles, and that I likely can't even run a full mile yet. But I am so far from where I was 8 weeks ago. The idea of running a marathon seems like one of those lofty, impossible goals that I will never quite reach. However, my plan right now is to build up my running one mile at a time.

3. Share clothing with my sister.

Again, a loft goal that I would be flabbergasted if I ever achieved it. My sister is 6 years younger, 55 lbs lighter, and 4 sizes smaller than me. We can, technically, share very loose and very stretchy things now, but to find a way into her wardrobe would be the ultimate success for me.

4. Be able to buy normal sized bras

I am a 34F. Victoria's Secret does not carry my size. They don't even come close. Large department stores seem to think that people with my chest are middle aged women looking for a minimizing bra in either white, black, or nude. Specialty stores seem to think that I either need exactly 1 bra or I have enough money to drop $90+ per bra. To fit into a more standard size would mean less $ leaving my wallet, more varied options, a better fit to my clothes, and, most importantly, an end to my back pain which has sometimes left me unable to get out of bed.


These are just a few of my goals and as I think up more I'll probably make an updated post.

    These goals are obtainable and you can achieve them.

My first 5k in about 5 years is in August and I know I will be lucky if I can even jog a part of it, taking the step and even registering for it is always a good step!

I also know how you feel about weighing more than your other half. I've always weighed more than the guys I've dated and it bother me to no end, even though they said it never bothered them, it bothered the crap out of me though!

    Go girl! Congrats on that upcoming 5K. I signed up for a 5k walk (I have never completed one since my knee surgery.) You will get to that marathon!!! Just keep taking small steps towards that goal! You can do it!!!

PS I hear you on the boyfriend - my last boyfriend weighed less than me too! He would sit and eat ice cream before bed and I would watch him eat it and gain the weight he never did! Go figure!
