Hurdles I am looking forward to

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Breaking out of the 180's and reaching the 170's
emoticon
Breaking the 40" mark in my waistline into the 30 somethings
emoticon
Having to go to the next size smaller because my pants fall off
emoticon
Tossing out my 18's and XL because there is no way to wear them anymore
emoticon
Finding that large is too big
emoticon
Fitting into the mediums I bought because I like them
emoticon
Finding a tankini I like
emoticon
Being able to ride a bike on the street again
emoticon
Being able to go bowling without my back/shoulder/neck hurting
emoticon
Reaching each goal and savoring the flavor of successful victory
emoticon

Hurdles I have overtaken:
26 lbs gone;
smaller bra size (Yes!);
increased flexibility and strength;
Fitting into some mediums and large;
Being able to dance and lift my feet instead of dragging them and not getting tired;
Riding the recumbent bike for 30 minutes at a time and passing the 5 mile mark;
gardening safely avoiding bees and keeping my back safe;
enjoying being outside in the sunshine, and weather by using my allergy medications as needed;
people noticing the weight loss;
trading ice cream for frozen yogurt;
drinking at least 8 cups of water daily;
eating my fruits and veggies;
feeling better about my fitness and health.

    YOU DIDN'T SAY HOW SHORT YOU WERE, BUT I AM ONLY 4'9" AND MY GOALS WERE SO SIMILAR TO YOURS.. LOVED IT WHEN A LARGE WAS TO BIG .. LOVED IT WHEN A SMALL WAS TOO BIG. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT MY FAVORITE PAIR OF JEANS WERE LITERALLY FALLING OFF MY BUTT.. LIKED IT AND HATED IT. I AM WORKING ON MAINTAINING RIGHT NOW. STILL DON'T KNOW HOW TO EAT TO MAINTAIN YET. LOST ANOTHER POUND WHICH PUTS ME AT 99.4 WHICH IS BELOW MY GOAL WEIGHT. KEEP PUSHING MY FRIEND AND IT WILL COME emoticon AND I THOUGHT LOSING WEIGHT MENT I WOULD LIKE TO GET INTO A SWIMSUIT AGAIN BUT I HAVE EXTRA SKIN WHICH IS MY NEWEST PROBLEM
