"I have reached my goal" in my minds eye
Saturday, July 10, 2010
Visualizing that i have attained my goal is something i think about a lot. Today, i write a blog on how it would feel, what other goals I would have, and what would i do once i reach goal.. well, here it goes.
"I did it. I have finally reached my goal of 155 lbs.. took me a long time, but really what else was I going to do with my time? I am jumping up and down for joy, I feel amazing, and I thought I would never see this weight on the scale ever again. It is a feat beyond anything I have ever done for myself! I am almost half the person I was just a year and half ago. Wow! that sounds amazing to me.
I want to help others do the same. I want to encourage, and show them that it is possible to lose weight!! Not just a few pounds and then quit, but keep starting over and over if necessary, to keep re-grouping themselves and to move forward and don't get stuck in 'slip-ups'. I want to help others see that its not about going on a diet, but its about eating right, exercising, and taking care of ourselves because its the right thing to do.
To look in the mirror, its amazing to see a person who has lost 134 lbs. and looks younger and feels more energetic, is not taking any medication and is a strong person not only on the outside, but on the inside even more.
I have always loved who I am, but now my outside reflects my inside 110%. I am a confident person even more so. I will stay here on sparkpeople, I need to encourage other people to do the same for themselves and to take control of their life and have the best possible life that they could possibly have. Sparkpeople has been a blessing to me because I have been able to connect with very special people such as my dear friend Karen, and one day, I hope I will be able to meet her and others in person. (Karen, when we do, we gotta have our yellow polka dot bikini)
To think that I have arrived at my goal weight brings tears of happiness to me. I have achieved this amazing goal, and with doing this, I know I can do whatever I have put my mind to. I know you have heard this a gazillion times... If I can do it, you can do it...
Inside of me, the FitGirl inside of me, has finally showed her amazing self. I did it! I did it! I did it!"
