31 reasons why I'm doing this...

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

I plan to blog every day through October. Even if it's just a really short one. I feel like having a task or goal connected to logging into Spark really helps keep me on track.

So these are the 31 blog topics I'm going to use. Why I want/need to lose weight:

1. To not feel like the fat friend anymore

2. To not feel like I am too fat for anyone to love

3. To wear nice clothes and shoes and have a closet clear out

4. To feel and know that I have self-control and I am in control

5. To not feel anxious about seeing someone I haven’t seen for a long time and wondering what my weight was the last time they saw me

6. To finally wear a bikini or swimming costume in public and feel good about it

7. To make my ex-boyfriend jealous

8. To walk into a room and feel people are looking at me because I'm pretty, not because I'm fat

9. To experience that 'gasp' moment

10. To have sex comfortably and confidently

11. Because it makes me have control in other areas of my life

12. To be able to teach my children how to live healthy lives, so they never have to go through this struggle

13. So my boyfriend/husband feels proud to have me on his arm, and I feel proud to be on his arm

14. To be able to run a half-marathon and not feel like people are looking at me on the start line thinking 'Run, fat girl, run'

15. To not feel like people are thinking 'she works out this much but is still fat'

16. To practice what I preach: I post healthy meals on Instagram yet I still look like this?

17. To prove low carb actually works

18. Because I can't imagine living the rest of my life always concerned about how fat I am

19. To experience having a flat stomach before I have kids

20. To not feel bloated and uncomfortable anymore

21. To improve my self-esteem and shyness

22. To remind myself that I can do anything when I set my mind to it

23. To feel on par with LL and LB when we go out/to the spa/on holiday

24. To be able to run a marathon one day in my life

25. To be able to share clothes with friends for the first time in my life

26. To enjoy the shopping experience and fashion in general

27. To be able to actually say to people 'I've lost 42 pounds/3 stone!'

28. To go on a hiking and biking holiday with my future family

29. To wear jeans instead of leggings all the time

30. To not feel anxious about every social gathering, Christmas, Easter etc. in fear that I can't and won't control my eating

31. To be happy in my own skin

    II have to comment on number 14, I am a bigger girl and I have done 14 half marathons in the past 4 years. And I totally use to get worried about people being like why are you here? And maybe they do that but I stopped caring because I trained and at some point I will pass them up. Don't wait until you are then to do a half marathon. Just get out there start training and sign up, crossing the finish line is one of my favorite things. It will push you and motivate you. If you walk into the room feeling like the fat girl then that is who you will be. You from now on should walk into that room like you own it. Confidence is everything and I am a bigger girl but I own that room when I walk in. You got this and I know you can do it!
