Now that's motivation!

Friday, January 11, 2008

Last night I stopped by my mother's house, while I was wearing my new gym clothes. I got the clothes from my sister for Christmas and they actually fit me, unlike my old gym clothes which are now baggy on me. My mother took one look at me and said it's time for me to quit losing weight. She said I now look skinny and if I lose any more I will start to look sickly. Today at work one of the doctors also told me I shouldn't lose any more weight, that I have lost enough. I still plan on losing ten more pounds, and I will still be at a healthy weight if I do. I am not getting carried away, I am 5 '4, so 125 is a good weight for me. I just think it's funny, because I never imagined people would be telling me I am getting too skinny! It's a good feeling, and a great motivation to stick to my exercise plan so I can maintain my weight loss!
