Weigh in Day and Thoughts on the Future...

For those that may not know... this is the happy dance!!

Today I stepped on the scale and am .8 pounds lighter than last week!! Now, you may wonder why the celebration? Get used to it! This little guy is going to be seen A LOT! See, I've been down the road of weight loss many times and would find mind self feeling down and depressed if I didn't lose a large amount of weight each week. This time however, I have made a promise to myself that I will celebrate every time that scale is lower and not berate myself over the small losses. A loss is still a loss and as long as I am headed in the right direction, I am happy!

All that junk about weighing in finally over, I got to thinking about what my future may look like.  And in all reality I have no idea.  I guess in the long run it will be very much the same as it is now.  I just think I will be enjoying it more.  Here are a few things I want to do once I get the weight down:

  • Go Skydiving
  • Hike to see Corona Arch
  • Go to an amusement park and finally enjoy myself
  • Get in front of the camera more
  • In relation to the above, do a pinup shoot
  • Ride a bike and not feel like my butt is going to swallow the seat
  • Pay closer attention to the clothes I buy and know I will look better in them
  • Go on a cruise and NOT feel like the biggest person there

There is so much more I want to do but, I won't bother you with more. I have realized that I hold myself back because of my weight. I love who I am but, I don't love what I am and so, I am trying hard to feel better about that. I am trying to change my mindset and change my body to match. It's a process but, I am making steps in the right direction everyday.

Oh! And normally, I will only be weighing in once a month. My next weight in date will be September 26th!

What is holding you back? Think about that and then, think about what you need to do to make changes so that it's no longer an obstacle!
