OK, I decided to start a blog so that I can track my successful weight-loss journey, which has now begun. I have started this journey more times than I can remember and have made a few successes along the way, only to back track and end up worse off than ever. Yes, I’m disgusted, disgruntled, and wholly ashamed of myself. Sure there are a slew of excuses, and I guess some valid reasons, as to why I weigh what I do, but truth be told it just doesn’t cut it anymore. I HAVE to get this weight off!! NOW!!
This morning I wrote a post on 3FC about what my reasons are for losing weight. This is what I said:
I want the imagine I have in my head to fit the reality.
I want to look sexy in Victoria Secret clothes
I want to be healthy and not be diabetic like my mother and others in my family are.
I want to be able to do things outside like hiking, biking, and swimming
I want to tuck a shirt in, wear something sleeveless, actually go out in public wearing shorts, put on a swimsuit, sexy lingerie, high heels, etc!
I want to be naked while not sucking my stomach in. As if that helps anyway.
I want family and friends to be wowed by my hotness.
Finally, I want to do this for the love of my life, Joe. Joe has accepted me, loved me, encouraged me, and believed in me. All he asked when we got together three years ago was that I get fit and healthy so we can live a long life together. I HAVE to make that happen for him!
- I’m working out at the gym five days a week for an hour of cardio and plan to up that to six days a week. I’m developing my own cookbook filled with healthy, low-calorie recipes to feed Joe and I.
- I’ve rejoined 3FC and am working on becoming a regular poster and reader of all the great advice and encouragement to be found on that site.
- Tomorrow night I plan to rejoin TOPS where weekly weigh-ins will provide the necessary accountability I separately need.
- I started this blog and vow to write in it regularly and to be honest with my feelings be they successes or setbacks.
