Default Do you ever get excited about being thin?

Sometimes, I get this rush of excitement that I'm going to be thin some day Like, I'll be looking at pictures of friends on facebook or something, and realize- hey someday i'm going to look like that too! Anyone ever fell that? It's so motivating!

Oh, all the time. Or sometimes I'll be hanging out with my size-eight friends and they like trade clothes and stuff and it blows my mind to know that one day in the not toooooo distant future, I'll be a part of that. (Although, I get excited about the thought of being thin, yet I can never actually concretely imagine it -- in my head, a huge part of my persona has to do with being comically oversized compared to my beautiful friends, so in my mind, even Skinny Kat is bear-like and funny.)

Also, I totes have my new facebook profile picture planned for when I'm done losing. Is that sad?

I totally do too! Every time I look in my closet! I've been smaller before and kept all my skinny clothes - and shoes! They are so beautiful, and on days when I'm needing motivation I just pull down the box and look through every thing. I haven't told anyone that in a long time - last person I told thought it was pretty pathetic, and then since she was smaller she borrowed some items - AND NEVER GAVE THEM BACK!! Including a realllllly nice skirt I got from Japan. Glad I'm not the only one who gets excited!

*points* THAT plaid skirt actually did up yesterday. Granted, it still sits way too high on my still-too-large waist for it to be appropriate yet, but THE POINT IS... I get SO EXCITED thinking about the fact that one day, I'm gonna make it fit again. ****, one day, it might even be too big on me.

Everyday I do. I think about going to Las Vegas this summer with my boyfriend and all my friends (who are all skinny btw) and being able to be one of them. I try to imagine what I would look like in a bikini and a dress for once. Hopefully by the summer I'll be one of the skinny ones. =)

I can't wait... I keep going over the things I'm going to do when I'm thin and fit. Like go hiking on a first date, or go to the beach, IN A BATHINGSUIT!

^^^ First dates are scary, especially when you don't like yourself.

I'm looking forward to being confident on a first date!

I feel like with each pound loss, come more confidence. like it's a math problem.


1 pound gone = one ounce of confidence added

That's true. I don't know though, I'm pretty confident right now even though im a big girl, i hope being thinner doesn't make me cocky.

Not so much before I lost weight, because it seemed so far away and hard to reach. Now, yep. A lot.
