Saying BLARGHARGH, Baby Let Go!

Hey, that's not how that song goes!
Oh oh ho, yes it is.
So. Today I weighed 207.8. I am going to be 199 pounds by my birthday, in 2 months. That would be the best birthday present I can give myself! And maybe my previously blogged Mad Men dress will fit by then!
I've been reading The Spark a lot lately. If you haven't read it or bought it, I HIGHLY recommend it. I feel like I've finally found that piece that was missing in my attempt to live a healthy lifestyle -- the emotional one.
Now, as a person who is emotionally constipated, this is not an easy area of my life to tackle. But it really is important. Most people are overweight because they've put other parts of their life before their health. Totally reasonable. But when you start looking at WHY, that's the deep ish.
Visualizing the best life I can live was a surprisingly excellent exercise. It felt great to imagine this super awesome life I could live. And it helps put the WHY behind all the hard work that goes into healthiness. We all want to get sexy, but WHY do we want to get sexy? What will that help us achieve in life? I thought I would hate getting so emotional, but I really like it. I've started keeping a journal, and, for whatever reason, I really like writing in it.
I feel like this post is a little rushed, and doesn't truly capture how excellent my Spark experience has been lately, but just trust. I guess I can always write more blogs posts later.
I'm gonna go try on my (cross your fingers!) birthday dress!
Happy Sparking :)
