Today's a New Beginning

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

What I'm learning is that when I get bored or discouraged with this "lifestyle transition" (a.k.a. diet), I just need to begin again. I try to focus on my successes so far: down 12 lbs., making better food choices, starting to move more, starting to like my body better. I have a tendency to slide into a big black hole when I let my thoughts get the better of me, so unlike in the past, now I am taking the reigns and saying, "Enough is enough!"

I want to be the new and improved me! It will still be me. I will still recognize myself. I will just get more fun and enjoyment out of life...who doesn't want that! I will feel more self-confident and secure in front of others. I will not feel ashamed to eat something fattening in public. I will be able to cross my legs better when I sit down. I won't have back fat! My face won't look as round. I will have slimmer legs. I won't mind going to the Bahamas because I won't be afraid to strut my stuff in a bathing suit! FINALLY!

I have 70 lbs. to go. And sometimes I find myself thinking, do I really have to go all the way to my goal weight. I am already down 12 lbs. and feeling pretty good. My answer to that is a full length mirror and my birthday suit! Yikes! 70 lbs. off--here I come!

Whose gonna join me?
