Just sitting here enjoying Biggest Loser with DD. She came over to do her laundry and is spending the night.
Things have been going good at work lately. I kind of hate to say that...like I'll jinx it. But I'm not really superstitious so...things have been going good at work lately. I'm making my way through a big catch-up project. Getting work done gives me a good feeling of accomplishment and helps with my self-esteem. Yay, good feelings!
I went to the Y this morning and got a little workout in. I started re-reading the Biggest Loser motivational book on my Kindle. Today, I read the summaries on the people who are featured in the book and their weight-loss success stories. It was nice to see their Before and After pictures. I've been thinking a lot about that lately...what will my "after" look like? I'm at 55 lbs down...68 to go. So, I'm approaching the 1/2-way point. I'm very comfortable in my own skin now. I've been wondering if being "skinny" will be awkward. It's like there are some misgivings setting in. Like...do I really want to go there? Because I am going there. As I looked at their after pictures, it really helped me. Yes, I really want to go there. It looks good...it looks healthy...I want that. I should/will continue on.
Watching the Biggest Loser really helps me with that, too. As I look at them, I see them looking better and better, healthier and healthier. While you can see that being part-way there looks great...reaching goal looks AMAZING! So, yes, I want to continue on. I want to smash through the half-way point and move onward!
I've also been thinking about some upcoming challenges and motivators for myself...and DH. Maybe a Disney cruise when we both get to goal. I've been wanting a Kettle Bell and a Dance game for Wii. So I think I will give it some thought and plan something with those "prizes." Also, I would like to plan a trip to the Mall of America. I've been there once with DD. It would be fun to go there with DD and DH...and have DD from Wyoming come and meet up with us there, too. With my 1/2-way point coming up, my one-year Sparkversary in July, my overweight BMI coming up, I will give these things some thought and match up some goals and prizes to spur me on.
Hope you all are having a great week! Spark on!
