Goals, goals and more goals...

I'm so excited from this weeks weigh in. I didn't realize it until I took a moment to sit down and fill in my weight loss book, but I'm only 15 lbs from making my 100 lbs weight loss and 35 lbs from my goal weight!!
I have been on this journey for a few decades, losing  30-40 pounds then gain it all back and then some. Lose another 50-60, then sabotage myself and gain some of the weight back. I usually fluctuated from 190 to 220, but I never let myself get to 260 again. I was good at keeping my weight in my comfort zone. I knew what my life was like at that weight, I knew what to expect from others when I was that weight. I just was comfortable.

It wasn't until I stepped out of my comfort zone I truly found myself and what my body can and will accomplish. Was I comfortable being the biggest girl in the exercise classes? NO, but I did them. Was I comfortable when I ran on the treadmill and it sounded like a heard of buffalo? NO, but I did it any way. No matter what comes your way don't let the stares and jaunts of others keep you from being the best you!

I always get a kick out of slipping on jeans that last month was to tight, wearing a t-shirt and looking good in it. Little things to most but for us that have been on a roller coaster ride of weight loss, this is such a great feeling. Keep that feeling in the front of your mind at all times. Know that the hours you put into your body at the gym , home gym, or outside,  will reward you for years to come. Your reward for all that hard work will be great. Please don't give up!!

Take your power back, don't let others make you think you cant be the person you was meant to be. If they find fault in you being your best then maybe you should let them know you will no longer tolerate that form of abuse. To dim another persons shine IS a form of abuse and should never be tolerated!!

So onto my next goal, 15 lbs to go by DEC. 31st 2014 :)
