Down the Rabbit Hole!
Sunday, October 24, 2010
That's right, I woke up in Onederland today! I really feel like the world has turned upside down. This morning, I got up and decided to jump on the scale just to check. When the dotted lines stopped blinking and 199 appeared my eyes welled up in tears.
I really don't think I believed I would make it. When I hit 200 over a week ago, I was in awe but did not think I would get lower. As far as I have come, I guess I just didn't believe in myself enough. Looking back, I can see how much I have sabatoged myself. Getting so close and then eating junk or not exercising for days. These are things that not only inhibited my weight loss but made me feel miserable. I guess it was because I did not think I was worth it. After yesterday, I am falling in love with myself and my body. It didn't let me down even though my mind does at times. I did what I did not believe was possible yesterday and then I woke up in a whole different weight bracket. The One Hundreds! Can you believe it?!
So what is my plan now? After thinking about yesterday I decided to take my cues from my race experience. When I got to the end and could see the finish line all I could think about was getting there and beating the clock. It was the first time during the race that I thought about the clock but I knew I could get there in under 45 minutes if I hurried. So I sprinted. When I had a chance to really think about what I did, it was eye opening. I was able to push myself harder than I believed possible when the end was near. I want to apply that to my goals right now.
I am in the end stages of a lot of things right now. It is the last half of the Biggest Loser 15 Challenge, the last half of the semester, and the end of the year. I want to push myself and finish strong. So I am going to sprint to the end. Work hard and keep my focus on my goals. I know I can do it and I want to prove to my mind that I can do it. I have done so much in the past year that I didn't think was possible. It is time to love myself and treat myself as though I am important. To do so, I have to work hard to be who I want to be, a slimmer, healthy, successful woman.
Who wants to sprint with me? Together we can make the last part of this year the most successful ever!
