Pushing Past Halfway
Monday, September 19, 2011
This week will bring me through 8 weeks of the 16 week INSPIRE challenge. I decided to take this challenge seriously- not to just sign up and see what happens. I am also on the BLC Blue Team and am committed to a one pound per week loss. I knew it would be hard for me...but my teammates and I said we'd do the work and make it happen... So far, so good! My goal is simple- to be out of the 160's by the end. I set the bar low...but I have not been able to get to this point in almost 3 years, so for me, it is a challenge. I am halfway there...in time and results.
This is the week I need to push and work hard if I want to be in a place where I feel good about the prospects of making, and even surpassing this goal!
The holidays will feel awesome!
I can wear cuter pants!
I can smile big in the family photo and not feel so self conscious!
I will be confident in knowing I did what I said I would do!
I will be wearing cute books that fit my calves! (I found lots of sites that sell ones with larger than 14" calves!!)
I will not have to return any clothing I get because it is too small or it is a style that doesn't look good on my larger bod.
I have struggled and made so many mistakes on my journey, and it is taking me so long. But, I have not quit, and it looks like if I keep working hard, I can get myself even closer to my final goal of 125. This week will be important to me...and I knew that by putting it out here for all to see, I would have to live up to my expectations!
I'll see you Saturday and tell you how I did. Fingers are crossed, hopes and motivations are HIGH! I am ready for my moment to shine...for taking and making my winning shot! I want to get two pounds off...8 sticks of butter melted from this bod. I have the plan, I know what to do...the clock is ticking...here I go!!!
