Life at goal weight

Sunday, January 27, 2013

First of all, I'm going to let go or "forgive" myself for the last year in which i've not lost the 10# I wanted. After working hard for two years to get to where I am today, I plateaued and bounced up and down within the same 5-10#. I just have not made it enough of a priority to drop and at times i get just plain angry at myself....so there, i've said it and letting it go. For now!

However I think the concept of what my life will be like when (notice I didn't say "if) I reach my goal weight. I don't think my life will change dramatically - i'm a happy and healthy person, and i'm within 10-15# of where I want to be, so my life will be similar. However, the little things that will change - all for the better:

1) Most important, shedding those pounds will make me healthier - from cholesterol levels, to exercise more easily

2) Second most important: I will be proud of myself, add that next wave of confidence that is so important!

3) I will have a new wardrobe - that is, those darn clothes that have been hanging around in big trash bags, waiting to fit my bod again - it's been 10 yrs!

4) I will get those lovely compliments from friends and colleagues - they add up

5) And last but not least, my husband and kids will be proud of me

    If you're like me it's pretty timeless quality outdoor wear - so hang on to it and get back into it! LOL Tshirts and jeans hardly every go out of style (or were they never in style and I don't know the difference?).

    What you expressed is why I've changed to focus on strength, flexibility, endurance and fun - if the last 10# go away while I'm working on those things, terrific, if not, life is still great.

    #3 - those clothes should be donated. You've worked hard and should get NEW clothes. Unless they're timeless. This is no time to try to bring back pleated pants and neon colours. emoticon
