To help me beat this funk that I've been in I decided to play with my scale and take a picture of my "Dream Weight". My "Dream Weight" is to be under 160 pounds. Can I do it? HELL YEAH I CAN!
I just have to overcome the road blocks that are thrown in my way. Like this week being knocked on my butt with an upper respiratory
illness. So not looking forward to the scale after the round of steroids
I have to take.
But that's OK
I'm looking and going to find what I need to motivate myself to get it going.
I found some of that motivation yesterday shopping for clothes. Rule that I follow now is I must try everything on before I buy. Picking something off the rack and just buying then trying it on at home are in the past. We've all done where we buy something thinking it will be OK
, getting home and putting it on and it looking awful
or worse it does not fit! The positive thing that happened was I decided to try on a pair of skinny jeans that were a size 16. Now I'm a normal 18 or 20 depends on the pants. Well I'm in the dressing room and I figured I would be lucky to get them up and over my thighs. Guess what they went all the way up and the best part I was able to zip them and button them!
What an awesome feeling! So I'm going to go with that motivator for now until I need to find a new one. The feeling of putting something on and it fitting and looking good on you! I did see some sexy underwear also that are some motivators, but this is a family show so that discussion will be with the girls at dinner on Tuesday at Cabana's.
Well until next time!
