I am very close to my first big goal. I am 3.4lbs away from weighing in the 100’s again. Dizzymomma on Workin It Out wrote a concise and perfect post about this a week or so ago- as she calls it One-derland. (a play on words, how could I not like it?)
It’s challenging to be a woman and feel like a woman when you weigh as much, and sometimes more, than a lot of men. The questions you ask yourself, the self-hatred, the shame, the simple fact that you can’t pretend you’re just a little curvy and ba-boom.
I don’t normally lose more than 2 lbs per week – and it’s often less. I am setting a goal to reach THIS goal ( being back in the hundreds and joining Dizzymomma in One-derland) by May 1st. If I hit it before then? Well, that’s just a happy bonus. I’m not going to starve myself, over work myself, or go off the deep end but I sure as heck am going to push myself.
And when I reach this, my very first big goal? I’m giving myself an extra special non-food reward. I just don’t know what it should be!
I need suggestions! Please feel free to leave ideas in the comments.
