What are you waiting for?
First things first! Have you visited the Lose-A-Palooza page today, tweeted or blogged about it or even "liked" a post about it on the Weight Watchers FB fan page? Any of the three will get money donated to help feed the hungry! It's super easy & a no brainer ;)
Next on the agenda is waiting. We do it all the darn time. We wait for things to happen, we wait for results, we wait for the weather to clear, we wait.... But some things won't happen if we wait. We have to take action. We have to continue trying even if results don't come at the pace WE want them to come. We have to keep our chins up & know that we are doing the best we can.
So what are you waiting for? I keep the "GAME ON" mentality most days & have stayed the course being back on Weight Watchers even though my results are not coming as fast as I'd like. My body is doing it's usual "drop, stay, gain, drop" phase & while I hate it, I know that I'm continuing to do all the right things. My body seems to have FINALLY regulated it's monthly cycle so that truly was the last piece to fall into place after all the contest prep madness.
What does that all mean? It's GAME ON. For real! I'm 6 weeks away from my bridal shower. Season 8 of The Biggest Loser starts TONIGHT! For me, that show means remembering how I felt at my biggest. I was well over 300 pounds at one point in my life. I still sit here over 100 pounds lighter. I cry with them remembering how shitty I felt, cry with them remember how amazing it felt to succeed even if it was a small success, etc. If they can get on national TV & show the world everything (and I do mean everything..weighing in in a sports bra over 300 pounds?!?) then I can do what I need to do to finally get back to my WW goal weight. It's ONLY 20 pounds. That may seem like a lot for some but it's a blip on my weight loss radar. That doesnt negate it by any means or make it a small goal. I've already seen that dropping this extra is tough & going to take dilligence & determination on my part. But I know I have the heart to make it.
And if I need to put this on my fridge to help me get there then I will! hehehe
What are you willing to do to reach your goals? What will it take? What are you afraid of & what keeps you from succeeding? All questions I will be thinking about while I walk this evening!
I intend to devote Wednesdays on the blog to not only recapping what happened on TBL but also to how my week went with progress. I already update workouts & will continue to do that. Who's with me? Join me in the Wednesday comments section & update your week too! It's through friends & support that we reach our goals! I know that I would never be where I am today without it!
BRING IT ON!!!!!
