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!

I left my comment on the WW Lose-A-Palooza facebook site.

Heather, you have accomplished so much! You are over 100 lbs lighter. You competed in a BB competition, running, etc. WOW! But more importantly your head is in a good place now. You have the love of a good man, your wedding is coming up soon, and then maybe "motherhood" if I understood correctly? How much better can life get?

I will be commenting on Wednesdays. Count me in! I need all the support I can get.

Thanks again Heather!

Girl you are an inspiration too! I know you can achieve your goals. You have before you will again and again. Each time you want something you make it happen.

I am here with you and supporting you anyway I can. You are in such an exciting time in your life enjoy each moment along the journey and don't 'wait' to enjoy yourself.

I will be watching BL too, so fun to watch together. Anyway, keep it up! You are great and can do it!

Hey Heather,

I am in for the Wednesday comment!! As usual I am inspired by your posts.

TBL was another tear jerker for me.

I too have excess weight to re-drop (15 lbs). Can't wait to see your update.

Have a great Day!!!

I watched TBL-but you know that because we were tweeting, LOL!!!

I made it to an evening spin class and also did 30 minutes on the elliptical yesterday! This morning I got up for weights and spin!

Deb, Natalie, Nichole & Dotsie...

Thank you girls so much for being a part of this little challenge! I think it's a good thing for us all!

I appreciate the sweet comments too. I am happy with me but I know I can be a better version of myself. That's all :) It's time.

Let's do this!
