What will you do today to reach your dreams of Tomorrow?

Weight loss is one goal that I have not been able to achieve up to this point. I know I have the ability to achieve anything I want, but this has been an elusive goal for years. Now I need to focus on it - not brush it off as unimportant, or less important than any of my other goals.
During my journey so far, I have discovered so much more that I thought I would. I have had to face the fact that my weight is a security blanket for me. By loosing the weight, I need to trust I can ...
Weight loss is one goal that I have not been able to achieve up to this point. I know I have the ability to achieve anything I want, but this has been an elusive goal for years. Now I need to focus on it - not brush it off as unimportant, or less important than any of my other goals.
During my journey so far, I have discovered so much more that I thought I would. I have had to face the fact that my weight is a security blanket for me. By loosing the weight, I need to trust I can survive without my "blankie". Journalling has been key for me to do this.
Forget about the mountain right now. I can do what I need to do today. I can make it through today. I can loose those next two pounds, without a diet. I can make this lifestyle change. I know I can.

********************************
I have started a new journey at the same time. It was not a planned change, but I believe that through tracking my foods, and being very mindful of how my body is feeling, I had to make a change. As of April 24, 2009 I am gluten free. This is still recent for me, and I am struggling. I have found gluten free pastas, cereals, and other items to replace some of my favorites. The only replacement I haven't found yet has been my bread. I love fresh hot bread from the oven, not that I make it ever. I guess I will have to start baking my own if I want it now.

*********************************
Today I am finding my personal quote. I think I know what I will choose. I just need to find the right words. You can not change yesterday. You can only dream about tomorrow. The only day you have any control over is today. What will you do today to reach your dreams of tomorrow?

My Goals:
Regardless of what the scale says at the end, I want to look good. I want to look like my virtual model. Because of my height and overall build, 120lbs or less is not possible. In fact, I have been at the "ideal" weight before. I am not healthy at that weight either. I know when I am healthy, and it is not tied to a magic "number".

My Program:
I am going to do this, two pounds at a time. Whenever I come up to a block of some sort, I have been using this one encouragement, and it has been working wonders for me.

The only thing standing between me and those two pounds is this. Am I going to let it win, or am I going to fight through for those two pounds?

I have amazed myself by what I am able to do when I tell myself this.

Personal Information:
My name is Katrina. Keena is a name my little brother called me when he could not say my name when he was little. I live in Calgary, AB. I am sick of not being happy with how I look. I have all the right building blocks. It's time to use them.

I am worth it.

Other Information:
I have a collection of quotes that help me. You can find them on my blog titled Motivational Quotes. Feel free to browse.

I love photography. Most of the background pictures on my site are ones I have taken myself.
