614

There are 614 days until I reach a landmark birthday. 614. I found that out tonight. That number, 614, has followed me for several years now... It was on my license plate for years and it pops up in my life every now and again. So, I'm taking this as a sign. I don't really believe in signs, especially numbers like this, but why not? I need a definitive start date and a finish line and now I have both. Step one of goal setting has been completed - establish a timeline.

Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson
from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

My Goals:
I want to live my life and stop using my weight as an excuse not to.

My Program:
I'm eating clean and being realistic. This is my life! And I'm going to enjoy it!

For most of my life, enjoying myself meant eating what I wanted and as much as I wanted and watching as much TV and movies as I could find. Now, enjoying myself is so much more! It's still eating what I want and as much as I want, but what I want now and how much I want now has changed. I don't want to eat a whole pizza anymore. I don't want to eat 2 boxes of mac 'N cheese anymore. I want to eat food that will make me feel good! (And it tastes better too!!)

I learned last year that nutrition is 85% - 90% of the battle in getting healthy. Can you believe that?? 85-90%?!? I always thought that if I killed myself exercising, I could eat whatever I wanted. That may have been true when I was in high school, but seriously, there are things I want to do in this body that I can't for now because my body doesn't have the right fuel to burn to do it! And that's getting fixed immediately!

Personal Information:
For a long time I've used my weight as a shield against the world. I exiled myself from life. But I've made peace with the decisions I've made in life so far, whether they were right or wrong, and now I'm deciding to live differently. I'm comfortable enough in who I am to be able to tell anyone, even people I love, that comments they make hurt me, and because of that, I'm more open with people about everything. If anyone is looking for someone to talk to who won't BS you about the topic, I'm here.

Hi there,

Eating well is half the battle, though exercise does help tremendously. Start out slow with the exercise then add to it. (On the WI Team August Chat, I think it was, I put a lot of helpful information regarding our travels to get to our goals, and hints, I hope are helpful.)

I hope you have a great weekend planned and that this day brings you a bigger smile than you'd worn prior. emoticon

aww you're welcome, why wouldn't anyone know you exist, of course you do, and in a very special way you reach out and touch others, especially when you don't know it, you affect them the most. Never forget that! That's when you mean the most to people, well, that sounds horrible doesn't it, I didn't mean it like that, but for instance, the expression of sympathy for my Father's death, that really brought tears to my eyes, and meant so much, thank you, I really appreciated it. It's been over a year, but still, it meant a lot, and I really really do appreciate it.

See you do mean a lot to people, always keep up that wonderful outlook and never forget how important you are, use that to continue to move forward and reach that peak of good health for yourself...not for anyone but YOU because you are important, too! emoticon
