30lbs pretty much amounts to a toddler, right? Gotta lose me one of those...
I'm pretty hyped about this blog, especially for the accountability aspect. But as I think about the end of 2011, when I hope to have lost that poor kid, I'm emotionally overwhelmed at the change that means. Mostly, at the idea that I will have done it. Like whoa, right? I will have lost 30lbs? Who is that person!? How differently will I look at myself once I've done that? How will I look at myself if I only lose 20lbs?
So right now my weight is 187; while in my 20s, it has been as high as ~210, and as low as ~175. I weighed in this morning at a specific point in my routine, which I will do again... sometimes. Weight isn't the point, really. It's a mile marker along a road, but the journey is more than just numbers. So don't bug me to get on that scale again, ugh!
I have a plan, and I have hurdles to overcome. One of the biggest right now is my eagerness to do it all right now, and the ovewhelming GAH! of it all. One step at a time. Less than a pound a week means I don't have to start out at a sprint, right? Please send a memo to my brain.
What thing have you done in your life that ended up being a big change for you? Did you know it at the time? Did you see yourself and your life differently after that? How so?
