So, I’m turning 30 in forty days. I’m not too upset about it really. It’s kind of sad to think that my twenties are going to be over, but they were fun. I had a good time. Time to move on. I’m okay with it.
But, I thought I would give myself a goal. I like goals. It’s good to have things to strive for… and fall short of. But maybe, just maybe, I might actually achieve this goal. Don’t go holdin’ it over my head or anything!
I decided that I’m going to try and lose 10 pounds by my 30th birthday. Fun, fun!
I’m just going to throw my weight out there, just so a have starting point in black and white, and the WHOLE BLOGOSHPERE knows about it! I stepped on the scale this morning and I am 148 pounds. Some of you just gasped in horror, and some of you just thought “that’s skinny!” To the “that’s skinny” group, you are my VERY best friends! I was actually thrilled because I feel like ever since I’ve had kids, 150 pounds has been stopping point. I just can’t seem to make it over that hurdle. So, if I could get to 138 by my birthday (on October 4th in case you want to mark you calendar) I would be super stoked!
I talked to Alisha, who’s a nutrition expert (not really… but she has been on every diet under the sun at one point or another) and we both thought it would be best if I kept eating how I’m eating (because it’s really not that bad) but just eat less. So, that’s my plan. I’m going to try and eat half of what I would normally consume at any sitting, and I’m going to walk everyday, which I’ve already been doing. Walking is WAY better than running! 🙂
I was thinking about this this morning when I was walking and I thought “Man, if I would get to 138, I would be satisfied.” But would I really? I don’t know. I feel like I’m always thinking about my weight and what I eat and how much exercise I get. Will there actually be a day when I’m okay with the way I look? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think I’m a hideous beast, so you don’t have to leave comments telling me how beautiful I am. I know I’m beautiful! J/K!!! Totally a J/K! But, isn’t everyone like this? Everyone has something about them that they want to change, right? I’m not the weird one, am I? Maybe I am. Hmmmmmm… what do you think? Are you completely comfortable in your own skin, and if not, do you think you ever could be?
