Pushing Myself

Since May 20, 2010 I have been changing my life for my health and my family's health. We have changed the way we eat. Changed the way we think about food. Learned to count calories. Started exercising. All in all worked out butts off.

I do know it is working for me. I have lost 35 lbs so far. You can see some differences in the photo above. I am darned proud of myself. I have set a goal to lose 100 lbs total. Which means 65 more lbs to go.

I decided when I lose 25 more lbs I am going to get my belly button pierced. Why, you may ask? I think it is so pretty and sexy. I don't mean that I am going to go around with belly shirts (ewwwwww)I just think for myself and my hubby it is beautiful.

I know I don't post as often as I should here I will attempt to change that.

It's Been Uphill

For the last 10 weeks or so I have radically changed the way I live my life. I am on the road to healthier living and weight loss.

While I have surprisingly enjoyed it and have adapted well there are still things I want, crave. Chips....mmmmmmmmmmmm. I can admit I was addicted to junk food for a long time, more than a decade actually.

I am proud to say that I have lost 27 lbs and dropped 3 pant sizes and 2 shirt sizes. I am amazed. That is what keeps me going. Well, that and the GUESS jeans I promised myself when I meet my goal which I figure will be around May 2011.

Working It Out

Sometimes I find it hard to follow through with my goals. Not because I can't do them but because fear of failure sets in. And then some time later in my life I hear the words in my head "I should have....". It scares me because I want my design business to take off. I don't mean I want to be worldwide, I just want to do stuff locally for a while and think big later.

I wish I had more confidence in myself and could guide myself on the right path.

With my new goals I am going to push myself harder than I ever have before. I've been offered a phenomenal chance to be taught by a professional tailor and I know I can gain so much from it. I've decided I will contact him this week and see when we can arrange a time for my first lesson.

That will take a lot right the but I will do it.
