Getting My @$$ in Gear!

Sunday, March 06, 2011

I have finally, really, truly found my motivation. It took a lot to get myself to this point, but here I stand. As I posted in my status update, I am unstoppable! As well, I am DONE caring what everyone else thinks. I am DONE letting others make me feel bad about myself for my weight and my food choices when I decide to indulge in the occasional "bad food." I am DONE listening to people tell me I don't need to or shouldn't lose weight, that I look fine the way I am, but then turn around and say something mean about another "fat" person who is actually smaller than me. Then, when I question the person about it being told, "Oh, but you're not *that* big! You're not fat! You don't need to lose weight!" I am also DONE letting people tell me that I can't do this. That I will fail just like every other time I've tried losing weight.

I am doing this for ME for a few different reasons. I am NOT doing this for ANYONE ELSE! DON'T try to tell me I shouldn't, or don't need to, or that I will fail. You may not like how I will respond to you. I don't see how this is so hard to get through some people's heads, honestly.
It's MY life, I'm doing what will make ME happy.

I gained weight since the last time I reset my weight loss counter on this page. I decided to leave it how it is now, and then when I lose more than what it is set to, I will start using it again. As of mid January, I was at 275. The first week of February I was at 266. One week later, 264. The week after that, 262. I have gained one lb since then, but I'm not too worried over that one lb. I have already been feeling so much better about myself and more energized and anticipation of seeing a smaller number each time I step on the scale has me very excited.
