99 pounds to goal! Sounds like a lot, doesn't it? It is. And it isn't! When I began this journey, I needed to lose 163 pounds. That's an average-sized person. It seemed almost insurmountable to me. It was daunting.
As of 9:00 a.m. this very morning, I am out of the triple digits and in the double digit stage of my journey. 99 pounds.
Still a large number but no longer insurmountable, no longer daunting.
The numbers no longer intimidate me.
You'll notice that I changed my weight-loss ticker to reflect the new numbers. This is something I needed to do. It's not that I don't want to be reminded of how much I did weigh so much as I changed the numbers to reflect how far I have come.
I'll change the ticker again when I've lost 75 pounds. Again when I reach
*one*derland... and so on.
This is something I need to do for myself -- it helps keep me motivated and inspired.
I feel different this morning. I'm not weighed down (pardon the pun!) by
knowing the I had a hundred pounds or more to lose. The number 99 is liberating... I feel unencumbered. I feel free.
Today begins Part Two of my journey -- the part that leads me to *one*derland! I'm just 35 pounds away! I can do this. I will do this.
I will succeed!
