So...... wierd. I've never set a weight loss goal for myself and realistically followed it through. I am so darn proud of myself its ridiculous.
And I gotta be honest- though I've never really suffered from low self esteem - I feel awesome! Awesome-er than usual.
I'm not shying away from full body shot photos, I find that I am super confident, and I gotta be honest its not been so bad for my budoir life either. It feels...I feel pretty f*n good.
Now the big question stands to be posed: how much do I want to lose in total?
The BMI charts tell me that I should weigh something like 118 - which is never gonna happen- I would be a twig if I weighed that and lets be honest- I like being a touch curvy. So I can't go off the BMI who-ha.
What I can go off of is how I feel and I know that I'm not going to be completely satisfied with 35 lbs lost. So at least as my preliminary thoughts on the matter is that my next goal will be 15 lbs- which will bring my to an even 50 lbs lost. Again, there will be no time frame to lose that I will force myself into I'll just keep making it a part of my life to eat healthy and exercise - I mean its worked this far!
But I'm not going to put the cart before the horse- I still have 4 lbs to lose before I hit my first goal - so be thinking of me- I plan to hit it BEFORE I say, "I Do"....
In my most simple form I am an explosion of endearing quirks and delightfully glamorous tendencies. Some of my most wonderful talents and qualities include but of course are not limited to: cracking an egg with one hand, applying mascara without a mirror, freakishly perfect and neat printing skills, a completely unashamed love for incredibly girly and sometimes questionably un-adult things (if my choice of paper clips happens to be silver or pink- I'm always going to go for the pink) a never-ending devotion to all things stationary (planners, notepads, greeting cards, post-it notes)My love of both The Girls Next Door and John and Kate + Eight and desire to live both lifestyles simultaneously (well, with far fewer children than 8!) an admitted addiction to cosmetics,lotions, and potions, and of course the pretty fingers that type the thoughtful words that bring this blog to you today-XOXO!
