New Month... New Challenge... New Motivation...

Monday, August 31, 2015

I can't count the number of times that I have started this journey and ended up giving up... not failing, I refuse to call it failing, cuz you only fail if you never try again. I'm the queen of "trying again"... for once I'd like to be the queen of succeeding... and that is just what I plan to do this time!

I have plenty of reasons to be motivated right now...
1. My first grandbaby on the way (granddaughter to be exact), and I wanna be able to get on the floor to play w/ her (and then be able to get back up again). She will be arriving in December.
2. My youngest stepson "finally" popped the question to his long-time girlfriend. They have decided to "elope" to Colorado (which is what my hubby & I did), but they also want us parents to be present for their special day. So even tho I don't have a "wedding" to look good for, there will still be pictures, and I would like to at least be the same size (or preferably smaller) as I was in our middle stepson's wedding pics! I have a year to accomplish this, and about 35 lbs, to achieve this, as they are getting married in Sept 2016.
3. My son is also getting married, and working for Disney, he of course wants a fairytale wedding! So my ultimate motivation is to reach my goal weight by his wedding, which means shedding almost 90 lbs. by March 2017.

So I've aligned myself w/ some new "motivation" buddies here on SP... and joined a new challenge both here on SP & one at work (those always seem to keep me in check)... plus I found myself a workout buddy at work (once I've healed up from my current tendonitis in my hip). I also plan to blog on here more often to keep myself accountable to myself and all of my SP friends.

Until next time...
