Goals and whatnot…

So, things have gotten a bit better since I last posted. I did not walk away, in truth, I have too much going on in my life that is 100x’s more important then people bitching about stupid crap. Now back to my real life, where I pretty much happy. I say pretty much because we all have bad days… right?

Things are going well on my diet/lifestyle change. I think I am still loosing weight and I know I am shrinking. How, you ask? Well, my workout pants that I have been using were a XXL but the other day I went and picked up another pair. But, accidently I picked up an XL instead of an XXL, they fit really well. As well as my XXL did when I picked them up over a month ago. I am very happy with that. How can I not be? I went to the movies last night and noticed that my hips didn’t hit the sides of the seat. I realized they hadn’t in the past few weeks but I didn’t think about it then. Last night, having gotten up several times for the bathroom and snacks, before the movie started, I did. Even after I treated myself to a scoop of Double Fudge Chocolate Ice Cream, hey we have to treat ourselves from time to time. Right? Or we go crazy!!!

But, I have been thinking of my end goals, when I hit my final weight goal – which is 150lbs, if my body will do it. What will I give myself. Well, after thinking about it I think I will do what I have been wanting to do for the last 5 – 8 years but haven’t because of my weight. A beautiful tattoo on my right back shoulder. I have the design in mind but it will be a bit more original then walking into the store and saying – hey, I want that. And it is possible I will cover up a really bad tat I have on my inner hip. With what? I haven’t a clue. Maybe a spartan sheild from 300 since it has a special place in my heart for my weight loss.

My other goal – to make a costume I have been wanting to do for the past few years but there was no way in hell I would ever be able to pull it off unless I was in shape. More on that when it gets time to start on it.

Today has been a good day so far… about 3 hours left in work and then I can go home and workout then work on some projects I have been pushing off for the past few weeks while I go to the gym.

  1. Excellent! Glad to hear you are sticking with it. I need to get back on the wagon with my eating again.

    I think the tattoo is a great idea. We need to reward ourselves for our goals. I quit smoking 5 years ago and swore I was going to get my teeth whitened. Then I read that isn’t good for your teeth so I didn’t.

    You’ve given me an idea to make a goal and reward myself with a tat once I’m done. I cannot put a weight on it since I don’t know if I’ll ever get to 150 lbs again in my lifetime but I’d like to be able to at least wear a size 16.

  2. Good job on the lifestyle changes! At one point in my adult life I was a size 28 and weighed nearly 400 lbs (medications can suck ass.) So if you ever wanna chat about it let me know, it took years, and I never quite made it back to my ideal weight of 150, but I am still trying to make healthier lifestyle changes and maybe I will make it there. Maybe not. I would be happy at a size 10 if I can get back there.

    The tattoo sounds lovely! I think that is a great reward for yourself=) As well as the costume!

    It was great to see you at the MG BBQ!
