So, I am reading about everyone's challenges for themselves this month and decided to do the same. Last month, I only lost 5 of the 10 lbs that I had challenged myself to. Boo. Anyway, this month I need to be serious and lose 10 lbs and just do it. I still have the goal in mind of 25 more lbs by June 14. My son may be gone by then, but I will be on vacation with my daughter IL and want to really enjoy it. By that, I mean, not be obsessed about my weight the entire time. I probably will anyway, but at least I will try. I want to wear a bathing suit to the beach and not look like a whale. I want to wear shorts and tank tops and not have my legs rub together when I walk. These are not bad goals, but I might me making these negative goals as I am thinking about this. Maybe part of the healing that goes along with this weight loss is changing the tapes replaying negativity into a more positive? So, how can I rephrase these goals? I want to walk on the beach and feel comfortable in my skin! I want to walk on the beach and feel satisfied with myself! I guess I can do this.
