Top 10 Reasons I'm Losing Weight, in no particular order

Sunday, August 9, 2009

OKAY - IDK WHAT IS WRONG W/THIS POST. I'VE TRIED EDITING IT A HUNDRED TIMES, BUT THE TEXT JUST KEEPS CHANGING SIZES TOWARDS THE BOTTOM. IS IT JUST ME BEING DUMB OR IS IT SOME BLOGGER BUG??? EITHER WAY, SORRY!
-----------------------------------------------------------------

(though there are truly about 10,000)

|1| Health.
I want to have a healthy, fit body, and a healthy lifestyle to go along with it. I'm only 19. I need to get this under control NOW.
|2| Self confidence.
Feeling good about myself is something I haven't done probably since I was in elementary school. It's sad really. I just to want to believe in myself, and to feel comfortable and confident where I am and whoever I am with. I'm ready to feel goooood in my own skin.
|3| Cute clothes.
Pretty self-explanatory. I want so badly to be able to shop at skinny stores and wear clothes I actually LIKE, rather than having to go with whatever fits.
|4| I want my boyfriend to see me and think, "WOW."
Though he says he already does :) I'm so blessed to have such an amazing man in my life; he's so supportive and I feel better about myself just being around him. But I'd really, REALLY like to be that "arm candy" that he can't help but stare at.
|5| To have a life.
My weight and the way I see myself has prevented me from having one. I don't really go out with friends all that often and I avoid places that are too public at all costs. It's lonely. I want to be able to socialize without analyzing every look and word. This is probably going to be the hardest goal to reach, because there is a lot of emotional healing that has to happen before I can be comfortable around people. With counseling and this weight loss I plan to do, though, I think I'll be able to be that girl someday.
|6| So I can go after my dreams.
Not only does my weight hold me back from going after what I want, but I'm sure it also makes other people look down on me and think I'm incapable. I don't want to be turned down for a job or not be able to do something just because I'm fat. It's terrible, but society has and will judge people by their outer appearance.
|7| For my future family.
My future children deserve to grow up with a mother who is active and an important part of their life. They need to learn good eating and exercising habits starting from day one. I'll be the one to teach them.
|8| So I'll be noticed.
Weight is like an invisibility cloak. The more you have, the more you go unnoticed. I've been places where no one talks to me for hours at a time. Now, this probably has a great deal to do with me and the fact that I am pretty shy, but still. No one wants to be friends with a fat girl. She must be no fun. It's one of the things that hurts me most. But I'll get there!

|9| To rub their faces in it.
To all of the people that made fun of me, ignored me, smirked at me, forgot me, I will prove you wrong. I will do bigger and better things than anyone ever expected. And don't come running to be my friend when I'm beautiful and successful! I'll get where I'm going without you, and I wont need you after that, either!
|10| For ME.
I deserve to be happy, I deserve to be happy, I deserve to be happy.
