Day 6 – I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful…

November 21, 2010

I am OBVIOUSLY behind on my 30 days.  I’m just going to pick up where I left off, though I think this one may be pretty hard for me.  I don’t really have a favorite super hero, so that’s out.  Now, out of all the fictional characters in all the world, I have to pick a favorite?!  That is hard.  I have to go through the TV shows I’ve watched, books I’ve read, movies I’ve seen…

I love Bill Murray’s character in What About Bob?.  He’s charmingly clueless and endearing.  He’s insecure, but so motivated, and his motto is what I always tell people when they’re trying to reach their goals, “baby steps!”

I could probably think of 100 more (Mulan, Doc from Back to the Future, Dr. House, Fievel Mousekewitz….), but Bob is quite good enough for now.

My Wedding Ring Doesn’t Fit…

October 17, 2010

  …because it’s too big!!

One of my very first, noticeable accomplishments during my weight loss journey (part deux) was the feeling of my beautiful wedding ring becoming more and more loose.  Thankfully, I hadn’t gained too much between my wedding and when I started my diet/exercise program, so we’re talking just a few weeks into it when I noticed this change. 

A small, insignificant thing to some, but a huge deal to me!  It was like dropping a dress size or something! 

Of course, my reaction was priceless; “Oh my gosh, honey!!  LOOKLOOKLOOK!  It’s too big!  I could flick my hand & it might fly off!”  That last part was NOT true, by the way, but you get the picture.

This is one of those things I’m always talking about!

Small goals

Baby steps

Make a big deal out of these little things, and you’ll find yourself noticing more changes, more often.  How motivating to celebrate every bit of progress, big or small!

Popping the Bubble

September 24, 2010

Recently, I’ve found myself trying to move outside of my comfort zone.  Trying new things and putting myself out there, harboring the risk of criticism and totally expecting it.  Starting a business that’s all about who you are, what you say and how you live is kind of terrifying.  I am trying to be an example to people!  I’m watching what I say, what I eat, who I’m talking to and networking with.  This is all to actually achieve the “bigger picture” I can see, but have yet to realize.

In addition to bearing my traumatic surgery story to the world wide web, I’ve also posted before and after weight loss pictures ONLINE, and, holy moly, now EVERYONE knows my weight!  This is all about courage.  I am actually about to record myself singing.  This is almost as traumatic as my surgery… ha.ha.

…you’re gonna have that

September 17, 2010

What do people write about on a blog?  Do you even want to hear what I have to say?  People are voyeurs by nature, I suppose… why else would reality TV be so popular?

I could start with my love of punctuation.  Sometimes I don’t even use it correctly, but purposely more often than not.  I overuse ellipses, exclamation points and (eeek) SMILEYS.  I also tend to get a little comma happy.  I feel like I express myself better with written words than spoken and I use the punctuation to really express myself.  When I talk, I use my hands.  When I write I overuse punctuation.

So my first post is really about nothing, but …you’re gonna have that.
