Scale this morning: 169 lbs. -2 lbs this week. Goal weight: 170 lbs. Goal met and passed. I feel wonderful. I feel like a new person has been born in this body. I feel like there’s nothing I can’t do. It’s Friday. It’s beautiful out. I can’t wait to get out and enjoy the weekend.
Now that I am at my goal weight, I still feel like there is some work to do. There is a bunch of toning exercises I need to do to make sure I’m fully ready for the beach this summer. I am proud of my accomplishments and excited to see what the next chapter of my life will entail.
This is a good euphoric feeling that I have. Reflecting back on life, it’s really making me feel good to know that this is one less issue to worry about every morning when I wake up. The hard part is over. It’s just time to maintain it now and just keep working to get toned and ripped.
I made a pact with myself that if/when I lose the weight, two things will happen. I will go on a clothing spree and buy myself a whole new wardrobe because I earned it. Also, I will indulge and get a tattoo. The tattoo thing can wait til after summer is over because you aren’t supposed to be in the sun when you first get one, but I earned it. I will cash in on it soon enough.
Now that this has happened, I really do feel on top of the world. I’ve had friends write me messages telling me how I’ve inspired them to do the same. I am hopeful that they can keep up the journey. It’s not an easy one but it is a rewarding one. I will be the first to tell anyone that.
Now it’s time to take on a new challenge because life is all about challenging yourself. Let’s go.
