Tomorrow is the big day!

Had a great day today - well... exhausted day... but good day in all. I stayed up a bit too late for my own good finishing a paper and then had 4 classes today! But I feel great. I am optimistic for tomorrow. I am just feeling so good about the changes in my body. JT is going to do my measurements for me so I can have that information along with my weight. I am excited to see if there is a change. :)

We are headed to Dallas tomorrow for a dental appointment for JT - the good thing about that is that we are going to stop out the outlets on the way home! Maybe i'll find an inexpensive "reward" for myself! haha :)

I have a softball tournament Saturday then softball practice Sunday :) Can't wait - such a great way to burn calories while doing something I LOVE! I just hope its warm!

I want to discuss quickly body image. What do you all think body image is? Do we perceive ourselves differently than others? Why is it that even though i've only made a little progress toward my overall bowl do I feel so much better? And this feeling of contentment with my body - will that make me slack because I am comfortable? well... it won't because I won't let it - but for some reason it ALWAYS has before. I start looking and feeling better than ever and then I just stay right where im at until I gain it all back.

Thanks for reading! <3

  1. Well personally I do believe we see ourselves differently from others, I told you I kept seeing myself as I was my Junior year in high school... forever ago! So I never did anything and kept gaining until I became probably twice that size. Sad, but very true. The only way to fight it, I think, is to have a part of you that is realistic. Sometimes this sounds cruel (that voice that's keeping you realistic) but it's a motivator. At least for me anyways. It's the only way I've been able to keep moving and make the changes I have... oh and with your help of course!! I'll try and help keep you on track, though you're so much better at this kind of thing than I am. I'm rootin for ya!!
