Sorry, Wendy, you're getting your own blog post. This way it's recorded for reals on the main page, not buried in the comment. That makes it legit, and you are now accountable! Ha ha.
"Emily, I'm totally on board . . .
I'm ready to step out of my comfort zone. I'm ready to lose 30lbs (+70lbs). So, here goes:
Out of my comfort zone:
**Here it is, my actual weight: 250lbs. I had been hovering around 230lbs up until a few weeks ago and then BLAM, 20 extra pounds. I'm uncomfortable. My clothes don't fit. I wheeze after taking a flight of stairs. My long term goal is 150lbs, but for now, I'll start with losing 30lbs.
**I'm going to learn how to skate Roller Derby, even though it scares the crap out of me. It's about time I got a hobby that requires me to be athletic.
**I will start dressing in the way I want to and not in the way I have to (meaning, I will go buy myself some cute clothes - haha).
**I will start doing my hair in the morning. I'm good at putting on makeup, but not so good with the hair.
I'm sure more will come to me as we go along, but I think that's a good start. "
And I agree, it is a good start. Wendy, you get into roller derby and I'll come to the matches. There, that's a bit reckless for me!
Ask for some gift cards for Christmas, hopefully soon after we'll have some shopping to do!
