Sally sings the songs and Sunny sings, too. I could have dreams and be young enough to believe them. “It’s easy” they said. “One step at a time” they said. “One step at a time” I thought. Walk, walk, walk, walk, walk, walk.
I love my family and friends.
I love my apartment.
I love that I am ambitious.
I love that I am happy.
I love the trees during Fall.
I love Narcisso Rodriguez perfume.
The fibres of her red, golden, brown and beautiful locks are alive with promise. The light reflecting on each strand, making her more beautiful than I’d ever imagined. The sun is bright and hurts my eyes and skin, but she does not feel it.
I’ve just received a new Book called Believe It, Be It by Ali Vincent, a former winner of The Biggest Loser. She talks about her struggle with weight loss as well as the internal reasons contributing to weight gain and eating habits. As much as I absolutely can’t put this book down, I wanted to take the opportunity to write this post, before I continue onto the next chapter.
My posts have been more sporadic lately, I’ve been spending some time thinking about and doing my new blog lifefollowsyou.wordpress.com – kind of like a pay-it-forward project – go check it out.
As I’ve been reading 10 pages a day of The Power, I’ve actively tried to encourage good thoughts and good feelings by surrounding and reminding myself of the things I want to achieve. I’ve written down what I want from life on heart-shaped sticky notes and they’re stuck up above my computer so that I can look at them often.
I’ve finally found the missing link standing in between my ability to merely breathe and to be alive. I’ve spent a lot of time complaining about the fact that I don’t do any extra-curricular activities and then proclaim that there isn’t really anything I can do, especially during the week.
The day finally arrived. The day that, eight months ago, I was dreading. A day that, four months ago, couldn’t come sooner and today, the day that holds a lot for me, symbolically.
I’ve now lost 7.3 (16 lbs) in three weeks. I was aiming for 8, but it’s still a great achievement. I’ve set myself some goals – one of which to delete my dating profiles and my Facebook.
Imagine I was at my goal weight.
Imagine I had the most amazing, loving, thoughtful and good looking boyfriend.
Imagine I got engaged to and married that same man.
Imagine I had beautiful children.
