What am I here for?!

The Goals

-To lose at least 100lbs, preferably 120lbs

-To overcome my camera phobia. I'm too fat to be in pictures with my friends and family.

-To feel comfortable, and look good, in lingerie. (So sorry to any of my family that reads that. Scar you for life!)

-To look nice in a dress at church.

-To not have aching ankles because they have too much weight on them.

-To wear sleeveless tops!

-To have my skinny self photo shoot!


The Numbers


I have to be honest and say that the numbers really don't matter to me. There isn't a certain weight that I think I have to be at. There isn't a certain size I have to wear, though I had orginally told some friends that I'd like to at least be in a size 12 by Christmas. I am not even sure if that is realistic or not. The time line in which this all happens isn't really all that important to me though. But I'd like it to be sooner rather than later.

In my head, I have 140lbs as a goal weight, which I think is 5 lbs over my ideal weight. I will worry about that when I get there. I have a long way to go.

Why Today?

So why am I blabbering about this today. Tomorrow beings Phase 1 of the Ameris Shape program for me. I will begin their 15 day take off. There is probably going to be a lot of grumpiness on this blog for the next couple weeks!

I want to go into this with my goals visualized. I picture myself posing with the BFF in a picture and not being terrified of what the little digital screen will show when we turn it around. And I picture my husband scooping me up against him, and I actually feel small and feminine rather than like a walrus. Yes. Walrus.

My weekly numbers will start on Sunday! I will have my starting weight tomorrow because I am officially going to track it with the gym scale. It all kicks off for real and forever at 11am in the morning.

Let's hear it! Go Katie! Go Katie! Go Katie! (will continue to chant this in her head!)

I'll say it! Let's go, Katie! Let's go Katie! :D

I totally hear you. My goal weight is somewhere around 150, but some days that just sounds ridiculous. I'm sure you know what I mean. We can do it, though! I'd love to wear a sleeveless dress to church next summer, wouldn't you?? :)

I love your blog and I look forward to gettin' skinny with you! I just started my own blog a couple of days ago. I'm trying to train myself to run a whole mile without stopping (and gee, do I have a long way to go!). Check me out if you want at quest4amile.blogspot.com. Maybe we could encourage each other!! Keep your head held high, and I look forward to reading more of your posts!

For me starting has always been the hardest part. It's awesome that you are ready and that you have set a time and a place to begin. Having a blog has really helped to motivate me and keep me accountable for my own weight loss. The support you get online is great. I'm cheering for you too. Go Katie! Go Katie! Go Katie!
