Last night walking home from weight class I was thinking of some of the big reasons I want to continue to lose weight and get in shape to keep me motivated. (awesome what a good ass kicking fitness class will do for you hey?) So I'm starting a list. I did this before I lost any weight and it was great. I encourage all of you to come up with a list, or add to mine! Help me out! Here goes:

1. To be a fitness instructor
2. to look like a fitness instructor (I took a class from a much bigger girl before, and while it ws a good class, I couldn't stop thinking the whole time about why was she big, wasn't the class working?)
3. to be able to wear the first thing I try on, not have to change to find something that looks nice
4. To not get crazy fat when I'm pregnant
5. To look good at my sister's wedding
6. To be able to shop with other people
8. To be able to wear all my current clothes
9. To not get asked if I'm pregnant
10. To feel better
11. To keep that cholesterol in check - it was high when I weighed 20lbs more
12. To prevent diseases and cancer - exercise can do this!

anyway, that's all I've got right now. I'm sure I'll add to it.

Yesterday was good. The weight class was good. I'm always tired and don't feel like it at the beginning, but the first song gets me into it already. I also want to get in better shape so squats don't kill me. But if they don't I guess I'd have to up the weight and they'd hurt again. Before that I was playing with Daisy like a crazy person. Hubby even wondered if I finally lost it. We were playing tag in the house. But a sort of tag that dogs play, where no one is it, you just randomly run and chase each other. then we played another weird game where she tried to steal the smarties box from my hand (she dug it out of the garbage, I didn't just eat them!). She wouldn't bite me, but would grab a tiny corner with her teeth or try and lick it out. I was killing myself laughing.

Not really any plans tonight. I've got to make my Christmas wish list and shopping list. Plus I've got 3 magazines I haven't read yet, plus 2 books I wanted to finally get at reading. Might be a mellow one. Plus i'm a sucker for election television.

I was just doing the same thing.

I think its a great idea to spend sometime re-evaluating things...where you have come from, where you are, and where you want to be. It definitely helps you keep focused that is for sure.

Good luck!

Nice list. I totally hear you on #3! The one thing I loved when I was thisclose to my goal weight was being able to put practically anything on and not worry about which jiggly bits were visible.

People ask you if you're pregnant:???? No friggin way! maybe because you choose not to have a drink, definitely not because you look it!
