My Goal


It's already 3 days into the new year and I am still not "with it." In my defense I have battling a cold so my brain is a little foggy.
I used to make new year resolutions but is it just me or do we all seem to make the same ones each year? I always say that I am going to eat better, exercise more, yadda yadda yadda. I hear myself and sound like a broken record.
So this year is about goals. in 2006 my goal was to get on an insulin pump and quit smoking. I accomplished both of those. Last year my big goal was to lose weight and I finally joined Weight Watchers in August of 2007. So far I have lost 36 pounds but still have a way to go. On my personal blog I post my progress every week for all to see which helps a lot.
So this year? My big goal is to get to my ideal weight. You know the one on the charts at the doctors office to which we say, "That is way to thin!" That is the weight I want to will be by the end of the year. Getting there is going to take exercise, eating right, and all that "yadda yadda" stuff I was talking about but a goal seems so much more final. Like a checkered flag or the ribbon to break through at a finish line. I need a goal and now I have one.
I tried making a lot of changes in my life at once in the past and always failed. It has taken me two years to get where I am but I am thankful those baby steps have paid off.
