Thanks for reaching out and creating this group for us. I for one need it, I've been struggling with food and exercise as of late. I find that i just want to constantly munch which leads me to make terrible food choices. It is interesting that i know when i eat like that I just don't feel good, and yet I do it. I suppose it is what I know. I also, know that I'm all or nothing kind of person. Either I'm eating healthy and exercising or I'm doing neither. sigh
Anyway, to your question Who do I want to be, what do I want to be when I grow up?
Interesting question. Physically I want to be fit and look good. Since, I've been on diets all my life it is a goal I have always wanted . I just don't seem to be able to get there! Certainly, is not for the lack of trying though. I'm 5'4" so ultimately that would mean 130-150 lbs. I'm not sure what I weight now (I got rid of my scales) but I'll go to the gym tomorrow morning and hop on their scales to see where I am. I know I have reverted to old habits and have gained back weight. Which is soooo depressing!!! I think it would be better for me to work towards smaller goals like you did, but it seems I always go for the huge goal, which can be intimadating and depressing to see the numbers.
I would like to be happy, want to hop out of bed in the morning excited about what that day may bring instead of huddling under the covers not wanting to get out of bed. I would like to find someone to share my life with, and although I like my job, I don't think it was what I'm intended to do.
Ultimately, I want to be fit, happy, confident, comfortable in my skin, outgoing, attractive, to be active and to just have fun, to enjoy my life
thanks again Patrick, and my love to all!
