What will it be???

I was watching a person work out today and it just amazed me how much some people can do... Example, run on the treadmill. I don't think even if I was 120 I could run. I am to much of a klutz, but we will see? This lead me to think about my passions and what will they be when I am no longer carrying around this extra person...

I don't think I will ever like hiking, it just does not interest me... But I do enjoy walking around in the forest, just not hiking up mountains... We have a mountain here called camelback and I don't ever see me being interested in personally see the top of it.

I know I will water ski again. I grew up water skiing and can't wait for my kids to do this. Obviously I have not done this with them because a 350+ pound person on the boat is not a real treat to look at. Plus there is no way in hell I would be able to pull myself up out of the water. But I will be skiing next summer. I might not be at goal, but I will be at least 100 pounds down and that will look a lot better!

I want to white water rapid on a raft with a bunch of people...that looks so fun. Can't wait.

Another thing I really want to do is go to a nude beach... I have always wanted to to that. How freeing would that be. After all of these year hiding in the fat suit to just be out there for all the world to see and not even care... I think that will be the first thing I do when I hit goal... kind of my coming out party. My husband says he would go with me. Not sure if he could bare all but he would try... I love him for at least trying... I'm sure he is hoping to see lots of boobies! But I still love him for going and being my wing man!

I want to play softball again. I have not played since before my banded son and he is 19! Its been a long time. I think I would be afraid of the ball hitting me in the face but we will see.

I want to be addicted to yoga... Never done it but it looks so peaceful and satisfying... I have no idea but it looks that way to me.

Those are a few of the things that I am looking forward to doing... I can't wait to find out what I will be passionate about... Another wonderful thing the band will bring!

Hey lady! I have been soooo behind on reading blogs. Going to try to catch up tonight b/c the mass chaos of the weekend is Science HW, uh!

Soooo, you need to change your mind set. Don't tell yourself you'll never be able to run. I jogged at 278 lbs and everybody said I couldnt', md said I was too big I should "just walk", and so. I knew I could, I used to be a runner. The point is not that "i think you should run", the point is that you should THINK AND BELIEVE you can do whatever you want. Anything is possible. Like if you're walking on the treadmill at 2.0 start by kicking it up to 3.0 or 3.5, a gradual change to pick up the pace. Eventually you'll be fast walking and almost doing a light jog. Just have faith in yourself.

And you don't have to be the kind of person who enjoys outdoor activities. I think the key is to enjoying and maintaining some kind of daily movement, ie. exercise. So if you walk, jog, swim, or do videos, it doesn't really matter.
