It’s Weigh-In Day and I’ve Come To Realize…

It’s Thursday again which means I’ll weigh-in later today. I’m excited because I did pretty well this week, but I’m always nervous because I hope the scale reflects that. So instead of focusing on what if, I’ll just wait for the results and do this fun little survey instead. Thank you Andrea, you are the queen of blog fun.

************

I’ve come to realize that my body works a lot better than I thought it did! It has been changing so much in the last year, and it’s going strong. 🙂


I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving I should not be text messaging or holding the phone to my ear or checking Facebook…or twitter…

I’ve come to realize that I need to workout 5-6 days per week to feel as good about myself as possible.

I’ve come to realize that I have lost a lot of weight! Seriously..it’s awesome. I can do this! 🙂

I’ve come to realize that I hate it when I don’t make a good impression.

I’ve come to realize that if I’m drunk I ‘love’ everyone around me. Ha.

I’ve come to realize that money
isn’t as important to me as it used to be, but I like it..a lot. And sometimes, I take it for granted.

I’ve come to realize that certain people are going to be memories and nothing more…

I’ve come to realize that I’ll always remember
what it felt like to be at my heaviest weight – sad and afraid that maybe I just couldn’t change…now I know I can because I am. Just saying.

I’ve come to realize that my sibling is a beautiful woman and a brilliant mother who is actually pretty fun to be around. 🙂 I’m sooooooooo excited that she and my niece will be visiting Mom when I visit. She got a job yesterday (yay!) that we thought would keep that from happening then it just worked out..so awesome.


I’ve come to realize that my mom is a worrier and a giver and the glue that binds our family.

I’ve come to realize that my cell phone is an addiction, and I’m oddly okay with that. Seriously, iPhone users, have you played Words with Friends? It’s awesome.

When I woke up this morning I realized that I still don’t feel 100%, but the sun is shining…and that makes me feel a little better.

Before bed last night I realized that I needed to take NyQuil so I did.

Right now I am thinking about the fact that I will not see Pearl Jam at Madison Square Garden tonight. And while my heart aches because of it, I know that if I really wanted to be there I would be. I’ve spent some time bouncing ideas around in my head as to why I’m not going, and I think I know the answer.

I’ve come to realize that my dad is wise, loving and hard working.

I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook I’m disappointed if I don’t have new notifications. What? Just keepin’ it real. 😉

I’ve come to realize that today is the day that I could maybe say that I’ve lost 100 pounds though I know it will most likely be next week instead.

I’ve come to realize that tonight will be an outstanding night with The Amish Outlaws and friends even though part of my heart will be at Madison Square Garden…


I’ve come to realize that tomorrow could be the day that I see Pearl Jam at MSG…they’re here two nights in a row. 😉

I’ve come to realize that I really want to win the hearts of other men and women who are similar journeys to change and become the person they want to be…:)

I’ve come to realize that life is about accepting who I am and loving myself without apology. I’m still working on that, but I’ve come a long, long way..:)

I’ve come to realize that this weekend will be a good one.

I’ve realized the best music to listen to when I am upset is Pearl Jam. I listen to them when I’m happy, sad, angry, in love, motivated, unmotivated, etc.

I’ve come to realize that my friends take me as I am – faults and all. 🙂 For the first time in my life I am surrounded by people who truly ‘get’ me…and I am thankful for this everyday.

I’ve come to realize that this year has been incredible so far. And I think there are more exciting things on the horizon.

I’ve come to realize that my husband is non-existent, but I know who he will be. And I think that might be part of the “exciting things on the horizon.” Just saying.

I’ve come to realize that maybe I should start scrapbooking more often. It’s a hobby that I love, but I don’t spend enough time doing it anymore. I did a little with girlfriends last week, but there’s so much that I want to do. I just need to get started! 🙂

I’ve come to realize that I love my niece more than life itself.

I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand how people can be so cruel and judgmental. But for every person out there like that, I meet many who are just the opposite.

I’ve come to realize my past is just that – past. It does not define who I am today unless I let it.

I’ve come to realize that parties are one of my favorite things. I love being with friends, presents and games.

I’ve come to realize that my life is better than I ever could have imagined. 🙂

    Good luck at your weigh in! I'm going to borrow this for my blog (weightloss blog), if that's okay. Loved reading what you've come to realize.

    "I’ve come to realize that today is the day that I could maybe say that I've lost 100 pounds though I know it will most likely be next week instead."

    This week or next, it will be a reality! Such an awesome accomplishment is right out there within your reach. It would be so much fun to be at the WW meeting when you get there. That will be a party! Revel in the glory!

    1) Good luck with the weigh in! I officially did my first one today.

    2) Really enjoyed this list (also enjoyed Andrea's, may steal it for my own use).

    3) As someone who dabbled in the paramedic profession and has friends who are paramedics, please, please, please do stop texting or checking your cell phone while driving. It puts your reaction times on par with someone who is driving intoxicated, except drunk drivers *usually* happen later at night when there are fewer people on the roads, cell phone drivers are out there at all hours of the day including rush hour, peak school hours, etc, etc.
