Friend Makin’ Mondays are back, and I’m so excited to be hosting it this week. If you’re no stranger to FMM then welcome back. 🙂 If you’re new and want to take part, all you have to do is copy this post and a link (with your own answers) onto your own blog then link up at the bottom of this post. After that, just take a few minutes to visit a few FMM bloggers and leave a comment or two. It’s a great way to discover new and awesome blogs. Let’s get to know each other, shall we?
I like…Fall. It’s my favorite season because I love watching college football, caramel apples, cool, crisp weather and Thanksgiving. Sam’s Club sells caramel apples in the fall that are only 3 WW points each.
I love…so many people…
I dream of…being loved by the man I love.
I wonder…what life will be like a year from now.
I know…what’s in my heart. I wish others could know it too.
I went…to visit my 8th grade Civics teacher last week because I wanted him to know that he has had a profound impact on my life. I was happy to know that he remembered my family and me quite well. He made me think about my life in a whole new way during our recent visit.
I think…I’m going through this difficult time right now because life is trying to teach me several lessons that will make me a much better person (if I react wisely.)
I plan…to go back to school very soon to study something completely different. Over the last few days I think I’ve figured out what I want to be when I grow up.
I regret…many things, especially lately.
I do…want to be the best version of myself.
I drink…at least 64 ounce of water everyday though most days I drink more…Yesterday I consumed nearly 100 ounces…
I wish…I didn’t stress out about the things in my life that I can’t control. I do it, but I really want to learn how to change that.
I am…much healthier, thinner and stronger than I was a year ago.
I am not…at my goal weight yet, but I’ve lost over 100 pounds. And more importantly, I’ve learned a lot about who I am on the inside, realizing that there’s more work to be done. I’ve always heard that the journey is just as important as the destination, and that means something new to me now.
I need…to workout hard again this week.
I hope…that I can continue growing into the kind of person I want to be.
I want…to go home…to return to the life I had before I left for Oklahoma in early August. I miss my life, my home, my dog, my bed and a lot of other obvious things.
I sometimes…try way too hard to impress people immediately upon meeting them because I want them to know that I’m more than just an overweight person. (More on this later this week.)
I always…love with my whole heart.
I can…swim so much further than I would have imagined a few weeks ago.
I cannot…correct every mistake I’ve made though I wish I could. The best I can do is not make them in the future.
I avoid…problems sometimes instead of facing them, but I’ve come a long way with that in the past year. That being said, I still have to work on it because my first instinct is often to avoid problems rather than facing and fixing them.
I will…do what is not easy because I hope know that in the long run I’ll be glad I did.
Now it’s your turn to answer these questions so link up my friends!
