It's time to start seriously thinking about goal and life beyond goal. I'm in the last stretch. The home plate is only a powerslide away.
In the first part of what's likely to become a series of me talking to myself, I'd like to talk about a physical reward of getting to goal. Though I want to lose a bit more weight (that's another blog post in itself), I can't let the momentous accomplishment go by without something equally momentous to celebrate it.
Clothes shopping, spa, that sort of thing goes without saying. I plan on treating myself like a queen. But what I really want is something more personal and lasting: professional photos of my husband and myself.
You see, when we were married, I was overweight. I had to live with a dress I didn't really like because it was the only one that fit me in the shop. The photos of our wedding weren't very good to begin with and me stuffed in a dress only made the whole thing that much more embarrassing.
I really want to have lovely photos of my sweetie and I. Ones that I can be proud of and actually put on the wall and not hide in a box. So that's what I'm going to do. Hire a professional and get some candid portrait shots of my hunny and me. This time I'll look slim and hot and he won't be wearing a leg cast. And yes, that's a whole other story in itself ;)
