As it turns out, I'm bribing myself.

Because I spend half my day browsing Etsy and because I am in love with London Blue Topaz:
Ocean Blue Topaz Raw Circle Ring by singleBbeautiful
I'm thinking this might be my motivation for losing the 10lbs I've been trying to lose since.... well, let's just say since I've been the weight I am now. My current weight is 15 pounds less than what I was the Christmas before my wedding, and 10 pounds more than what I was in college. And 10 pounds less is always my goal.
Refering back to the first post ever, this year we were supposed to:
  1. Figure out a solid get out of debt plan. I'm making this off as accomplished, as this year was about the plan. This Jan. 1 I'll change it to just "Get out of debt" and hopefully this time next year we'll be able to check this off as well.
  2. Lose 15 lbs. Well, I'd be happy with 10. But fine, we'll go with 15 - so when I'm a solid 15 pounds lighter, I'm ordering that ring. As for the baby weight... we'll see what happens!
  3. Find something I love to do and get paid to do it.... well, folks..... neither of my current jobs fit the bill (please, like my mall job is anything more than access to nice pants at a huge discount) and I'm 100% clueless as to where to start. What am I qualified to do? Does anyone like their job, or am I trying to attain something 98% of people don't actually have? This may be a topic for another post.

Hmmm.... I didn't mean for this to be a full on "New Year's Resolution Check-In", but I guess that's what it is. I'd like to at least be 2 for 3 on the resolutions, so I'm going to really focus on #2 in October.... and I'm hoping that ring will make an appearence in our anniversary photos. So let's just make it 10 pounds, ok? Deal.

Weight check in on Monday. See you then.

I'm right there with you on the 10 pounds (but I'd rather it be 15). I often fall into that "I'm really okay for my age" thing with weight. Many would be perfectly happy wearing my size, but...I know what feels best for me, and this isn't it.

My reward is the outfit from the Chico's catalog that is on my frig. Jeans, white shirt, cool vest and belt...it will be mine!

Good luck,

Sue
