Day 31

So... instead of the typical "What I did today" post, I'm going with some motivations. I have many goals and wishes; lots of driving desires behind why I'm doing this. Here's the low-down:

  • I want my boys to have a mom that can keep up with them
  • Want to wear cute shorts- this summer and every one here after
  • I know I have an awesome figure somewhere in here and we just never met
  • Want to wear skirts and high heels and look great in them
  • To buy a great bathing suit so I don't have to wear shorts and a camisole into my own pool
  • Can't stand the belly roll when I sit
  • To extend my life via a healthier lifestyle
Sure some the reasons are vain. But when you've lived in a plus-sized body all of your adult life (minus like 18 months) all you want is great clothes that flatter you, not look like tents. So forgive my shallowness on some of my desires, it is what it is.

When I was a kid, and even a late teenager, I wondered what I would look like when "I grew up." Well, here I am, and this is NOT what I had hoped for. I now realize that I am the catalyst needed for the changes I want. I just told a super sweet gal in my classes at school that by the time our next graduation rolls around in March, I'm gonna be "frickin' hot!" Yup. That's where I'm headed ; )


  1. THAT WAS ME! I'M FAMOUS! I'm the gal you told that you'll be frickin' hot! (ps thanks for calling me super sweet!)

    Kara, you are so amazing. You are beautiful inside and out and I can't wait to see what the next year will bring. I am so excited for you and know that you can do this.

  2. Wow, so motivating. i have been trying to do the same, or close to it. I have had the same feelings and it was reassuring to hear some one say it out loud. Good for you and good luck. We were very similar in grade school and it looks like we are again!!~~Natalie

  3. Aw! Natalie :) Well join me on this journey- find what works for you and find a good support group! I'll join your support group, I've become a GREAT weightloss cheerleader (I always wanted to be one in high school. A real one.)
