2007 goals

January 3rd, 2007 at 04:53 pm

Today I'm jamming to Imogen Heap (got her I Megaphone album for Christmas - it's great) and contemplating my future.

I've been skirting around leaving this state, finding a real career, being happy, for years. I'm tired of being wishy-washy about everything, just staying here because it's easier, applying to hundreds of jobs but getting nowhere. It's ridiculous. Something is going to change, and it is going to change this year.

I'm also losing 30 pounds this year, period. There is absolutely no reason for me to have the body I have. I have no children, and I'm not having any children, so why am I carrying all this weight?

My only New Year's resolution - start living my life the way I should have been living it all along.

    I have 56 lbs to lose this year. That's in addition to the 21 lbs I just lost! You can do it! You're certainly in good company this time of year.

    Sometimes it takes a bit of contemplation on what to do and how to proceed, and then comes the time for action. You definitely sound ready for action - best wishes on your goals!

    PS - I just wanted to say that your photos are amazing. Did you get a chance to take some after the New Year's Eve snow? What a pain to get around in, but so very beautiful.

    Congrats on the weight loss, Kris10leigh! That is awesome!

    Thanks, LittleGopher! I wasn't in town for the New Year's Eve snowstorm, but we got socked with 9 inches at my parents' house. I took photos there, and will post them soon!
