Combining Goals … Am I Crazy?

8 Apr

It’s no secret that my goal for reaching my target weight is to be able to go to Disney World and ride the rides.  I talk about it.  A lot.

Another goal I haven’t talked much about is participating in a marathon.  I can’t even imagine the body I have now being able to do that.  But once I’ve dropped a hundred pounds?  I think I could.  I know I could.

A few years ago, my mother talked about running a marathon at Disney.  Her sponsorships weren’t high enough and she ended up not doing it.  But what if I could?  What if I could get the sponsorships and do it?

I can’t even imagine how emotional it would be to run a marathon.  And then spend time at Disney enjoying the park.  I haven’t been there in 20 or so years.  And as silly as it sounds – that goal is what keeps me motivated on my weight loss journey.  I want to be there.  I want to ride the rides.  I want to be thin enough to be able to ride the rides.  To get over the embarrassment I felt a decade ago when I was too fat to get on an amusement park ride.  I want the shame I felt that day to be replaced with happiness.  Joy.

So the date is January 2014.  Can I lose 90 pounds by then?  That’s 9 months away.  Can I do it?

I think I’m motivated enough to try!
