Last night was amazing. The media announced our soon to be 44th president... my guy, Barack Obama!
(I'm going to keep this short and non-political as possible...) Barack Obama is a man who reached not only his goals last night, but also filled the dreams of many minority Americans in the United States.
Against many odds - not just in this presidential race, but also in his life he will now be living his dream. If an ordinary man can accomplish what he has at such a young age, that is very inspiring and motivating for me to continue working toward not only my educational and career goals but also my weight loss goals.
If a minority kid from Kansas can grow up to be President of the United States... one of the most powerful countries in the world - I can shed these 60-something pounds!
It's the eve of my weigh-in and this hasn't been a horrible week - nor the best... but I'm excited and motivated and want to hurry and get on that scale. I can do this, even if I just have a tiny loss or no loss at all week. I have found new inspirations, a new surge of motivation, I want this and I can do this, I can and will reach my goals.
And guess what... SO CAN YOU!
