Amber — feeling light

Just a quick update!

I  somehow managed to make it down to 173 lb this week.  YAY!  I worked out EVERY day this week, either at work in the gym or at yoga.  I have also been eating very healthily for the entire week…but, of course, I let myself have a few treats too!  I am a taurus…not one for self deprivation!  I feel great today.  I feel light and powerful and proud of myself.

I definitely think the July 15 goal of 170 is possible!  I’ll be working security at the Vancouver Folk Festival that weekend (haha, I know!), and I’m hoping to be all decked out like a hippy and looking/feeling gorgeous in the summer sun.  The VFF is one of my favorite yearly music events, and this time I get to enjoy all of it for free because I landed this volunteer gig, thanks to a friend. I LOVE my life!

By September 15, 2010 (the day before I leave for Europe), I am hoping to be at 160!!!  Yes yes yes yes!  I can do it!  I can’t even imagine how good it will feel to revisit some of my favorite European cities 40 lb lighter than the last time I went in 2006!  Wow.  That’s definitely something to look forward to.  🙂

Thanks for all the support and love.

Here’s a quote that inspired me this week:

“Oh soul,
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry?
You are in truth
the soul, of the soul, of the soul.”

Rumi
