What I am looking forward to most

I think it’s dangerous to get into too much forward looking when you’re trying to lose weight. Best to manage your exercise and eating each day rather than stress about how hard it will be to keep the weightloss going for months to come.

But, just like every good diet, sometimes you have to indulge. And, today, I did just that: I thought about what I want to do once I reach my goal. What will I buy, what will I do, what do I hope for, how will I reward myself? Below, a sampling.

1. Short shorts. Ever since I was in high school, I wanted to fit into a pair of those little shorts sold at Abercrombie & Fitch. Can I wear these in public? Obviously not, unless I want to be shunned by society. These will be more like clean-the-bathroom or cook-dinner short shorts.

2. Allowing people to take vertical pictures of me without yelling “NO! NO! Not that way!” For now, belly button-and-up is how we do.

3. Not huffing and puffing after walking up the subway stairs. I really feel pathetic when that winded feeling hits and I need to take a moment on the sidewalk. I am 24 years old for crying out loud!

4. Jogging outside. You know those people you see running on the sidewalk? Well, are they ever chubby? No, didn’t think so.

5. Weigh-ins at the doctor’s office. Because, F YOU, I am now within the acceptable weight range for my height.

6. Running into former classmates, co-workers, etc. I’m pretty sure this completely self-absorbed and self-aggrandizing item speaks for itself.
