Using Weight

Lately, the issue of what to call a fitness pursuit has come up a couple of times.  It seems that "losing weight" isn't part of a complete goal statement because when you lose something there is an implication that you actually want it back.  Alright then, instead of losing eleven pounds of fat by Dec. 2nd, I am now using 11 pounds of fat by December 2nd, 2008.  I like it.  It states my intention, using fat to fuel my "beauty building," and it rhymes with my old way of saying things.
     I must admit, the past week has had it's ups and downs in terms of motivation.  Sometimes I feel the wind in my sails, and I feel like this journey toward my true self is simply meant to be.  Other days, it feels like every good decision I make requires a supreme effort.  Thankfully, each positive effort has brought me to the easy place again.  Sometimes you have to pull your sled, but then you get to ride it.  Please, please please, can I ride the sled down past 130 pounds?  Of course I can.
