My new personal goal!

2090 Views 25 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  k/c mom
So back when we had all of the diet topics I mentioned I had started weight watchers (I joined Nov.1)... well, I just LOVE IT!!! I have lost 14.4 lbs in two months. I had only wanted to loose 15! Now, I see what I look like and I think I'm going to go for 5 more!

ANYWAY! I also mentioned that I when I was in college and for the 6 months post-grad I taught aerobics. Being that I taught like 12-15 classes a week for 4 1/2 years I got a little burnt out and gave up teaching/working out all together (oh, if my students only knew...
). So, I have started to get a little antsy! I really like to talk and spread my "knowledge" of things I truly believe in, so I have set my goal of becoming a Weight Watchers Leader.

The only problem is THEY have to ask
HAHA! So, all I have to do is loose my 5 more lbs, then keep it off for 6 weeks so I can become a lifetime member. After you become a lifetime member you can be asked to be a leader. How fun!!!!

So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. This way I am still promoting fitness and healthy living which I feel is SO important.

Now, I'm going to send a little note to Oprah because I have a new "Wildest Dream" I want to help young (15-20 year olds) who are overweight learn how to manage food and excercise...

This may mean I have to go back to school to get a health science/ or some-sort-of-other-health-degree. Or maybe I should get a doctor to be my partner... Can you tell I am on a roll? I am just so excited! I could burst right now. I think I finally figured out what I want to do with my life... I want to help people!!!!! YEAH!!!!

Dear Oprah,

I am a 23 year old who has struggled with my weight since my early teens. After my first year in college, I felt as though I really ‘kicked the unhealthy habit’ and I was in the best shape of my life. I went from doing no physical activity whatsoever to teaching 12 aerobics classes a week while going to school full time. I was so lucky to be able to share what I loved doing with so many others! I loved helping people my age reach their fitness goals.

The summer after I graduated I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I had a major operation with the removal of a 5 lb tumor and my right ovary. For 8 weeks I couldn’t exercise and I had a MAJOR slide down hill.  My fear of regression made me lose control of my life and I turned to food to make me feel better.  But, I only felt worse.

On November 1st, I made a vow to get healthy.  I realized my life was too precious to waste.  Since then, I lost over 14 lbs and I feel great!  Once again, I was completely changed my attitude and now, I strive to be the healthiest person I can be.

My wildest dream is to actually help others!  There’s an epidemic of young people being overweight.  I want to help the teenagers and young adults manage food and exercise.  I have an idea to have a week long cruise that is dedicated to seminars, workout options, health eating tips, etc.  I think it is so much easier to talk with someone who has been through an “unhealthy stage” for young people to understand they are not alone.   
Oprah can you make my wildest dream come true????

I haven't critiqued or written a paper in a long time
.  I also tend to change too much. 
TEEHEE  Good luck Natalie!!!!

At 31 I was diagnosed with Ovarian, an other cancer. After extensive surgery I pulled through. It left me disabled but thankful to be alive! It teaches you to live everyday to the fullest! It taught me an appreciation for life that I do not think I would have had. That was over 10 years ago and I still get a stilled heart when I go for my check ups. I Never take a minute for granted. Helping others is a great gift to them and to you. It is a great feeling of accomplishment when you help yourself, even greater when you help someone else. To help someone else shows that you are a very caring person who has the unique gift to look beyond yourself. You are a beautiful person and I hope all your dreams come true. What a beautiful gift you are giving to others! I look forward to seeing you on Oprah!
