All new in 2011.

So here we are in 2011. It's crazy how fast time passes.

I renamed by blog today. "Look forward with hope, as opposed to back as regret," will always been a quote near and dear to my heart. Jillian Michaels said it a long time ago on an episode of the Biggest Loser that I was watching and it really affected me.

I'm not sure if I'll stick with this new name, but I was thinking and it sort of reflects how I feel about weight loss and health.

One of the things I realized when I started my weight loss journey was that time will pass regardless of everything else. For example, losing over 100lbs seemed impossible and like it would take forever. Yet, whether I did something or not time would pass. I could sit around for the next year being overweight and depressed or I could do something about it, because regardless of what I chose to do that year would come and go.

As far as everything changes, well, it does. It makes me think of a quote I read once, "However good or bad a situation is, it will change." If that's not the truth I don't know what is.

So here is to a fresh outlook for 2011.

In other news, I thought I'd share a small goal for myself.

I want to lose at least 10 lbs by the end of February. If I really apply myself I should be able to lose more than that. I'm excited about really going full force with the new Weight Watchers Points Plus system.

Anyway, if I make this goal, my reward is going to be an Orlando Magic jersey. We are going to a game February 25th so I'd love to meet this goal well before the end of February so I can wear it. :)

I love the mindset your new title reflects. It's very true - what you choose to do with your time is all up to you, but it will pass regardless. I can think of a certain quote about choices from a certain dead, gay, fictional :p But yeah, that's a great (and accurate) outlook!

Loving the jersey, but no Hedo??? :[ You will get there before then! <3

@Jen: Which quote? I don't remember. I guess he has a few about that, lol.

Nah, Hedo isn't a sure thing and I don't want a jersey for someone who may not be sticking around. Plus, Dwight is the (super)man!

Sorry, I suck at checking back! I wish it notified me when you reply. :[

"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." I still want a tattoo of that.

But Hedo is so magical! xD I'm sad about the loss but I guess since they lost to NOLA it's not that
