The Red Line

I am catching up on Biggest Loser episodes, thank you Comcast-On Demand. Tonight's competition featured the dreaded red line. Each contestant, scared of going home worked out harder than ever before to avoid falling below the red line and going home.

As I watched the show, from my comfy couch and not the gym on the treadmill where I should have been, I thought about the things in my life that are motivators. What is my red line?

I have a goal in my head to be a size 8 again, but I have very little motivation to actually make my goal. Danielle and I were talking recently about letting go of size and number goals and focusing on being healthy. After all, if I am healthy with a BMI below 25, I will reach my size and number goal.

So I think I have finally figured out my red line. My red line is the LBD that hangs in my closet. This week that black dress symbolizes my goal of a size 8, my desire to see a big number loss on the scale, and the plan that I will stick to so that I will reach my goals.

I realize this post is a lot of talk, but I promise I am making a plan to take these words and turn them into actions.
