The best? It's wishcasting wednesday. If you're unfamiliar, it's "...a safe haven for wishes, a fertile field in which to plant wish seeds and have them witnessed and tended lovingly. It’s a place where magic begins."
This week Jamie asks us:

I don't think this one is any surprise to anyone who reads my journal. It's my ongoing journey/battle/whatever-you-call-it with my weight and getting to a place where I'm healthy and happy. I wish to lose weight, get in shape, and take the steps I need to in order to insure my health as best as I can. I have two parents who died fairly young - my father died of cancer when I was little and my mother had a heart attack two years ago. So far, I've lost 75lbs, removed soda from my diet for 91 days (and counting! I almost succumbed this weekend, but decided the feeling of not having it was worth more than the craving), and have been slowly getting back on track with tracking my calories.
What I need to do now is step it up and add exercise back into my routine. It's about restructuring my time and priorities. I really want this, but I've realized that I have to put the work in for it to actually pay off. That means, setting aside an hour at least four days a week for working out. It's worth it. I just have to get myself motivated.
I wish to find the motivation to push me forward on my continued journey to lose weight and get healthy. I want to remember to reward the small steps in the right direction (which is why I know exactly how many days I've avoided any soda!) and not be so hard on myself when I fall down. I need to believe that I can do it and that I deserve to do it. I wish for my mind to catch up with what my body wants from me.
