Don't wait until you get the perfect body
That's what I call the "wait problem".
What you need to do is quite the opposite. You are already beautiful. You just can't see it now. Learn to love your body exactly as it is and honour it. Make sure it looks as beautiful as it can. Use accessories. Wear make up. Be glamorous. Do anything you can so that when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, you like what you see. I know it's hard but you can't keep on living your life on hold. If you don't do all that you can to feel good today, you won't be able to find the energy or the motivation to do something to change your lifestyle to get to where you want to be. There has to be a shift. And instead of waiting for those pounds to melt off to feel good, start working on that good feeling about yourself now.
Start with your clothes. Just because you are bigger than you want to be doesn't mean you don't deserve to treat yourself now. Any figure can be complimented by clothes that are well cut and that espouse your shapes as they are. You can play with styles, cuts, colours and cheat to attract the eye to other parts of your body if needed. Hire a colour or fashion consultant. You want to feel good before you start on your journey because the journey is about enjoying going from A to B. It's not about putting your life on hold until you get to B.
Feel good about yourself now. It won't diminish your desire to improve your body but it will put you in the right set of mind that you will be wanting to take those small steps because good vibes foster that. Bad vibes only drive you to the fridge and to more comfort eating.
Blessings of lightness
