What I want isn't what I need.
I want a new camera...specifically the Canon Rebel xSi.
I want it badly.
So I can take pictures like this:
and even this....in winter, no less:

I know. So dreamy and warm and yummy.
But, as much as I want it, it doesn't mean I need it. I can come up with a host of reasons why I may need it, but that doesn't make it true.
The thing is....the camera I want is tied to my promise.
My promise....to myself.
You see, months ago I joined Weight Watchers.
It was time. (that is another post in itself)
And after a little success and a few weeks I made a promise to myself--when I made it to my *goal* weight....a healthy weight, I'd buy myself a new camera.
I'm still nine pounds out...ugh. Plateau has set in and I'm getting antsy.
I want my new camera.
But, more than that I want a healthier me....and I want to keep my promise.
