See that spare tire ... see that huge butt ... see that cellulite ... and those rolls. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE
I must do something about this. Now ... My BMI is in the acceptable range, but I am not happy with it and I need to do something about it. I want to lose AT LEAST 20 pounds and I want to do it without cutting out all of my favorite foods. As Bethenny (who is my icon by the by) would say "Know Thyself" ... I like beer and I like some junk food and there is no way I can cut these things out for the rest of my life ... so I need to find a way to work around the OCCASIONAL (yes portion control is vital) beer or pizza or chips. Another problem ... I lost all my running stamina and persistence slowly in college. It is now gone ... sigh ... I must get it back.
So ... here's the ultimate deal ... now that you've seen my chunky pictures and you know my goals ... I'm going to keep you updated. I'm going to keep you appraised of the goings ons off my weight ... the things I eat ... what I do to work out ... and the weight I lose. Hopefully I won't have to keep posting unflattering pictures of myself in a swimsuit :(
This is REAL people ... this is TRUE LIFE: I must lose weight
This isn't an unrealistic account of someone who is already skinny and just bitching about a pound and of course this isn't the biggest loser ... this is the place of in between, where most of us are. And I'm going to share my journey with you.
"The business of being happy requires making a conscious choice. People think being happy will just happen to them someday, if only they do this or that right. But it doesn't - you have to choose it. You choose happiness, you don't wait for it to choose you." ~Bethenny Frankel ... A Place of Yes
I'm trying Bethenny ... I can't do much to control the fact that no one is hiring teachers right now, but I can fix my weight ... I'm taking control and trying to be HAPPY
