I am ashamed of myself!
Did you see the date of our last post?
September, 2010!!! That is just sad.
So it's almost a year later.
Where are you on your quest to get skinny?
(And when I say skinny, it is my snarky way of saying "healthy" because that's what a real goal is!)
I'll tell you where I'm at........
5 pounds heavier than I was at this time last year.
This is the picture that really doubled my determination to trim down. That's me on the right at a recent 100 Monkeys concert with BellaTesoro, hisbellamarie, MrsKassie Cullen and 17forever Lisa. I just feel like I am huge in this picture. I know a person is more than their weight and how they look. However, I would like to feel good about how I look and I don't feel good about how I look in this picture.
I NEVER give up.....EVER!
So that's why I am back.
The reason I started this blog originally, was so that I had a place to vent and maybe create a support system with other chicks who had the same goals. Well I dropped the ball.
Well I'm picking the ball back up and getting back in the game.
So to get the ball rolling again, I thought I should tell you all where I am at right now - and be honest.
In this past year, I have gotten off track many many times. I keep getting back on and falling off. The truth is, I think my many failed attempts have really kept me from gaining more than the 5 pounds that I have gained. I am now 44 years old and weigh 220 pounds. I'm not embarrassed to say it, but on the other hand I'm am not happy with it. Here is the frustrating thing. The things I used to do to lose weight just don't work anymore!!! I guess it's my age. Maybe my metabolism is slowing down - but I just cannot get the scale to move. Has anyone else experienced this?
What have you tried to get over this hurdle?
So this is what I'm trying this week. I am cutting back on carbs and trying to make my meals more of the fruit and veggie nature. Carbs are my downfall....I can live with out meat....but give me bread and potatoes. So for a week I'm going to try to cleanse my body. My awesome brother seems to gotten my treadmill going again, so the heat is not an excuse not to at least walk. So I will be hitting the treadmill this week more as well.
So that is where I am at right now.
Please tell me in the comments where you are at with your goals right now. Maybe you can get the ball rolling with me?
