the truth

The truth is, I want to be thin...like reeeeeally badly. I want to be long and lean, not sickly thin like models who have starved themselves. I want to fit into all of my clothes without having to jump up and down or strike a new yoga pose. I want my pants to fit without the front pockets pooching out or back pockets hanging too low. I want that awful inner tube thing around my midsection to disappear and the flabby skin to firm up. The hard truth is...I am lazy, and I don't really want to bust my hiney working out every.single.day. I would like to be able to enjoy a slice of dessert without knowing the scale will not go in my favor the next morning. The harder truth is, I need to get over it, and get said backside into full blown get-this-weight-off-gear! I firmly (or jiggly..whatever) believe the extra weight I've been carrying around for a couple of years now is why my knees and hip hurt and why I'm so tired. I wish I could find the clip from the Oprah show from like a bazillion years ago. She was interviewing a couple, and the man said, "Oh baaaby, I'm SO tired!" It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen! Kelvin and I still laugh about that. But dude, I feel your pain! I've been working at working out more consistently since we returned from Labor Day weekend. The goal is to work out six days a week. The reality is, some weeks I've felt like poop and have only worked out two or three days. The scale has oh so slowly been creeping down, and up, and down, and up and down. I am staying the course though. Hopefully by the end of 2013, I will have lost 10 pounds. My goal is 28, so I have a ways to go.

So, how are you doing? What do you want reeeeeally badly?

  1. I am in the grove of working out six times a week but the scale is moving a lot slower than I would like! I feel so much better though!!! You will do it! You always look great though!

  2. I remember watching that EXACT show and my husband and I laugh about it still as well! I have a goal of losing 23 lbs before our daughter's wedding in May and have lost 10 of my original 33 lb loss goal. Exercise is not easy during the winter months due to my fibromyalgia, but am thankful for the pain free days. It's like one step forward and two back...
