It's time to come clean. Tomorrow I enter back into the place that I know I am supposed to be, the place where I should have stayed, the place where I feel my best....I tell you this in between little handfuls of chocolate chips.....that I am bittersweetly saying goodbye to because in 2 hours it will be November 12 and that is the day that I sign my name to a commitment that I will get back on the wagon....I tell you again as I am eating a few more little chocolate chips...and....wearing a really cute, really stretchy dress, just like the other ones I've been wearing over the last few months as my other clothes have shrunk and shrunk and shrunk in the washer? Wierd.....the more chocolate I eat, the more the clothes shrink. But....it is time...
....and here is the plan that I start tomorrow with several of my friends and family......who may think that I have forgotten that tomorrow is the day that we all start cracking the whip...but it is not...........and I am going back into this hard-core......I have been feeling so yucky and tired and nothing fits...seriously....and I just found THIS picture that I took when I was doing just this sort of lifestyle eating & fitness plan(please don't be offended by this photo....my mother is already going to ground me for showing my belly....and I am already sitting here bawling my eyes out because my belly does not look like that as we speak...but this is super motivating for me...and if I can do this, so can you....where is that girl?)........and it was only a bit over a year ago that I took this photo....but believe me, I do not look like this right now.....but I have faith that I can get there soon............man oh man....why can't we just work hard to get where we need to be and then just stay there? I kept it up for years.....but now I have almost 20 pounds to lose.......BUT I KNOW IT CAN BE DONE, and I am excited!!!!
anyway......I just had to post this because if I make it so public, I can not falter....and this is to remind my group who committed to start with me today that WE ARE DOING THIS, and YOU CAN'T GET OUT OF IT.......we are trading the chocolate chips for celery sticks.......and I'm getting back in the gym too.....
Share your weight loss/fitness/health success stories here...PLEASE!!!
My goal is to fit into those little green swim shorts by spring break.....man, I hope I can do it. I am scared this time....help me! Anyone live in Nampa who can be my gym partner at the rec center? (I am serious!)
Lotsa Love...but not in the form of chocolate.
