So, now that Little man is 22 months…the big “2” right around the corner, I have decided enough is enough. I can no longer carry him like a swaddled baby when we go in stores so people think I’m fat because he’s a newborn. No, he’s too big for that. I don’t feel like playing the sympathy card by bringing all three kids with me, letting them act like animals that have escaped from the zoo, push out the belly slightly (it only takes a “slight” push….shut up) and let people feel sorry for me because they think I am pregnant AGAIN. No…I’m in no mood for that….
Instead, I’ve decided to get my act together. I KNOW it can be done. I’ve wanted to do it for some time now, but haven’t had the motivation. Now I do, ever since I stumbled across Lose It Bitches hosted by Think Tank Momma aka Adrienzgirl and a few others that you can meet when you hop on over there. THIS is the challenge I want to do because well…….hell, I don’t know why I picked this one other than the ladies over there seem so cool who wouldn’t want to be associated with them??
The pic I chose to post is not one of me. I chose my scale…now, mind you, I AM holding my cell phone so that accounts for something, but it sure does look like this says 174 pounds…doesn’t it??
WTF??? When did THAT happen?? The last I recall I was 120#’s and 5’8” and now I’m THAT (don’t even want to repeat the number) and 5’ 2”??? Shit….something has gone wrong….terribly wrong. All kidding aside, I was never 5’8” and was probably 120 pounds when I was in junior high….My goal weight is 145 for right now. I might settle for 150….if you know me, then you know that’s ok for me (big boobs and all) because I carry it well.
And HOW am I going to accomplish this? I have a few ideas which I have already put into place and hope to continue. My sis and I are gonna be svelt this summer! Oh yeah we are!! You’ll see!! Oh, and if you want to visit my sis, she’s over at 2010-Year of Miracles. She’s also joined the Lose It Bitches challenge. Way to go, Sis!!
Here is HOW I plan to accomplish this
1. I am planning on beating the shit out of the Wii boxers…oh yeah….especially the ones that think they can knock me down even while wearing sunglasses in the ring! I am going to do this 3x/wk.
2. Twice a week instead of boxing, I am going to do either the Wii Yoga or try the Wii Biggest Loser Challenge which I was eliminated from the last time I tried. Yes, Jillian Michaels eliminated me with a capital E! She’s no longer my friend. (well, she never was, but it’s nice to pretend sometimes).
3. I am going to use my knowledge of the Weight Watchers points system for my dietary guidelines. I DO have the knowledge…I’ve been a member before (although I didn’t like the people that attended the meetings I was able to go to-too flakey for me) and I’ve also lost weight on the plan one other time.
4. I want to be a winner. Not just for this challenge. But for ME. And if I keep my motivation and get the support from the awesome ladies over at Lose It Bitches, well, then I WILL have succeeded!! And that will be one resolution I can cross off my list for 2010.
