Here's the point:
I weighed myself this morning. I'm not going to tell you what the scale said because it's an insult to my person but I will tell you that I am no longer the heaviest I've ever been because I've lost 1.2 pounds. To celebrate, I had Burger King for breakfast. I know what you're thinking but you can hush your brain because I will totally walk/run/jog all of this off at tomorrow's Race for the Cure. Not to mention that I've been putting in extra fitness time.
How? I'm glad you asked. Firstly, I now take my pups on 2 half-hour walks every day and a 3rd 15-minute walk at night. I get the exercise I need and they get all the fresh air and poop space their little hearts could ever want.
Secondly, I've decided that I'm not going to not eat whatever I want. Because depriving myself is what made me binge like a mad person.( Just ask CBS111 about that time at El Vaquero that I ate like a preggo hostage. It was uncalled for. Plus all the dump cake. Damn you, dump cake, for being so easy to prepare!) But now that I feel free to eat whatever I want, I do. And it's working for me because I like doing whatever I want.
Thirdly, I am avoiding the scale at all costs until absolutely necessary (also known as Friday mornings - post shower but pre clothing. Yeah, I'm nekkid). This keeps me from losing my mind with worry about my progress. So basically, no Wii fit for me. I'd probably be consistently depressed by its mockery.
And finally, I remind myself every day that this will only get done if I do it. I spent thousands of dollars last year only to regain all the weight plus some more. All of my fantastic Buckle clothes don't fit and I refuse to give away anymore shirts. So based on my financial investment alone, I have to make it stick this time. Plus, I love myself too much to keep living this way. I looked in the mirror and for the first time felt fat. Like, fat fat. And unattractive. It's not supposed to be like this. I know that I'll feel healthier as the weight disappears; I've been there once before.
So let's get back to it Bloggies! It's time to get fit!
