The Weighty Story

Monday, July 30, 2012

So, I've been gone for a while, and things have gone downhill, badly. What brought me back? Here's the story and a picture.

We went to Cleveland. Sounds glamorous, right? We went to a baseball game. And we got to sit in a suite. A suite with food. I ate. And ate. And ATE. It was gross. I felt gross. I realized I had completely lost control of myself.

My husband took this picture at the game:


Lumpy. Frumpy. Ugh.

So, we got back to our hotel and I went to the gym. There was a scale. I got on. It was ugly. I think I mentioned that in my last post - 22 hideous pounds. Ugh.

The good news is, I got home and got back on spark people. I've been working at it for the last week, and am already seeing results. Why, WHY do I always stop when this really works? That is what I aim to get to the bottom of.

    I agree with Kate - you look GORGEOUS!!! I know you may not be where you want to be, but please don't be so hard on yourself. And, Kate's right, you made some really big realizations in that post - figuring out what the problem is can be a HUGE first step!! Now, make a PLAN!!! xo

    And, while I'm here and thinking about it, thank you soooo much for all of the kind words you've been leaving for me on my posts. You're a HUGE encourager and motivator, and I appreciate you being a cheerleader for me!!! xoxoxox

    Kate - I have tw0/three(?) words that will change your life: Leave-in Conditioner. I use Garnier. It was HUMID in cleveland, and my hair is er....unruly, but, behold the power of the conditioner.

    I am totally going to put a big old asterisk by this blog and re-read it. Brilliant suggestion. I must unravel the mystery. MUST.

    I'm glad you are here too! You are such a wonderful motivator for me:)

    Sorry about the lecture. I get carried away sometimes.

    Sounds like you're breaking a teeny little crack into the mystery, just by acknowledging it. You might want to "star" this post mentally, so you re-read it frequently. Maybe put a reminder on your SP calendar every couple of weeks?

    I have a few posts of my own that I make myself read over and over. They are like letters to myself.

    I'm awfully happy you're back, because you sound cool. Also because you are inspiring me today. I'm going to just do today, today. I mean, I'm not going to get all weird and look back at when I was 17 and hot and sized 8. I'm not going to get disgusted at all the things I did yesterday (metaphorically and literally). I'm just going to do well TODAY. That's all.

    And LUMPY AND FRUMPY? PAH! You're gorgeous. What I see are:
    Pretty eyes
    LOVELY , frizz-free hair
    Fab smile
    Unwrinkled forehead
    Pretty ankles
    Good color choices
    HAPPY KID
    Perky, un-bulbous nose (I live in fear of the bulbous nose of my ancestors)
    Good teeth
    Did I mention the hair? HOW do you keep it so smooth?

    Don't you down-talk your lovely self.
