Former Diva Turned Jiggly Mom

Here goes nothing. My mother has been raving about this site and I figured I better get serious about making "me" a project.

I am the single, working mother of a 5 year old boy. I am saddened by how I have let myself go. I am tall and "carry my weight" well, I am told - so pound by pound was put on without too much thought about it. I used to be skinny - yes, SKINNY.

I am officially making myself my own project. Turning off the TV and getting on the right track to being healthy, and if I become skinny again as a result - well that's just icing on the cake!

Hey babe, how are you doing? Sorry I haven't really been around - you sound like you were pretty frustrated a couple days ago...are you feeling better? Averaging a 9.51 min/mile on a 5k training session is WICKED! I've been trying and trying with the running, but I (a) can BARELY run 5K (actually i still don't run the whole thing) and (b) have NEVER averaged faster than about 10.5 or 11. So you are impressive! About those non-scale victories...you know what's fun? Trying on clothes from the back of your closet that you had pretty much forgotten about and were going to get rid of but didn't quite get around to it (please don't tell me you're so organized that you don't have those!). My weight's been stuck somewhere between 176 and 184 (quite the range, eh?) for weeks and weeks, but I've been trying on clothes and it feels like SHOPPING FOR FREE!!! Clothes i thought were just ugly are actually pretty nice...they just didn't fit me fifteen lbs ago! So...just in case you didn't already do that, I hope you do...enjoy. I stole a skirt from my unfairly skinny roommate today!! It's too big for her, and okay, it doesn't look great on me...yet, but the very idea that we could share clothes is ridiculous (ridiculously awesome that is). She's like 5'4" and probably weighs about 125 lbs, so clearly it was way out for her to buy a skirt in a size 9, but now I benefit!! Ha ha ha! Okay, well, I hope you enjoy this novel! Take care, and keep on keepin' on - the scale will move soon too!

Thanks for the support-I have a huge weakness for chocolate too-so around this time I try to keep it out of my house-haha. I am trying to forget I bought those skinny cow ice cream bars-they will be my treat for tonight-if I do good.
