My boyfriend has decided to lose weight. Since I found him attractive extra pounds and all, this decision was about him wanting to feel better about himself when he looked in the mirror. I totally support him and his efforts. (This is the good girlfriend talking.)
My boyfriend has decided to lose weight. His weightloss efforts have resulted in a 10:1 ratio of pounds lost. For every one pound I lose, he loses 10 lbs! I'm as jealous as Tonya Harding when she plotted Nancy Kerrigan's ice skating demise. I don't wish him any ill will, but by golly I wish the ratio was a little closer. (This is the bad girlfriend talking.)
May the best girlfriend win!

Guess what I just really figured out? Food's main purpose is to fuel my body. That's it. Nothing else.
If I use food as entertainment, I'm in trouble.
If I use food as a close friend, I'm in trouble.
If I use food as an anti-depressant, I'm in big trouble.
If I use food as anything other than fuel for my body, I'm in trouble.
Each additional pound I have on my body is the result of using food for something other than fuel for my body. Food has not been a great friend, confidant, or anything else.

I didn't quite stick to my plan in 2011. Okay, okay, I completely jumped off the bandwagon. Now it is time to face the music. In two weeks, I will have the dreaded physical. The moment where the doctor looks at me and states that I am obese (as if I didn't notice). She will tell me that obesity is not good for my health (as if I haven't noticed the pain involved in carrying an extra 100 lbs). She will ask me to try to loose the weight (as if I am enjoying the extra arrangements required to survive being plus-sized in a skinny worshiping world).
Oh, how I wish I had sticked to the plan from last year!!! Hopefully, I have lost at least a few pounds. So I can at least tell her that I have not had a net weight gain. Although between us, I lost 30 lbs last year and gained 25.
Things will be different this year. I have a much more realistic plan and the SP family. But oh the joy I will experience in two weeks...oh the joy.

I've recently become a fan of Adele (for those of you non-music aficionados, she is a female singer from London). Last weekend, I listened to her song, Someone Like You, that speaks of a lost love. While I definitely thought of a past crush, I sometimes feel like the younger version of my body is a lost love that has moved on with life without me.
"You know how time flies, only yesterday was the time of our lives." [Adele]
I remember that girl, trim and strong. I definitely wonder if I will see her again.
I will keep fighting to lose this weight that is making the completion of some other dreams a little harder.
Maybe somewhere along the journey, "I'll find someone like you."

In an effort to shake things up a bit, I went back to a previous weightloss program that garnered me great success. This old plan had just been revamped and I was nosey. After almost two months on the system, I realize that I miss SparkPeople. I miss the simplicity of SparkPeople and the ease of the mobile app.
Don't get me wrong, I still have great fondness for the other program. I have love for it, but I miss ya'll. I am now using SP food tracking to participate in the other program until my subscription runs out.
My goal is to loose 17 pounds in 10 weeks (12:01 am on January 1, 2012).
