Yep, you heard it right. This is where I ALWAYS quit. At least for the last 10 years. I get down under 220, my "fat clothes" start fitting again- albeit wearing them would cut off all circulation to my lower body so I wouldn't actually be caught dead in them in public; I'm starting to feel more confident in myself, and then I stop resisting temptation. From there, I quickly regain the weight that I had lost and sit and feel sorry for myself.10 years like clockwork.
But not this year. I don't have any of those feelings of stopping.
I have a graduation party at the end of June that I am bound and determined to wear those old "fat pants" to and look good in them.
I turn 30 on July 24th, followed quickly by my future sister-in-law's bridal shower in which I am determined to be out of the 200's FOREVER. Even if I'm at 199.9. Seriously.
I am currently thinking about going to school for massage therapy, which would start on August 22, and I want to not only be out of the 200's, but officially out of my fat pants (read size 16) and into 12/14.
My brother is getting married in September, and I want to look HOT.
In October, I have the Alzheimer's Walk (providing I'm not in school, because classes would be going on all day that day). If I am in school, there is always Halloween, and like I said previously, I want to look HOT.
Then comes November and I want to surprise all the family that hasn't seen me in a year on Thanksgiving. Same goes for December.
Then comes Dec. 31st and for the first time in forever, I refuse to be sitting at home watching the ball drop, whilst drowning in my tears and hanging out with my cat.
Then there's this guy. And no, I am not losing weight strictly to get this guy's attention. However, I live in a small town of 20,000 people or so, surrounded by towns much, much, much smaller than it, and let me tell you there are very few single guys over the age of 21 hanging around. And when there is, the competition in fierce. So I admit, I may be acting a little vain.
So this is usually where I quit. But not this time. I think I've finally got this...
