A new incentive!!!

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

So, I have the most wonderful friend in the world who surprised me with a very generous belated birthday present - a $166 dress that I fell IN LOVE with to wear for my vocal recital this fall, but could never afford. I really can't believe that she is willing to do that, but I can't complain!

So here's the deal...not only do I want to look good in it, I want to lose weight so I can be a size that doesn't cost extra! The main thing is losing enough to get my waist size down....10 inches. Can I do that by the middle of September when it needs to be ordered? Is that enough time???

I carry most of my weight in my waist (the least healthy place, of course!), so I do have to lose some inches in my waist and chest, but my guess if I can get my waist down 10 inches, the rest will follow. Oh my heavens...and to top it all off, I'm limited in what I can do for exercise because of back and leg issues. They are doing better, but still - makes it challenging.

    Can you do it? Yes! Please revel in all kinds of progress, regardless of whether you make the deadline to order the dress. There's something about a red dress, isn't there? Makes you feel alive, strong, powerful! What about resistance bands to work your arms, or an arm bicycle for cardio? Swimming burns a bunch of calories, too, with less stress on your legs and back.. emoticon
