enough is enough

So, since my last blog enrtry 10 days ago, I wish I could say that a stranger asking me if I was haing a boy or a girl (NOT PREGNANT... just fat), changed my behaviors.... but it hasn't. I have a myriad of excuses, but the bottom line was that I just didn't change my eating habits.
To add insult to injury, I ordered a new bathing suit (miraclesuit, of course... I'll take all the help I can get!), and was quite disappointed when I tried it on and looked in the mirror.
Today, I had to turn in a form to order new white coats for this next year. I decided to order 2 sizes- my current size and the next size smaller.... to help motivate me to get things going again. As you can imagine, most people don't order 2 different sizes... of anything clothing related... so I had to offer an explanation. I told them that I was trying to lose weight. I came out at said it. I mean I have talked about it other people, but this is different. Now I feel a sense of obligation to wear the smaller white coat before the next year is over... to prove my ordering 2 different sizes isn't completely stupid. And perhaps a little more accountability isn't a bad thing.
In that spirit, I got off work super early today, so I went back by a certain store that I have not been to in months.... My Fit Foods! The wonderful store that prepares healthy, low-cal, low-fat, and some low-carb meals. I bought several days worth of dinner. And I put my BodyMedia Fit back on... no fooling myself about my calorie burn.
And I worked out for the first time in a long time after I got home! There was alot of jiggling involved. Driving home the point that I really need to get back on track. 8 1/2 wks until the Bahamas vacation with my inlaws!! My time is running out for that goal.
Time to get to work!!
