Tight pants! This conjures up one of two images: a great-looking rear end in a cute pair of low-slung jeans, or a pair of chubby cheeks stuffed into Mom jeans that are a size too small, straining at the seams. Hmmmm. When I was younger, the first image definitely described my derriere. However, those days have not been around in some time. Today, I officially embark on a mission to restore my bottom to its former glory. It won't be easy, and it won't happen quickly; these things I know.
Like any cute butt, my plan consists of two parts. The first part is the eating part. There are a million and one eating plans that lead to weight loss. I've chosen to follow The Simple Diet, by Dr. James Anderson. It's very straightforward. No counting, no cooking, just eating. It's relatively inexpensive, compared to many of the commercial eating plans that are available. Plus, there are tons of different foods to choose from, which I'm hoping will stave off the boredom factor.
The second part of the plan is the exercise part. For me, this will consist of walking a minimum of two miles a day, six days a week. This shouldn't be a big deal since I own two dogs and walk them daily anyhow. Now I will just kind of formalize things a bit. I've figured out exactly how long my route is and have tweaked it to be just the right length.
My journey began this morning when I weighed in for the first time (ugh), and took my first set of measurements (double ugh). However, I am convinced that those disturbing digits are at their all-time high. The only direction they'll head is DOWN. It's up to me how quickly that happens.
