Ok so after a recent trip to the doctor I figured out that now was the time to loose weight if I was ever going too. It all began last week when I developed hives all over my body. This was nothing new- I am allergic to soooo many things it's really a guessing game when or if the hives are are going to appear. So as I am trying to solve the great question of what was it this time that caused the hives, I realized I had an appointment. So in my pea brain I thought I will just wait til tomorrow and let him figure it out. Bad Idea number 1.
After sitting in his waiting room looking like I had been rolling in poison ivey and the other people in the office moving across the room to get away from me I was called back. Given a gown and asked to undress didnt bother me. However, I was never as embarresed in my whole life as when he asked me to lift my tummy roll. That put me over the edge. Im not sure if i just had a good case of denial, or just never noticed that I had a little roll or what. Mind you its not a huge roll, but a roll just the same.
When I got back to my office, I began the paperwork to join the gym, began classes that night! This seemed at the time to be a good idea. Have you been to the gym lately? Lets just say there are not many overweight, over 40 year old women there. Basically was a buch of really skinny college age people that looked at me and rolled thier eyes. I was to sat the least discouraged. But then a quote from Fried Green Tomatoes came to mind: "TOWANDA!!!" If you have seen the movie you know what I am talking about. If you haven't you need to.....I'm just saying. I am determined to do 3 things in 2013:
1) loose at least 75- 100 pounds
2) run a 5k
3) get healthy
Stick around for the updates: good or bad, I am going to share them. Any encourgement will be apprciated. Now I am off to eat lunch. As bad as I want a cheese burger right now, I am going to eat the salad I brought from home here at my desk and then go walk for a few minutes. Have a great day and and until we meet again-
