If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

Nass has not made a scheduled appearance at my home since 2004. I eat what I want, when I want, which totally freaks him out. It bothered him so much that when he does occasionally drop by he has the shakes and can't look me in the eye. I very seldom drink less than 8 glasses of water a day, usually closer to 10. I will go a week or two at a time where I don't make it to my minimum calorie goal, but my percentages average about 25% fats, 25% protein and 50% carbs. Sometimes I get more than 25% protein and my endocrinologist had my DNA analyzed. My main predecessors were omnivores, but with the bulk leaning heavily to the carnivore side. Looking back at my records for the past two weeks, I've hit 45% carbs on two days and 50% carbs once - the rest have been under. My fats are always below, sometimes way below, the mean.

Two broken vertebrae, two ruptured discs and one disintegrating disk make it a challenge to build up the cardio except in the Spring, Summer and early Fall when I am in my pool 4 days out of 7. I have and use both a stationary bike and a treadmill to get in as much cardio as I can before I can no longer stand up. Those days, Kick leaves me alone. I have been known to play handball with him. By that I mean not with him, but actually using him as the handball. Being asymmetrical, he tends to bounce in some unexpected directions.

Getting up in the morning, most days, is hampered by Chronic Depression, but I've learned to roll off the bed and that usually gets me jump started (that brings a strange scene to mind, I mean, rolling off the bed and getting jump started - there should be some type of oxymoron there).

All in all, Kick&Nass have pretty much decided to leave me alone. They have this exaggerated reflex phenomenon when they are around me - actually, they were probably infected by me as it's part of the diagnosis of PTSD. If that doesn't get someone's attitude ramped up, I'm not trying hard enough.

Awesome... or as the infamously perky Jo-Dee would say: "Isnt that precious"
I relate to the "get up get dressed we're going routine!'
By the way, the "I'll give it six weeks deal".... not a bad thing. Always have an exit strategy! For example, it keeps uninvited guests who pop in unexpectedly on the short leash (a must for those of us living near the beach, I assure you)

A literal foot in the but by She(WMBO):
Saturday 19 April 2008.
6:30 AM

Get up. Get dressed. We're going to Weight Watchers.
We're not going to Weight Watchers. We don't belong.
I signed us up online last night. Get up Get dressed.
We don't know when or where the meeting is.
There is one at 7:00 on Mellor Ave. We can walk. Get up Get dressed.
Look, I tried it a couple of years ago. It doesn't work I lost 5 pounds in six months.
You didn't work the program. I will meet you outside. Get up Get dressed.

You don't have to hit me over the head with a sledgehammer. I got up. I got dressed. We were sitting in the meeting, me scowling, smirking, arms folded and the leader Jody (doesn't she sound all perky already, Jo-Dee!) asked in her perky little voice -- any none scale victories to share?
Over on the right side of the room Sue (I knew her namme was Sue because she was wearing a name tag that said so) raised her hand: I'm within 10 pounds of my goal and I'm going to run my first 5k next week.
(Half under my breath, half not): Psssh That'll be the day.

On the way home I told She(WMBO): Look, I give it six weeks to fail And don't expect me to run anywhere.
Give it eight weeks, I bought Monthly Passes. And I don't want you to run anywhere, you'll have a heart attack and die.

I gave it eight honest weeks. Then I gave it 70 more weeks and I lost 90 pounds. And I run half marathons.

Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and suddenly you will be doing the impossible -- St Francis of Assisi

My Nass has had a lot of help recently. The crochety old father who gripes and is passive aggressive when I hit the gym, who brought chips into the house because he knows I like them.... well duh...and chocolate because women need it at that time of the month and I am being bitchy so it must be that time of the month. [Man, I never should have moved him into my house...well except for the triple bypass, congestive heart failure thing and him living two hours away from me, in the bush with no phone...oh yeah...THAT'S why I moved him into my house!].

Then the stroke that put him into personal care and me into overtime trying to make it all comfortable.... That's how I moved to 120 from 86 kg in 3 years!

HOWEVER...that was then, this is now...and I have scheduled my two jobs, my weekly [no longer daily] visit to the home, and the best Y in Winnipeg [eye candy galore!] to give me time to hit the gym three time a week... and instead of thinking...I will be doing...tomorrow...not in an ambiguous way, but concretely.....new month, new routine...same goal...get healthier and happier....

I am already kick Nass hot and confident....;-}

Don't have much time for Nass. My youngest son was a Ranger, it takes a lot of guts to make it, I wish him well.

I'm with DAWNO64. I was the Cool Mom when my kids were little and somehow started morphing into the Fat Mom. When they hit their teens & high school I decided I was done with Fat Mom and wanted to be the Hot Mom. Plus I wanted to rub the psycho ex-h's nose in it as he was turning into the Fat Dad. He's still the Fat Dad, now I'm the Hot (N)Ass Kickin' Mom

Kickin' Nass, takin' names has been my journey so far.

Although Nass does sound kind of cool to invite for a weekend stay every so often.

Nass is kinda like Santa - he's everywhere, telling you that cheesy fries are actually healthy because they have dairy products. He tells you that, since you started eating those chips, you might as well finish the whole bag so they won't get stale, and reminds you not to waste food - finish that entire pot of pasta so it doesn't get thrown out! He convinces you that if the sun isn't up, it's not time to get out of bed, and that you must keep up with ALL the television shows so you're informed when others discuss them.

Nass is awesome. He lets me sleep in when its time to hit the weights and loads baked potatoes with the most delicious crap (bacon, sour cream, cheese...you name it). When I want to jog, he puts a rerun of Gilligans Island on (Goodness forbid we miss that). He loves Buffalo wings with blu cheese dressing. None of us WANT to kick Nass. BUT...

Great post, Love the Nass. Unfortunatly I am still lazy. I want the weight gone but I don't want to exercise much. Maybe if I see a being on my shoulder I can get creeped out enough to do something. I'll get back to you on that one

Thanks. But seriously, what IS it with the 40s that make us fat? Friggin genetics, or what? 'cuz I used to be seriously underweight and would like to know how to patent that to be able to sell it now.

Female perspective - I was THE FAT MOM at my son's graduation. Really???? WTF? I used to be THE HOT MOM!! There was no way I was gonna roll over and play dead on this one! If I don't like who I am, there's no magic fairy that's gonna come along and fix it all. So....I started "Kickin Nass" myself!!

Todays topic is aimed at attitude. If you’re going to post a reply involving stuffed teddy’s (well Lingerie is allowed…but I digress: no Teddy Bear crap) or Kleenex nose wipe stories..get the hell out. I want an over the top, attitude, in your face “this is what is going to get me over that wall” kinda story.
Here’s the deal. At age 40, I was a martial arts black belt tournament fighting fit instructor, and some time over the past couple of years I lost my way. We sold the Tae Kwon Do school (which was doing really well), I stopped working out and gave the EXCUSE of sore knees , asthma, and lots of work Blah Blah Blah. Now I’m 50 and can’t run a mile?!! REALLY?
“Excuses are the skin of a reason stuffed with a lie. People good at excuses are rarely good at anything else.”
My son is 17 and at the beginning of the summer somehow got the idea that when he graduates High School he wants to join the Army and jump out of perfectly good airplanes. So he starts Kickin Nass (Nass is the name we give to the guy who sits on our shoulder and encourages us to play world of warcraft, eat nachos, drink beer, and sit on our butt day in and out, which is FANTASTIC for a day or two, but after a while… Nass needs to go!). My son studied and retook the ASVABS (that’s a military test) and scored off the hook high. He’s guaranteed an Army Ranger billet (that means he gets to try and be an Army Ranger). He’s lost 25 pounds, rucks 8 miles on the weekends with an 80 pound pack, is a prop on the rugby team, and is a great guy to be around (MOST of the time… He is still 17).
I will NOT allow my amazing punk ass son to kick Nass off his shoulder while the fiend is perched on mine…so on October 5 I began my journey. No particular reason for the day, that just happened to be when I said I’ve had enough of this crap and gave Nass the boot.
On the Day I kicked Nass…I hung up a pair of jeans in my closet that would not button. This morning I put them on. They be snug, but darned if they don’t fit! I’ve got a long way to go…but you know what…I’m going to get there.
So tell me ya’ll… what inspired (or might inspire) you to kick nass and take aim? Post it. NO sissies! I want to be motivated!
