Hint, Hint

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

A few things recently have hinted to the fact that I've fallen off the weight-loss wagon in recent months. I knew it, but was busy worrying about "other things." (Which are so much more fun).

In December I was laid off from my job and started a business at home. It's going well but it's all consuming and anxiety-ridden launching new business into the world. I've always been one to ease anxiety wtih food. I think that I cannot tell the difference between anxiety and hunger.

It all started last week when my 10 year old daughter (who's just two inches shorter than I) needed a pair of slacks for a school play. I went to the garage and pulled down my "you're dreamin' girl" wardrobe bin and found her a pair of slacks. She was going through all the cute clothes in the bin and said "Wow mom, you musta been hot!"


A few days later, I was shoppping for a family friendly gym, and at one gym, the manager started telling me all about the perils of baby-weight and what I need to do to get rid of it and recover.

Here's the rub. My kids are 10 and 3, and they're both ADOPETD. I have no baby-weight. I gained all my weight the old fashioned way. Broken diet and exercise lifestyles.

I've recommitted myself to modeling a healthy lifestyle. This has been further rubbed into me by the fact that I wanted to teach the kids to swim, and my biggest swimsuit is still four sizes too small, so I had to go buy another one.

My fear of the children drowning is outweighing my fear of bathing suits.

Without fear, now, I know that I will succeed.

    You go girl! Way to get back on the wagon (i've been there too). I must admit that when i go out i'm always afraid that someone from high school is going to see me and be like, "oh wow, when are you due?" Just hang in there and keep it up!
