See that tropical picture?

Monday, November 16, 2009's come down to do it now. It wasn't that long ago that I felt good about my weight...but then I got divorced after 24 years, and had to go back to school full time to get a career. It took 4 busy stressful years to get my nursing degree, but finally finished in May 09. Unfortunately during this time I found less time to exercise, and had many more fast food meals...culminating in 20+ lbs, mostly in my belly. I mean c' does cellulite accumulate so fast?? I feel I'm at an age where putting on any extra lbs is sooo not good for my health, and believe me, I see what poor diet brings all the time in the hospital. So it's come down to I don't want to get rid of all the great clothes in my closet!!!! And see that tropical picture? That is where I want to be sometime in 2010 or a frickin bikini!!!!! emoticon

    OMG you sound so like me!! :) Just turned 50 and hate hate hate this popcorn that appeared under my skin (what is this stuff????). I used to be really really buff too! Now I have sooo little time to work out and I want to dump these 20 lbs. We're heading off to Jamaica with my sister's family in June '10 and she says "ditch the binkinis, get a one piece and act your age" (she says it lovingly). No way!! I'm gonna wow 'em on the beach -- and that IS acting my age!! :) :) We'll get there!!

    Sounds like you have had a lot to deal with in the past few years. And I hear you on how weight and cellulite can accumulate so not fair! :)

    But now is your time to take care of you and you are going to succeed - just keep picturing the beach and that bikini!

    I know what you mean about weight adding up fast. It can take weeks to loose a couple pounds and a day to gain it back. Stick with it. You're going to feel great strutin your stuff on the beach!

    You have enough will power and gumption to get a degree at this stage of you life, you have enough to battle a few pounds! I wish I had your determination!
