Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
Monday, January 31, 2011
I've tried this so many times before.
Not necessarily this website, but different variations on the same idea - fad diets, healthy eating, exercise. None of it lasted too long.
This time is going to be different.
The last time I tried to lose weight and actually succeeded, i had a goal: look good, or at least semi-decent, in my prom dress. So, I stuck to a diet, and took up running to try and lose as much weight as I could. Prom rolled around and I looked fabulous. I was still not very skinny, but I had lot enough weight that the night was full of compliments and slow dances with boys.
Then, prom was over, the summer started, and all the junk food came back.
It's not like I didn't try to keep it up. It's just that I had no motivation, no goal anymore. So I gained all the weight I lost back. And I kept gaining, and gaining, and gaining.
This time, it's all going to change. Not only do I have a goal in mind (I'm going to Disney World/Universal/Florida in June-July, and do NOT want to be embarrassed in my swimsuit) but I've started feeling effects of all this weight. My back hurts constantly, due to my gain.
This time, I will beat this.
I will get back the skinny frame I had until high school.
I will get healthier and look good.
I will look good in a bathing suit. Eventually, a bikini.
But most of all, I'll fit into the seats at Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, and have fun on it with the rest of my family.
