No More Maintenance, I Want to Lose Again
Thursday, April 28, 2011
Yep. I declared it. I don't want to focus on maintenance any longer. I am ready for the next chapter of this weightloss saga. Sometimes the universe creates the perfect storm to give you a kick in the a$$. Did something terrible happen? No. Just alot of little random things that made me say "okay, it's time".
So where have I been? Happily existing with my boyfriend of course, living life, giving him occasional hell for being dumb with girls, working hard and playing harder. In fact, I am meeting his family for the first time this weekend. Yikes. Yes, I am fantabulous-- smart, likeable, fun, witty. But, I have never really had to have that experience. I met my exes parents by accident or not at all. I never had to introduce mine because they have passed on. Its a whole new world for me. But his mom knows me on paper at least, since she had been kinda helping me with the job thing. (Yet another teacher laid off for next year. Shocker.) Apparently, the 'rents arranged to drive down from up north after they learned his sister and bro in law were flying out for some event and meeting up with us. Mom announced they were coming down too and flat out asked G. if she could meet me. I told him I would liek to meet them, but whatever he felt about it was fine. You see, we had kind of planned a thing in June that involved going up there, so in his head, it was further up the line. After a day or so, he just kind of assumed I was going and didn't ask about it further. But its not just one meeting. Oh no, its a whole weekend of things. Theres some weird celebration of the royal wedding since the brother in law is british and a dinner and brunch. This for the girl who doesn'have any family functions anymore and hasn't really for many years. Its great, but its alot.
So lets recap, happily moving forward in a relationship, but slightly freaked out. Lost my job, so applying like mad and looking around for new opportunities. Oh and add in those darn Cadbury eggs that are only there once a year. (bock, bock, bock) Basically I just said, 'I recognize the signs of what might be possible and I say heck no to any back slide . Time to get yourself in check, time to start losing and feel fantastic about yourself and your position in life. You have a fantastic boyfriend, great friends, and you need to take every opportunity to stay positive.' And we all know how happy it makes us all to lose even a pound. lol I need to lose it, I need a boost.
G. goes away mid May to work on a movie for 6 weeks. Even though I have already begun the 'check yourself before you wreck yourself' chapter, I know I can use that time to occupy myself with me. I am going to miss that man like mad at times, so no better moments than those to get on a bike or dance. We are supposed to meet up around week 4, so who knows, he may have a super hot and toned girlfriend then. ;) He'll never complain, and neither will I.
TTFN sparklers. I am busy kicking all the little carb/sugar cravings out at the moment. Gets easier with each day. ;)
