You're so vain.... I bet you think this blog is about you...
Wednesday, July 06, 2011
Okay, so I say this all knowing that it might be a tad shallow or vain, but in the interest of full honesty and utter humanity, I have to ask... How many pounds and/or inches does it take before someone actually NOTICES my hard work?!
I can't even tell you (nor do I probably have to) the longings I've had while occasionally standing in line @ Starbucks waiting to order my skinny latte while gazing upon the delectable pastries that are displayed in the most perfectly appetizing case lighting. I'm thankfully losing track of how many offers to eat lunch downtown I have graciously declined, opting instead for my caloric-ly safe edamame pouches. I have swam, punched, and Zumba'd my ever-loving butt off for a full two months. And while I TOTALLY celebrate the pounds lost and my latest set of measurements, I still can't help but yearn for a smidge of recognition. Just that in-passing, "Hmm... Have you lost weight??" Heck, I would like to notice it more myself!! LOL, so far the only thing that seems different is that the butt of my jeans sag and how annoying I find that to be!
All in all, I feel good. I don't regret a single choice - be it telling that cheese danish that it can't have me, feeling good that I won't be going into a post-lunch food coma, or racking up a ton of Just Dance sweat points (and some sweet new dance moves). At the end of the day, I know that's what counts and that's why I keep going. And maybe........... THAT is what will knock people's friggin socks off!
