I don't wanna'! I don't wanna'! I WANT TO HAVE MY my "cake" AND still lose weight!

Growl. What a crushing blow! I know, I know, I know. (But I don't like it!). I want to put my fingers in my ears, cover my eyes and make it all go away. I don't wanna' change things up. (Is that Dr. Phil I hear in the background asking, "So how's that working for you?"). I don't like being told what to do. I don't like rules and portion sizes and feelings of deprivation. I don't want to examine myself from the inside out. I don't like to be weighed. I don't like people knowing that I am trying to lose weight. (I hate it that Jenny Craig still calls and leaves voice messages...inevitably when we have a house full of guests!) . I don't like to shave my legs (I know but I really don't). I don't like to shop. I don't like cooking (unless I am entertaining or making a big pot of soup) nor cleaning nor working in the yard. It is boring and redundant. I like ethnic foods. I like exercise. I like my cat. I like to be in the mountains hiking or cross country skiing or snowshoeing. I like to travel. But I am stuck living under gray, cloudy skies for a few more years (until my youngest graduates from high school). But dang it, I don't wanna', I don't wanna', I don't wanna'! So how do I get over it? Oh please be gentle dear reader (remember that I don't like being told what to do).I know that you know that I know what I need to do....I just don't wanna'.
