I'm still around...

Friday, July 26, 2013

I went on and did it. Deep down I knew it was going to happen because I've been a slacker to the umpteenth degree. I gained every ounce of the weight I lost back in 2006. took 7 years to gain 40 pounds because I toggled between 170 and 185 for a good part of the last few years, but as of Tuesday morning, I am officially 195 pounds. Yep.

To be totally honest with you, I really didn't give a sh*t. I felt like, it is what it is, I'm going to live my life anyway. I debated (again) shutting down this Spark thang. So what, if I have a little indigestion every now and again and who gives a damn if my "normal" underwear size left things a little too snug (that's when I really knew something was up) . I was just going to buy some bigger drawers and that would be that.

Well, unbeknownst to me, my homieloverfriend (who was in town last week) was sick and tired of me saying the same thing over and over. "I really need to lose this weight." "Ooh I shouldn't of ate that." blah. blah. blah. So.. while I was working (I work at home now) he jumped up, grabbed the keys to my car and left. Came back and said, "When you get off, you need to go have your finger scanned." For my new 24-Hour Fitness membership. Say what now?!

There it is. I am obligated to go. I would feel horrible for wasting his money, so I might as well get serious. My heart is not in it yet.. but I'm compelled to go. I will let that be the driving force everyday...
