Yes, we all know that dieting and exercising is UGLY. There is nothing pretty about it. Except if the results are good! Then it is BEAUTIFUL!
I have struggled with my weight off and on most of my adult life. I have never been extremely overweight, but in the last 18 months I have gained 20 pounds and it seems the harder I try to lose weight the more I gain. UGH!
I am my own worst enemy though. I think I told you in an earlier post I LOVE TO EAT (and drink)! I don't drink (alcoholic beverages) every day, usually just on the weekend. Even then I don't drink a lot unless I am with certain friends or we go to my favorite mexican restaurant. Actually two drinks for me is a lot! But it's the calorie count in those drinks and the amount of food that I eat while I am drinking. Who can say no to a yummy frozen margarita, on a hot summer evening, on the patio at El Toro's? Not me!
I have started Weight Watchers again and I am counting my points and writing everything down. I have gone over a few times since I joined. Some of my co-workers love to go out to eat EVERY DAY for lunch! I can't resist when they go to my favorite places. Ok. I'll admit it. Almost every place is my favorite place. There are only a few places that I really don't like to go too. All of that is going to change though. No more going out for lunch. I am bringing my lunch and I am going to eat it! If they go out, then they go out. I can't stop them, but I can stop me! I know I have said that before too, but I really mean it this time!
I refuse to buy clothes in a bigger size. I have a closet full of clothes that are a little snug (ok, a lot snug). Dieting and exercising might be UGLY, but a fat girl in clothes that are too tight is even UGLIER!
V will be for VICTORY, because I intend to lose weight by time I write my next post!
Never, never, never, never give up.
