Remember This?

"By 2/1/12, I will be down to at least 229 by working out 5 or more times a week and eating at least 7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day."

Posted on 11/19/11.

Ahem.  Yeah.  About that. . ..

I didn't quite make the progress I hoped.

In November, I squeaked by losing one more lb to a new low of 243.  Yahfuckinghoo.

I got on the scale today, and. . . .

I gained 2 lbs. 

I should say I gained AT LEAST 2 lbs, because I stepped on the scale after Vic's 2012 Inaugural Bootcamp which made me sweat the equivalent of an Olympic swimming pool.

I'm not surprised. 

I feel like I have rug burn on my ass from December's backslide. 

I finished the year at a party, where I enjoyed smokies wrapped in biscuit dough, creamy potatoes spiked with bacon and cheese, caramel popcorn, a few more smokies, a bite of salad and a cupcake. 

The night before, we went to Cracker Barrel for dinner. .  .pancakes, eggs, pancakes and a bite of chicken fried steak.

It's not that gaining 2 lbs over Christmas and new years is a big deal.  It's not.

It's just that I have spent the last year and a half doing good things for my health, and then rushing to the computer so I can brag about it like a 2 year old who made her first poo-poo in the potty.

I swear I tried to think of a better analogy.

Anyway, you guys are all VERY supportive of me, so I feel I need to be accountable to you.

New Year, new start.

I will not be derailed by 2 stupid lbs.

Remember that I said that.  'Kay?


  1. i am reading that as february 1? you have a month left, no problem! rug burns during sex would be more fun i think! seriously, i applaud your getting healthy and if the weight comes off then that is a bonus, but as hard as you work you deserve a break sometimes! love and hugs!

  2. Don't be too disappointed. My Hubs recently started eating a LOT better to control his health issues (after many years of ignoring them). He slid off track too over the Holidays and is trying very hard to get back into the routine of taking care of himself.
    I am wishing you BOTH luck.

  3. Two lbs schmoo lbs!

    I want you to know that while typing and reading "lbs" I keep saying "libs."

    I have faith in youuuuuu!


I LOVE to read comments. Seriously. I check them every day. Insecure? Maybe.
