I Don't Want Her, You Can Have Her, She's Too Fat For Me....
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fatest of them all???
About a month ago, while strolling through a department store with the princess, I caught my profile in one of the many mirrors. I literally took 2 steps back to make sure it was 'my' bodily profile I was viewing. Sadly, it was. I stood there for several minutes looking at myself. (The other shoppers must have thought I was some nut case) However, in viewing myself, I noticed things I never noticed when I looked in the mirror at home. That ghastly protruding belly pouch, the flabbiness of my arms, and we won't even mention what I thought of my ass. In all my life, I have never been more thoroughly disgusted with my body....that mirror changed it all.
Upon my arrival at home, I immediately went into the bathroom, and again, looked in the mirror. And again, I was horrified to think that I let myself get to this point. I love who I am..however, I didn't love how I looked. I told myself that this was not a time for excuses, as I've been using them for way too long. It was time to take action.
Yes, yes, I'm going to use those two unimaginable words...DIET and EXERCISE. I want to be healthy...I want to live a long life...see my children grow and have babies of their own..blahblahblah... But first I had to ask myself who I was doing this for...Do I want to lose this weight for me...or do I want to do it for what others will think? I pondered that question over a bag of Mr.G's potato chips...and realized I need to do this for me.
So I have embarked on my OWN diet regimin. Number one...NO FAST FOOD! I adore McDonald's big mac's..and the fries...well if you've had them, you know what I'm talkin' about! Number two..lay off the Diet Coke. Now this is probably the most difficult due to the fact that I'm a Diet-Coke-a-holic. But I'm doing well...down to about 2-3/day. Number 3...red meat only one to two times per week. I can handle that. More fish and chicken..and not fried, but grilled or broiled. I've limited my snacking to popcorn and a few cheetos every now and again...and the key is to put them in a small bowl, not munch out of the bag.
I do treat myself once a week...to eat whatever I please...even that Big Mac if I want it. I've read that by doing this, you actually shock your metabolism to kick into high gear, thus more weight loss. Exercise? Well, that is not one of my favorite things to do. I'm not one to put on a video and dance around the family room, nor am I one to join a gym. So instead of that, I prefer my own exercise....SEX...lots and lots of SEX! And working in my gardens...and then more SEX! It does wonders for the mind and body.....and I'm proof of that.... 14 lbs lighter and counting!
