What happened to me????

I have seriously let my body go from semi toned to all out squishy. Not as in “I shall call it squishy, it shall be mine, it shall be my squishy from Nemo, the jelly fish are actually cute in that movie.  I am groody to say the least..

Now before anyone jumps on the you have nothing to worry about boat let me be frank. I am 119 pounds and yes I know that’s not a lot to some but to me who when healthily toned weighs 102ish that’s a lot. That’s 17 pounds of gross and unfortunately most of that sits around my midsection and love handles.

Excuse me for a minute while I hyperventilate…..

All of the sudden going into my 32nd year what I eat is staying.  Why does this have to happen so suddenly?  It should be a gradual process ya know.  I am begging to see myself as a sausage coming out of my casing in certain areas. Go ahead and barf it’s gross I know.  So out need to go the coke and little debbies and in come the greens and water. What is this huge nasty joke mother nature decided to throw my way out of the blue.

In the land of tan and bikinis you don’t want to be the little round roly poly in the beach.  Sigh.

I think I need a Little Debbie and Coke Classic to comfort myself *snicker*.  BUT in all seriousness, it’s time to get rid of some baggage.  The only love I want on my body is my chinese symbol for it I already have tattooed under my belly button (little known fact 54930753409 of me).  So who wants to start with me and get fit!  It’s always better to do it as a team you know.

Well at least the billion miles I walked during the Diamond Dash today (that sordid tale coming in another post) should count for something in the step in the right direction category right?!

    Does it count as starting with you if I’m already five weeks into it? 🙂

    Well I started January 1st and have lost 17.2 pounds so far, but my healthy weight is 145 so I still have 16.8 pounds to go… jump on my bandwagon! We have the same amount of poundage to rid ourselves of! haha 🙂

    Hey Toni,

    Love the hair in the pic. I’ll join you but I have move years of added squishiness to be rid of and with the chocolate bunny thudding its way towards us there is more cause for concern over potential squishiness.

    I hear you.. I am about the same as far as age and weight change. I can’t get away with anything any more! Not only that, but I was ‘sort of’ getting in shape with my Wii Fit, and I didn’t have a chance to work out for a few weeks and by the time I got back to it, I was huffing and puffing..
