In the immortal words of our US VP...
THIS IS A BIG F-***-ING DEAL. This isn't funny. And neither is the other, but that's a whole 'nother blog.
Ok, yes. Right now, I am weighing at night. After I eat. And drink. Lots and lots of decaffeinated tea sweetened with Splenda. I am getting up in the middle of the night to take a little bathroom break. I think this is better for my kidneys, but I could be wrong. Eh, 12 hours of gravity may be adding an additional 3.3 lbs. Dear lord I hope it's not real weight. I'm also not going to state the obvious and say this is the MOST I've ever weighed and never would I have imagined I could weigh this much. No wonder my knees ache when I walk up The Steps.
I watched The Biggest Loser tonight. I watched this group bike a marathon. By the 26.2 mile marker, I was practically jumping up and down on Oprah's couch. I wanted to jump on a bike and do the same thing. And then I got on the scale. Holy crap.
I watched Kirstie Alley's Big Life last night. It was really good. She's funny. She wonders, though, why everyone focuses on her weight. I personally think it's because she's made a big deal about her weight. I am proud of her because she's really doing something. She's hired a personal trainer and has a "chubby buddy" who works out with her. I think he gets paid to do it, though.
I am also all about this new Jamie Oliver Food Revolution thing. I think health should start young. And with Parents too. And with schools.
There's a bunch of stuff all over the place right now that is all about being right. Doing right. Eating and living right. I am excited about it and I hope it helps. I need to get back down to when I thought I was just fat.
