Tempus Fugit (That's Latin, Y'all)


???.? lbs

I actually had some scale phobias this morning.  I will overcome tomorrow.

I've made a workout date with BB tonight.  None of us have been back to HHH class since May.  Actually, since I decided to start paying for the gym, I've pretty much stopped going.  Bye-Bye $40 a month! 

I do wish a lot of you folks were around in my REAL life.  I'm drawing on the support of a Skinny Athletic Girl (SAG) who has a freakin slammin hot body and a Blushing Bride (BB) who is 22 and still has a baby face.  This means she hasn't fully finished morphing into physical adulthood.  Neither of which understand a weight struggle like I've got.  Well, that's not to say that SAG doesn't work her ass off every night to look as hot as she does.  And BB and Her Beau do yoga twice a week now.  I have seen her change over the past few months. Her face has started thinning out and the adorable little baby cheeks are vanishing just a bit.  [Sadface.]

I am beginning to feel the weight of everything I need to do all at once.  That's a lot of weight.  I want to see 150.  I'm not pushing for these 140s and 130s goals I see with other people.  I'm not ready for that yet.  Hell, I'll be glad with a 165 on the scale.  But shit.  One Hundred Twelve Pounds To Lose.  That's a lot of weight.    And that's based on an out-of-date-weight. 

I'm not whining or whimpering, I'm documenting.  I could choose not to write today.  Or even until I decide to jump back on board, (which technically I am doing tonight because of my workout date). And, in case you haven't figured it out, that's what happened between the end of October to the beginning of March.  I simply tuned out. 

Well, I'm not doing that this time.  I don't care if there are a few "gray days" in my blog world, I'm making myself stay connected.  If I don't, if I drop everything, then 6 months from now I'll just be starting over again.  And I'll be no happier for it.

Hmm.  I'm ending the day on a happy note for all of you.  There's this girl who started about 7 months ago on her new healthy lifestyle.  I'm sure you all know and love Julia @ Jewlia Goulia.  Well, her Monday has greeted her with a 100.1 LB LOSS!  Go congratulate her.  She TOTALLY deserves it!  She's my hero of the day.  Tell her to go back and buy that dress, too.

So.  That got me thinking.

What will seven months get you?

I'm hoping seven months nets me my goal. That'll be... February. Theoretically my "deadline" is November 4th, but that's utterly arbitrary and considering my personal situation (current weight and goal weight), it might not be doable.

I'm working on coming to grips with that.

I don't want you to tune out. For the obvious health reasons, sure... but also because this weight loss blogging world is missing a bit of snap and spark without you. You seriously crack me up, chica -- stick around!!

You can do this. You'll find your way. Some of us meander around a bit longer than others. I've been working on a seventy pound weight loss since August of 2006 with partial success thus far (50 pounds down so far, give or take depending on the day/ week/ month)... so seriously, there is ROOM for going about this in a somewhat circuitous manner.

I know whereof I speak. Clearly ;)

I just started reading your blog and I think that you are more of an inspiration then you know.

I love your humor and I also think that it doesn't really matter HOW much you have to lose, what matters is that you are trying :) That's what I tell myself each time I step on the scale and see a number I think should be way lower :)

Anyways, I wanted to let you know that not everyone has the 130 lb goals, hell I would be stoked to hit 200!

Keep on blogging!

I sure hope that I reach my goal weight in seven months! That would rock.

I'd love to see myself in a job that I LIKE in seven month's time.

But as for 112 pounds a lot to lose? Yes it is. But think of it this've already lost a fifth of the weight you need to lose! You're almost a quarter of the way to your goal! If you can make it this far, you can keep going. You can do it!
