But, five years later, I weigh almost 20 lbs more, and I’m lucky if my hips will squeeze into a size 7. My stomach is definitely not flat, my thighs touch… the only thing I still have going for me is the boobs.
And, I don’t have a pregnancy to blame for it. Just a stupid case of mono when I was 21, that basically murdered my metabolism… And, well, it took me a little while to notice that I couldn’t eat fast food and still look great anymore.
I want to get in shape… I really do. And I feel like I’m trying, but not hard enough. The Get-Fit Challenge has been a bust. I haven’t lost any more weight since the second month. My only success is that I’ve maintained that 6 to 7 lbs weight loss, which I mean, is still something.
But, my October deadline is days away, and I’m still 12 lbs and 8.5 inches away… Just like I was in July… So absolutely no progress in the past 2 months (and a bit).
Getting to the gym has been difficult. The mornings are getting darker, and getting up at 6 a.m. is not my thing. But, I need to put more of an effort, or I’m never going to get anywhere with it.
So, I have a new goal… Well, same goal and new deadline.
I will give myself to the spring… Just before bathing suit season.
And I will up my determination…
Hopefully this time it works.
