Trim The Fat Thursday
2 weeks ago an IRL friend Angie from Angie's Spot started her weight loss quest. Now I told her that I would join her on this. My nephew is getting married Aug. 1 down in Ga. and I would love to be 15 lbs lighter. I have seen no one from my family since C was 18 mos old, he is 7. No one has seen our daughter. I wish I did not feel that I have something to prove but when it comes to my family, that's the way it is. My mother "disowned" me almost 6 yrs ago and died the year after that. My father also chose to basically act like I did not exist, I'm a big girl I can handle that, but they also chose to ignore my children. My mother died before the Girl was born and my father has never acknowledged her. The kids used to get a Christmas card from him, but not lately. I have 1 brother and 1 nephew and a sister-in-law who I have always been close to(my SIL, not my brother). They had one more son who died when he was 4 from complications from chicken pox. My SIL and I talk a few times a year and have always kept up. She is from Vermont and I have had the pleasure of staying with her family up there on vacation, yes prior to BD and the kids. Her Mom and her 2 brothers and 2 sisters are coming down for the wedding and I am so excited to see them!!! My nephew just graduated from UGA and will start med school at Mercer in Macon on Aug 10th, yeah right after the honeymoon! Makes me thankful I'll 16yrs into my marriage and not starting out! Now how I got off on this tangent I do not know but, I want to lose weight. I was going to post about this LAST Thursday but the shingles got their grip on me instead! So to start off my "Trim The Fat" program I weigh, and I know this to be a fact since I've seen so many docs lately, 172 lbs which doesn't look great on a 5ft 2in frame. I want to lose 15 by Aug 1 and will do this by continuing to cook and eat right. Luckily Big Daddy is also still on his weight reduction quest so the cooking lighter has already bee n implemented. In fact I weighed 180 in Jan. And once my pain is reduced to a manageable level, I do plan to take my "10 min Solution Pilates" DVD out of the wrapper. Then I plan to put it in the DVD player soon after!! I'm hoping for 2 lbs off by next Thursday. My long term goal is to get down to 140. I'm comfortable with myself at that weight and I can wear a size 10 then! I'm really going to try for that by November 12th!! And I must pass this along, I read an article a couple of months ago that when you turn 50, if you are heavier you start to look younger then your age and people who are thinner tend to look older. Have I said how excited I am to be turning 50 next year, LOL!!! I guess I've bored y'all enough, on with the day!! Have a great one!
