You know that person.. you know that one who is dieting and is successful so wants to share their joy with everyone. I realized last night, OMG that is me. I talk about Weight Watchers, Hungry girl, Kashi (btw Kashi.. owe you a BIG apology.. really thought your food was gonna taste like tree bark and i am in LOVE!), and definitely Wii EA Sports Active.
But here is the thing, I can't help it. I have been the butt of jokes for a long time... some from my family, some from friends, and some from strangers. A friend of mine (who has been so amazing through this, and probably does not even realize how much I appreciate it--Crazed Mama I am talking about you!) posted on her blog this week here that she wants to be happy with her weight. The truth of the matter is, I have never been happy with my weight. I have always been comfortable in my own skin on the outside, I used to tell everyone I am vertically challenged and horizontally blessed" (short and fat)
Now I am on this Weight Watchers thing, and I can see that at some point I will hit my goal weight. (I am aiming for 160-175) I enjoy working out, I am enjoying that I can wake up in the morning and get out of bed without gasping for air! I can walk outside with the kids.. I walked from the car to the beach this weekend without losing my breath! I feel a difference in me. I said 2010 was going to be different and I have stuck to that.. and (TMI warning WARNING WARNING.. ok you have been warned) even my marriage has been "helped" if you will. (hey I warned you!!)
So yes I am that annoying dieter, and I do apologize but please know that if you started this at the weight I started this, and have watched the pounds leave you would be excited to. So, can we still be friends?
