Got my Motivation!

Okay, so I think I found my motivation for this whole weight loss thing. I'm fat. Yep I said it. I have the giggles everywhere imaginable. As I sit here at the computer sometimes, I tend to shake my leg. Well, while I'm shaking, it feels like I'm sitting in one of those vibrating massage chairs you see in the mall where you put in $1.50 in quarters for a 3 minute ride. Yep, that's what it feels like. And when I stop shaking my leg, it takes a few seconds for the giggling to go away!

Okay, so that's not my motivation. Obviously that was not enough. And Miss Missy's comment about me looking like I had a baby in my stomach when I was laying on the bed one night, nope that wasn't enough either.

AND the fact that NONE of my jeans seem to fit anymore and after squeezing into them anyway, I find myself having to either suffer a stomach ache or keep that top button undone, especially if I decide to eat so much as a saltine, yeah, that wasn't enough motivation either!

And it wasn't enough that I now have to actually move my stomach out of the way so that I can see when I'm trying to shave my bikini line. Uh uuhh!

Well, my motivation is that all my friends seem to be motivated enough to workout. They stick to some kind of SOMETHING where they are finding themselves become smaller and smaller. They are getting into their old clothes again and having to go shopping for new ones. They are shedding pounds and talking about how they are cutting back on eating and how great it is to have lost 3 or 4 pounds this week and BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!

Yeah I get to hear about how many sizes they've lost and oh, the agony of having to buy new clothes. How they are now able to zip up a fabulous size (lower than what I wear, of course) and how they are so close to they're target weight!


So, I'm sitting here, with my pleasantly plump self, enjoying yet another brownie,
telling each and every one of them that what they are doing is great and that they need do stay motivated and KEEP IT UP! And (while it is so true) that I am happy for them and excited that they are all doing so well (And that I'm officially that fat girl outta all my friends)...... And oh yeah, I'll start tomorrow!

Yesterday, TOMORROW finally came. Yesterday I had my epiphany that the only way to lose anything was to put down those extra delicious chocolate goodness brown squares and pick up a workout DVD. Not just for one or two days like my committed days before. Oh NO! I mean I really REALLY want this now because all those dedicated chicks are leaving me and my brownies in their dust!

So why am I still sitting here talking to you guys??? My treadmill is calling me!

I could've wrote this. I sooo need to lose 40-50lbs. I know exactly what my problem is: I love to eat, and I am lazy. There I admitted it. My name is Mrs.D and I am fat.

You can do it! Don't give up and you don't have to give up the brownies... just don't eat as many as often.

Hahaha. I wanna hop on the Operation Skinny Bitch train so scoot over. Congrats on getting motivated, if the folks around me keep getting smaller I might just get motivated right with you. Until then I'm cheerin' you on...
