All of these things I have accepted as gracefully as possible.In many ways, I was actually happy to see each sign. I can’t tell you the amount of times I’d be sitting with my step son and told “You guys make such a cute couple!”I would take it as a compliment, him, not so much.
Along with this “coming of age”, I have lost my once perfect metabolism.Gone are the days when I could eat cookies for breakfast, ice-cream for lunch, munch on Doritos from dusk till dawn and still not gain a pound.Nope, instead, I’m getting saddle bags, and a tummy pooch.I feel the weight even in my face and I hate it.Most of my friends would look at me and think I’m exaggerating, but the truth is, I can no longer wear many of my pants because…gulp, I can’t fit into them!
So – I decided to be proactive; I went out and bought myself that Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD.I also joined a fabulous group of ladies for support – Hubby is supportive, don’t get me wrong, but he’s also nice and won’t give me heck for “skipping” a workout.These ladies are in it to lose it!They will kick my butt into shape (no pun intended there).
I will proceed to (try) to have daily entries as to where I’m going with this whole thing….try…It is my goal to have a body like hers!
