Feeling blah.

I'm feeling proud of myself and miserable at the same time. It's a challenge, but I seem to be managing. I'm proud of me because I just went and tossed out my secret, hidden, emergency stash of chocolate. Time to get serious with the dieting. I'm miserable because I look and feel like a fat cow. 'Nuff said.
I remember when I wore tight jeans to the bar. I wasn't that "hot", but I didn't worry about looking like a very round fool. Nowadays, my clothes choices are more about comfort and disguise. I have mom clothes. Mom hair. I am in bed at 10:30, which is a mom bedtime. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, since I am, after all, a mom. I just hate looking like one!

Listen, dope. Think how beautiful a mind you have.

Been there, done that babe. So get out of the rut. A client of mine has had wonderful results following the Oprah diet and walking a km or so a day. On the diet you don't eat anything white. (I think it's a racist diet!) She's lost 10 lbs/month since October. Good luck! I know you can do it.

Well, on the up side - you beat me on the bedtime thing -- I'm usually fast asleep anywhere from 9:30 or so. I know, it's a shame, but I am just sooooo tired. I'm really a morning person, and can go like hell at 5:00 a.m!

I'm right there with ya on the Mom life - in bed by 10:00 and trying hard to avoid the box of Coca Cola in my pantry and all of the candy in my bread box (such clever places to hide them, not)!

I am SO right there with you. You have NO idea. And to think--at one time I was thin (well, thinner... I was never thin).

Anyway, I'll be right there with you... as soon as I throw away my secret stash of sweets. :-)

Start with walking or yoga and go from there.

They will both give you confidence.

you can do it.

And you have to think of yourself as beautiful now. You are and it will help you.

10.30? burning the midnight oil, as far as i'm concerned.

i've lost some tonnage playing hockey (25lbs), but i still suffer from dunlap syndrome. as in 'my stomach dunlapped over my belt.' it's a living hell, but 70% are living in it. besides, i like the ladies that put a little stress on their seams. growl.

Secret eating is the devil's work. We all need to stop doing it.

As for the other, well, you are in good company (good company with a scrunchy in her hair and comfortable elastic waisted sweatpants on... sigh)
