We started talking about weight and dieting while hanging out at the pool. Talking about dieting while in your bathing suit is never a good idea. So I lied, hoping we would move on to another subject. I told her I'm totally OK with my weight right now. Because if I said I wasn't, and wanted to lose weight, I would feel like she would be counting my glasses of wine and calories I'm consuming.
The thing is, I'm not OK with my weight or what kind of shape my body is in. But I just don't feel like doing anything about it. I hate the way I look in pictures. I have no shape. My body has changed to a middle-aged mom figure. Blaaaaaaaaah. That bites. I know what needs to be done and I just don't have the energy. No, actually I just don't want to. That's even worse.
But that's about to change. I'm going to do something soon. Right after I finish this post, and the laundry, and cleaning the house.
I think I'll join Weight Watchers again. I don't need to lose that much. Probably 10 - 12 pounds. I've done it before. It used to work like a charm. So we'll see. So that will be the diet part - the easy part. Now I need to figure out the exercise part.
Here's my dilemma. We can't afford any kind of gym membership so that's out. And we live at the top of a hill which killed my knees that last time I decided to walk/jog for exercise. So I may actually have to drive to the bottom of the hill and walk/jog on the flat part and then drive myself home. That just sounds so lame. But look at my arse in this picture? I actually went out in public in these yoga pants. Holy moly cottage cheese buns. What was I thinking? I'm sorry to all of you at the dog park that had the unfortunate view of my backside. Ay caramba.
And then there's the fair. Here I am on the swing ride with everyone lined up behind me. Lookin' ok.
And this my friends is the worst picture - ever. Holy guacamole. I can't believe I'm even showing it to you. Of course my entire family has already seen it because Don EMAILED IT to everyone. Thanks honey. Oy. Oy. Oyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. (Insert HUUUUUUUUGE sigh here.)
It's time. In fact. I'll think I'll shut down the old computer and go for a walk.What do you do to keep in shape?
