Dear 100 lb. Club,
Did you notice my ticker? That’s right I have less than one hundred pounds to lose. I have lost thirty pounds so far, and for that, I thank you. Sure, it took me over a year, but let’s be honest, I wasn’t always there for you. I would go away for months at a time, yet you always stayed right here for me to return to when the scale was cruel and my bum was flabby.
100 lb. Club, you and I both know I am not ready for Featherweight yet; I still have a long ways to go, but there will come a day when I will have shed this extra baggage and be looking to move on. I will think, I don’t need you, I only have a few more pounds to lose
. I will think, look how far I have come, I can eat that chocolate heart
. But you will remind me, 100 lb. Club, you will be there to say, ‘everyday is a mission
’ and also ‘don’t sweat the pound of chocolates, get back on the horse
So, 100 lb. Club, on this day of days, or a little early, ‘cause I am going to be busy tomorrow – exercising*
, I say! –
Happy Valentine’s Day!
May you get lots of beautiful flowers and very, very little chocolate!
.. no not that
kind of exercising...
