Because the man I was dating and really cared about just broke up with me out of the total blue. Said he was feeling overwhelmed with school and his new job and it "just wasn't fair" to me to stay with me if he couldn't give me the attention I deserved. BS my friends! I think he has his eye on someone at his new job. Well, I am going to give myself a couple of months and burn off as much flab as I can and then make him eat his heart out at how much more sexy I have gotten! At this time, it is my number 1 motivator!!
