It's almost summer, and I'm thinking of where I want to be by NEXT summer.

So, this will be the last summer where I:

Weigh over 200 lbs

am too embarassed to wear shorts outside of my home

do not wear sleeveless shirts or sundresses

am embarassed to wear a bathing suit (but I do it anyway)

feel horrible in the hot weather

Anyone else have a list?

This will be the last summer where....

I stop telling myself how fat and lazy that I am, and start telling myself that I am beautiful, and on my way to Onederland!

This will be the last summer where...

I quit wearing shorts because I think others will be appauled by me. I will wear them, and wear them proudly.

This will be the last summer where...

I try to cover myself up in bundles of clothing, trying to hide all the flab. I will show a little more skin, and feel proud that I can start to do that.

This will be the last summer where...

I feel like I am going to die of heat stroke in the summer, and get out of breath walking a few blocks.

This will be the last summer where...I am fat! :)

I'm on my way Onederland!!!

I avoid the amusement parks b/c I can't fit into the cars comfortably on the roller coasters.

I want to reach 199 by Labor Day too! 23 pounds to go! I d idn't think about the eating ice cream in public, but that's definitely another one. I hardly ever eat ice cream in public..usually by low fat frozen yogurt and eat it at home.

take care,

Ben & Jerry's once wrote that people eat ice-cream in two differents ways:

Biters & Lickers.

Biters feel weird seductively licking their ice cream in public and would much rather take a bite of it.

I'm a licker. And I love ice cream, even in public.

This isn't summer related, but this is the last summer where I go grocery shopping and feel like people are sneaking looks into my cart. I'm proably being paranoid..but I always end up looking at what other people are buying while I'm stuck in line. I'm amazed at how much junk food skinny people buy! Things I didn't eat back when I WAS thin.

Man, don't I know it, Sherry! I used to work with a girl who was about a size 2, and ALL she ate was junk food! She would eat big ol' cinnamon rolls for breakfast, Ho-Ho's and jelly beans for lunch....she also put SEVEN lumps of sugar in her 6 oz. cup of coffee!
