Hi all! I was thinking I should get some goals going here. So, I've thought of one.
1. Fit into the jeans I fit into back in 1983. And, yes, although the zipper is broken I still have them! That would be so cool to get back into them. AND, I want to be leaner than I think I was then. Goal date, hmm. I think that means I've got around 12 kg to lose. One kg is 2.2 lbs. So let's say about 25 lbs and have muscle. So by summer should be an easy goal. So, rust-color jeans by summer! Yeah! And I don't mean squeeze into them so the new zipper I'm going to put in 'em breaks again! I mean, have them comfortably loose!
Crime girl -- speaking of goals, good luck on meeting yours. How do you plan on getting there? Are you following a specific regime or counting calories? 16 lbs in a month? Isn't that a bit fast? Well, in any case, good luck! oh, and you in a bikini photo "good for running off bugs!!!" you crack me up!!
And, I've decided not to worry about the job front anymore. Don't know if I mentioned it but I had another talk with the boss about him pulling me off that work that I had wanted to do. I pretty much laid into him, or rather, just really let him know how unhappy his decision made me. He later sent me an email saying he was a fool and that he had had his reasons and that he namely needs me for other things and will consult with me. Well, I'm not holding my breath. He always "needs me." What he doesn't seem to understand is that I'm no longer willing to comply as readily as I did in the past. I mean, sure I like the guy, but I don't like any guy enough to jump when whistled for. No way!! And right now there was a call on my cell phone and it looks like the work number and I ain't answering. I said I wouldn't do this special work for him and he practically begged me to. If he wants me to he can beg for sure!!
I tell you, 2005 is going to be MY year. I'm going to have a great year, I've just gone and decided!
little grasshopper -- Ok, good for you for doing OK on your diet. Having family over is very tough on diets. And I think you're smart not to get on the scales. You KNOW when you've done everything well and you'll KNOW when you've lost pounds or inches and it is really only inches that matter. Pounds just come along with them eventually, emphasis on the "eventually!!"
Glad to hear you're getting back in control. I like you nickname you picked too! Wow, you must really be sensitive if sugar affects you like that! Do you exercise and is your heart OK? I wonder what the heart racing is from. I do know that when I've been off sugar that it will give me a giddy heart-racing feeling but I don't know if my heart rate is actually up or not. Hmm. Interesting.
Heh, I really enjoy reading everyone's posts too. It's like we've got a great little family here. I look forward to turning on my computer and reading hopefully lots of loooong posts! It's things like reading your goal of fitting into jeans "without a fat roll" or "right out of the dryer" and knowing just what you mean and how great that would feel to do.
Stay away from the candy!!! It's poison. Makes your skin gross too. You know, you can tell when you've been eating sugar. It makes your skin puffy like and the pores larger. Really! When you totally cut sugar from your diet you lose a good 5 lbs just of water weight because the sugar makes you retain water, puffing you up. I don't know why but it does.
michiemish -- too bad you had to work on Christmas. I did too but I snuck off! My paycheck will reflect my ways next month! yes, go to your WW meeting! Meetings are not just about losing weight and recording the fact. They're about helping you lose, again, EVENTUALLY! It doesn't make sense to stay away. They have those no weigh passes, right? You can take that if you think the scale will be a discouragement.
sthernBelle -- Good to see you back, all thawed I hope. Tight big jeans. Now that is a scary thought! Good luck. You can do it. Go for it!
stormy -- glad you had a good trip. weird. snow in southern Louie! Tres bizarre!! sounds like a lot of fun. Excellent move on the Christmas candy! Send that stuff packin'!! Svelte you just doesn't eat that stuff anymore!
