Confession is good for the soul

Way too many years of this activity (as modeled by the Softball Princess)

And eating meals like this (Zaxby's Club Sandwich basket) - 1221 calories

Have me looking like this (Rosalyn Sue took this photo at the art workshop. I do like the photo but it has triggered the subject of this post) I am terribly overweight.

Seeing that picture and being very self conscious of my weight in certain situations, finds me going on weight watchers, counting points and eating more of these - fresh fruits and veggies. (Apples on one of Grandaddy's trees.)

And making one of the most excruciating decisions of my life. Starting summer workout bootcamp at a local christian school.

When the outdoor temps are like this (factor in that sweet southern humidity too)

In the shade.
I didn't die. I didn't quit. I did sweat, and almost puke. And I am going back tonight.
Good God -- I have lost my freakin' mind.
TIP JAR - any of you have any great ideas for keeping my best friend from the satisfaction of seeing me quit ---- again? You know - staying motivated - good recipes - ect and so on....
Because he said this phrase to me last night ------ "WE'LL SEE"

good for you... starting is the hardest part.... once you see some results it should be easier.. just be careful you don't do too much to soon and get sore and stiff then it will be too easy to eat something bad I am into day two of little to no carbs.. I'm sick of looking like a cow, beached whale, etc. etc etc.

Good for you is right! I'm proud of you. I think that is a fantastic picture of you, by the way. Thanks for leaving a comment my way. I can always count on you to read :)

Yay! Keep it up! Call me when you get time - I have a plethora of recipes that taste good and are under 100 calories. You can do it!

Laura said...

Make that under 400 calories... 100 is like 1 apple. :)

Keep a food log. Write down everything you eat...even the bad choices....

see you there! said...

I really like the photo. A couple of my friends did weight watchers with varying degrees of success. The one who did best at getting it off and keeping it off said one thing was eating the same thing every day for lunch. She works, takes her lunch from home. Said it was just easier than thinking about it every day and she knew that particular meal was set.

way to go!!! i totally need to do that too....I gained back all the weight I lost last year plus some. But it's hard to lose when I love to eat and I'm not good at exercising:) I love to get WW cookbooks at the thrift store - I have a nice little collection going now I just need to actually use them:)
