Back on the wagon - time 3600000000000


I'm all over it.

18 lbs by 1/1. That way I'm down to the weight that the bf started dated me at... and it'll be our 1 year anniversary! CAN YOU IMAGINE?!?! It's been a year already! :)

So after I get those 18 lbs gone by 1/1, I need to drop another 32 by the magic wedding date so I'm not the fat bridesmaid.

Worked out last night. Sick-n-all. It was ok. Only 45 minutes on the elliptical, but I survived.

I get to be Maid o' Honor!

I'm so excited!

I've gotta loose 50 lbs so I don't have to be 'the fat bridesmaid'. You know there is always one. Well, it would be me. :) PLUS -- I need to look good in the pink feathered thing that the bride is going to make me wear. Goodness. ;)

"I need you to be supportive"

How can your friends and family help you with your diet and exercise plans?

I always say to my boyfriend “I need you to be supportive”.

But what does this mean? No one wants a nag, and in fact I don’t respond well to that, especially from my boyfriend (and vice versa). A friend of mine has actually sanctioned her boyfriend to be her food police! If that works for her great, but that would just drive me crazy.

What I think we all want deep down is for someone to go through it with us, and to be strong when we are weak. We can be strong for them when they need it as well. Often it is nice even to have someone who cheats sometimes like we do so we do not feel bad.

I will never get this out of any single person. None of us will. The only place we will ever get them from is within ourselves.

So what can they do that is helpful without being insane?

Wedding Date Watch

Everyone who is on the look out for our wedding date... we still don't have one.

We are getting closer though, talking to venue's etc., but we are trying for early to mid August of 2007 so you can at least know the general time frame!

Are we hot yet?

The answer for me is a definite NO! I'm not any hotter, or healthier!

Working on getting over a freak shoulder injury right now.. might actually go see a chiro a first for me in my adult life.

Work schedules made me drop Jazzercise and my eating habits have gotten atrocious. Working on the "Change One" plan again. This week focusing on getting a healthy breakfast. Fruit and V8 :) At the same time I will have to start using the treadmill at home since my shoulder rules out a lot of other exercise options.

Ive actually been getting 3x a week exercise in, mainly hiking and volleyball, but my injuries and snacking habits have been my downfall the last month or so. I will have to work on more sensible snacks!

I'm going to need some help out here!!! Where you at Mel?
