Put a chalk mark on the board for Crunchy after only two weeks of workouts, I have told the 200s to kiss my royal red bootie! Never again shall I see that dreaded number. That scale might of thought it knew who was boss, but it didn’t realize that it had awoken the beast!
In previous years when that number reared its ugly head, it would’ve resulted in a puddle of tears and a self-loathing pint or two of ice cream. (Counter productive, I know). This time it stirred the Kraken; the inner strenght and determination ( my husband likes to call it my stubborn streak) that is going to get my weight under control once and for all.
Don’t get me wrong, even at 200 pounds, I am still a hot mama. It’s not the weight that’s the issue it’s the fact that nothing fits! I feel like me in a fat suit. Active by nature, life has just gotten in the way. My weight suffered from me putting everything before myself: pizza, ice cream, cheesecake, I mean EVERYTHING! (Ok, so I took the phrase “watch what you eat” a little too literally)
After two strong weeks of workouts and a whole crap ton of water, I climbed atop that familiar foe and with positive thinking set the scale to 150 and slung it all the way to the right. Opening my eyes, I screamed “Hallelujah!” I think the lady getting in the dressing room next to me thought I was nuts. The scale sunk down and declared that 200 lbs. was TOO heavy!
Victorious, I gradually slid it back to the left when it stopped at 199 pounds!!!! So take that flabby foe. Crunchy is one step closer to no longer being gravitationally challenged. Never again shall I see your dreaded number. You, 200 pounds, can officially kiss my slightly less than extra large butt!
This week has been surprisingly easier than I thought. Join by the forces of a workout buddy, my best friend Juliana, and My Fitness Pal. I have really not felt like anything is different except I am more active. I even had not one but TWO pieces of chocolate cake yesterday!
