Two weeks ago, I decided I should lose some weight. So I set a casual goal of losing one pound in a week, did some extra walking and kept a lazy eye on what and how much I was eating.
A week later, my weight was different by one pound. Unfortunately, it was a pound I had gained, rather than lost! As of this morning, that number had climbed to two.
So I’ve decided that I had better get my “lazy eye” in gear soon or I won’t be able to fit into my contacts much longer. And my lazy “rest of me” also needs to get moving or I won’t be able to fit into anything else!
Losing about 10-15 pounds would make a huge difference.
I liked the carefree days of being able to tie my shoes without almost pulling my shoulder out of joint because my arms have to stretch over a wider circumference of waistline. It was nice not getting winded walking up the stairs and not having to inhale and do the watusi just to button my pants. I enjoyed sporting only one chin.
Just a little confession and accountability here. I gotta lose some weight. I’m thinking that surely I can drop at least a pound a week over the next 10 weeks.
I get serious in the morning. Anyone out there want to join me?
