Hahaha, that title pretty much sums up my dilemma. It’s not like I am surprised either. I have been stuffing my face with all kinds of junk, not running, and I have barely left the house much at all in the last few of months. The result: I have packed on waaaaaaay too many pounds. It started just after I had a miscarriage in August, and during the four months since then I have basically just “let go”. A couple of days before Christmas I tried to on my old “fat pants” (since none of the others fit) and I could barely close them. Alas, my only options now are track pants, PJ’s, and my preggo-tights (man, those are way too comfy). I need motivation, and I need it fast. The cold weather, the high levels of pollution, and my lack of desire to go outside have resulted in me pretty much not caring about being healthy and fit. That has to stop now! Last Christmas, with a 6 month old baby, I weighed 25 lbs less than I do now. This isn’t even just about losing weight… I can’t climb the 6 flights of stairs that lead to our front door without almost falling over, huffing, and puffing. I miss my “fit self”!
Anyway, with Christmas behind me, and a new year to look forward to (is it just me or was 2015 a tough one?!) I signed up for this DietBet, and instead of the regular $25-30 stakes, this one is for a whopping $100. Sadly, my motivation is so long gone that I worry about whether I have just thrown $100 down the drain. hahaha… I’m hoping that the larger bet keeps me in line.
I’m posting this so that I don’t just count on the $100 motivating me. Those of you that know me well will now be asking about this bet, and how it is going – thereby providing more accountability. AND I REALLY NEED ACCOUNTABILITY!
