Five weeks have passed since my last post. Enough time has passed for me to have yet another paper due...the paper related to my last post. You know, the one about my fabulous weight loss....or lack of, as it seems. Have I mentioned that I'm a stress eater? Have I also mentioned that I'm in two classes, one of which is Nursing Research? The Nursing Research class requires me to find two research articles a week, critique them and add an amazingly brilliant comment to six classmates posts. My other class is a Community Health class - this would be the one that I wrote my weight loss paper for. Now....I am supposed to write a synopsis of my past four weeks...and how I did on my goals.... I'm not sure if I go with an honest "I stink and will be fat forever" or something more like "I realized that my goals were very ambitious and chose to rewrite them to state that I will do a daily search of the most successful appetite suppressant" which I must add.... I would have met!
Tommy has decided that we should do P90X. According to the infomercial, in 90 days I will have the cut, hard body of a 20 year old. Apparently this product effects gravity and time travel! Unfortunately, in my 20's, I was not a hard body....I was more of a fluffy body. Not fat by any means but more voluptuous and curvy. I am still voluptuous and curvy...or is it more....bumpy? I went from curvy in the right places to where in the heck did that roll come from? Soooo....with P90X, I will loose my 20 excess curves and become fit, healthy and slim. Ahhh...then comes the catch....you know there always is one! I have to actually do the exercises....not just watch the video...Not looking as likely!
I am continuing my training for the 3Day walk although I need to kick it up a notch. I'm heading out today to buy some new shoes....I have learned that you don't go cheap when you're walking 60 miles. Cheap shoes do many blisters and painful feet make. I am also continuing with my fundraising which I think is part of my eating issues. I've never been good at asking for money regardless of the cause. So, I throw it out, get no response and eat a cookie. Apparently, now my weight issues are the fault of Susan G Komen. And we all thought she was this incredible, intelligent women that has raised awareness and funds for an incredibly worthy cause...
So what are your thoughts? What has worked for you? I no longer trust Internet reviews as for every negative review, there is a product developer writing a positive one right underneath! I do...however...trust you! Since I can't find the Easy Button, help me find the "with some effort, it may work" button. I know that I have it in me somewhere....I have been here before and temporarily conquered the fat women inside me. My thin person has seen the light of day at least three times in the past ten years....before my fat side swallowed her up again. She's in there....I need to get her out before she disappears all together! Life is good....fat or thin...but in the end, I'd rather be thin!
Love to you all!
