a day late and a dollar short   Leave a comment

alright, I’m not a day late, I am actually thirty days late.
What am I talking about?
That New Years Resolution I made way back in December.

the losing weight resolution.

Here we are sitting on the last day of January and I just now am getting my act together and deciding I need to get healthier and lose some weight.

(No it didn’t take me a month to decide this, more of a month to get my act together)

I have cut out sugar and all pop, since January 1st and I have lost ten pounds.
it was 12 but I have some how gained back two pounds.

I am determined though to be at least 20 if not more pounds lighter by May 1st .

I say twenty because I don’t want to be unrealistic.
Naturally I would like to lose all fifty I need to lose, by May 1st

What a great 50th birthday present that would be to me!!!
But I doubt that will happen.

I give myself a  year to lose all fifty pounds.
Hopefully it won’t take that long but I feel like when I say  I will lose twenty pounds in four months is more realistic to do than saying I will lose fifty pounds in four months.
Does that make sense?

I want to be healthier too, not just thinner.
I want to be able to move like I am a young woman and not like I am this arthritic almost fifty year old that I have become.

I know I can do it, and I WILL!!!!!
