Or “fat ass”. Either way, this portly pepper pot needs to shed some lbs.
Part of my New Years resolutions for this year (and every year) involves weight loss. It’s something I continually struggle with, and it’s getting worse as I age and my metabolism slows down.
I wish there was a simple solution. Other than meth, that is.
The frustrating thing is that moving the needle on the scale is proving to be really difficult. I’m not exactly sedentary– I go to the gym 5 times a week. I do cardio, push-ups, sit-ups, and lift some free weights. I also do yoga.
And I know they say the real key to weight loss lies in dietary changes. Which is also frustrating because I don’t have any real easy changes to make there.
I don’t drink any soda (diet or regular), I have stopped buying potato chips. I don’t drink alcohol (maybe a beer a month). I don’t snack between meals. I eat a small breakfast (cereal or toast, and some fruit) every morning. Lunch is usually a sandwich and some chips. Dinner is… ?
And still I’m a fatty fatty two-by-four.
I’ve recently taken to getting soup for dinners. More small things like yogurt to eat for dinner. And I’m trying not to eat late.
I’ve also started weighing and charting my weight each day. And I’ve maaaaaaaybe lost a pound.
Grrrrrr. I need to lose 20 lbs to feel better about myself. 30 lbs to be roughly the right size for me. And 40 lbs to be “healthy”.
I’d settle for 15 just so my pants for better.
