If you want to take my picture...

From now on I'll probably try to kick you in the box. I am not happy with my midsection...and it's my own fault. My scale this morning said 148.7. Worst. Scale. EVER. It could be a hell of a lot worse, but I could be way better. The issue is that I do NOT feel comfortable. ...and then the facebook pictures show up. And of course I'll share them with you, because that's what I do. I have attempted to crop and blur out the innocent for their protection. I know, I'm being too hard on myself, but these pictures BUG me. And I'm not looking for the, "you look fab! don't be so hard on yourself!" comments. I don't like seeing rolls hang over my pants and stick out every where, but really, short of surgery they aren't going anywhere. But once upon a time, one year ago, they were a lot less prominent. I have become really lazy in a lot of respects yet am JUST as active. I find it funny that I'm happier than I've ever been and it seems to settle right around my tummy-tum-tum. It's like what they say about married people...except I'm missing that significant other... So the never-ending cycle of wake-up calls begins! there is exactly ONE MONTH until the Scotia Waterfront half, which means I have 30 days to lose 8.7 lbs (140 looks good on me, ya know). Can I do it?

You know, I thought summer would be easier - get out and enjoy the weather, but it was the opposite this year. I did enjoy the summer, but am looking forward a more structure because I need to stop with the fat and sugar intake level I've been at for weeks now and focus on lifting some iron instead of WW bars and pretzels. Ya know...

For me, I know it's my job right now.

I find that I eat out a lot more here than I did before.

I hope next week, when I'm settled in, I will be back to making my lunch every day.

...and away from the gelato enabler :P

he he he.

Of course you can do it!

P.S. I love the expression on your face in the second pic :)

ok...first off I think you look great but this isn't about what I think, it is all you sista. Good on you for looking at it and realiziing you aren't happy with something before the whole damn thing blossoms out of control (this is more what I like to do, then I just avoid pictures and mirrors and that is working well for me - NOT) You can do it, and at least you took notice early in the game.

paige said...

I love your brother too btw. Of course I don't know him. But I love that he wrote werk.

Jen said...

I won't say what you don't want me to say even though I am thinking it!

On word: SPANX

marie said...

two words: bite me.

marie said...

k, that may come across as harsh, but I say that all of the time.

I refuse to wear sucker-inners.

I won't play games with my gut.

Either I work on it or it put it out there.

No false senses of security.

Jennifer said...

Good for you Mouse! I think your scale and my scale go to Suckyland and live together in suck-ish harmony. Because they both equally suck, ya know.

And can you lose 8.7 lbs in 30 days? NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! This Mouse is FIERCE! :)

marie said...

Who the hell are you?

Shirls said...

I believe!

What, you don't know who I am. Obviously I haven't told you my spanx stories.

marie said...

Moo - don't do that to me. I get freaked out when people don't leave their names.

MizFit said...

you can.

totally.

(blood spurts on keybooard from tongue where she's biting it not to say YOU LOOK GREAT WHATS THE DEAL!?)

Merry said...

I won't say you look Fab, but I'm only refraining 'cause I don't want you to beat me up. You look a little ticked off in that 2nd photo. (But in a thin way.)
On the other hand, if being cranky is what cranks up your motivation, go for it! You are going to kick ass and lose the 8.7 pounds, no worries.

Ooops almost forgot the name again.

I feel ya, babe!! So what are you waiting for? Get back to it and reach that 140! Maybe we should challenge each other to get there. I'm at 149 and would love to be around 130 by November so reaching 140 by the end of this month would be a great goal. I'll race you there!!!

Shrunk said...

UGH! You and me both Mouse. My scale's been creeping UPPPPPPPPPP!

BOoooooooooooo :O(

I'm gonna start working really hard on Tuesday when I get home from holidays. Good luck to you. We can do this!

Sara said...

don't have much to say that won't inflict bodily harm on me, besides the way I'm going now I'm not really one to be handing out advise! Yay to new beginnings and new schedules and new starts!!

Sara said...

P.S. I think you look so cute in the 2nd pic. Okay running away now!

Lucas said...

Mouse,
You said in one of your comments that you "won't play games with your gut"...does that mean you won't have surgery? You've worked so hard and had such great results and sometimes skin just won't snap back no matter what. While surgery is a drastic step, if it's the one last piece of the puzzle to get you totally comfortable in your own skin, I say go for it. It doesn't mean you won't still be active, it doesn't mean you cheated. It just means you are doing something for yourself to make you feel better. Please take this with a grain of salt because I am a plastic surgery virgin. I just thought I'd throw this out there since no one else did.

And for the record, you DO look fab but you can tell me to eff off if you like. I can take it! ;)

marie said...

No worries :)

But I'm 29 and haven't had children yet. I think it may be pointless to have abdominoplasty only to expand again with a child.

I wouldn't want to waste the $10000 only to be back where I started.
