How to explain this? I really don't think there is anything wrong with my weight if I simply consider the number in comparison to my height. The problem is in comparison to my bone structure. I am really tired of having no defined waistline and extra bulge in the mid-section.
Basically, my self-image is that of a pudgy stick figure. I realize that I'm never going to be one of those curvy women, so at this point I'm just trying to pull off somewhat of an athletic look. The mid-section bulge has to go. And this winter, I'm going to work on shedding a few pounds.
The Challenge: Lose 8 lbs between now and 13-Feb (which happens to be my 43rd b'day).
The Reward: $150 shopping extravaganza for a running skirt of my choice and all the coordinating tops and/or other accessories that happen to suit my fancy.
This will be WAY harder than any of you might realize.
For one thing, I've just discovered that Baskin-Robbins now has peanut butter topping, something that I haven't had available for the 17yrs that I moved away from Friendly's territory. Peanut.Butter.Topping. Have you tried this stuff?!?! Oh.My.Gosh. You have no idea how much of a weakness I have for ice cream with peanut butter topping. It's pure evil. It's calling my name even as I type...
Then there's this little event called THANKSGIVING in which I carbo-load on pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes and other yummies until I about expload.
Then the Christmas baking. Aye carumba.
Think I can do it? I'm really not sure that I can.
And if I can't, I'm thinkin' I might as well just belly up to the Baskin Robbins bar and order me a big ol' sundae with peanut butter topping right now...
