Well, I actually have some news for a change! Instead of just writing my opinion on books, movies, conservative politics, or boring people with my everyday life, I've made a decision.
I have been displeased with how I've gained weight over the last few months. A lot of people say to me, "Oh please, you have nothing to worry about" or "That's just ridiculous!" Well, to me it's not ridiculous. I read somewhere that everyone has weight/body issues, and when you become severely unhappy or inhibited because of your body image, it's time to really work on it.
Well, I'm there.
I have decided to use NutriSystem for the next few months. My mom used this system for awhile and feels great now (she's always been beautiful to me!). I've worked out in my head how I'm going to pay for it (and I realized I can still actually save for us to travel, too!), and this is something I'm really committed to.
I've never been unhappy with my weight before. In high school, I was always that girl who could eat anything and not worry. Well, lately it's just been accumulating, and a lot of it has been out of my control (medication, etc.). However, I've decided to make changes and really get in shape and healthy. It may seem extreme to some to have food delivered to my house, but I know my tendencies. I need a PLAN that doesn't just rely on my strength and discipline alone. It'll kind of be like having a chef that knows just the right portions for me (although I'm not kidding myself: Wolfgang Puck isn't exactly cooking for NutriSystem right now...). I need something convenient, and in conjuction with exercise, I feel really optimistic about the results.
I know this may be a weird post to some, but one of my resolutions was my health/weight. Kurt is behind me 100%, and I just don't want to look in the mirror in horror while trying on bathing suits again. Just keeping it real, people! I appreciate your support and encouragement, as always :)
Oh, and if I don't end up looking like this, I'm asking for my money back. :)
