Giant Whale Coming Through

Must. breathe. treadmill. kicking. my. booty.
I. need. water.
My. legs. are. falling. off. my. body!
Why. is. my. butt. so. big?
I. swear. i. will. eat. better.
This. is. just. ridiculous.
Where's. the. damn. weight. loss. fairy?


My hubby and I watched "The Biggest Loser" premiere last night, nothing like good old fat guilt to get you motivated! So here I am exhausted, hot, sweaty, and STARVING!

I have a ton of things coming up in 2009 that require weight loss:

*High School Reunion (aaahhhhhhhhhhhh)
*Home Building (I want to have a pretty house with a pretty body)
*Trips to visit family now that we're closer (They all remember me smaller then I am now...)

But, the main reason for all this crazy workout stuff is

I am SICK and TIRED of being a giant whale!!!

I know I sound like every other female after new years "My resolution for the new year is to lose weight and get in shape" blah blah blah... 2 months later we're all back on the couch eating ice cream.

I have to get it right this time. I am heavier then I have ever been, even when i was pregnant with both my kids. No reason for this fat except me. I am just not as active as I once was and it has caught up with me.

OK, thanks for helping me cool-down from the treadmill of death. Off I go to fold laundry (how many calories do I burn for that?)


Ta Ta for now

I think folding laundry is at least 200c/hour. If you see that fairy, please tell her to come visit me when she's done at your house. :)

I have a bone to pick - You are NOT a giant whale!

Exercise is great for physical and mental well-being though, so I am all for your determination. :-)

Hey Lizzie - I found you through Nikki's.

Yep - I'm heavier than I've ever been too and MUST do something about it. I'm active, but obviously not active enough.

And yes, the Biggest Loser is incredibly motivating - I missed it though (was probably eating cookies while blogging)

Nice to meet you!

Your exercising AND folding laundry? Why you gotta be all good and stuff?

I wish I had enough self control to do the diet exercise thing. I just feel like giving up. I'm such a sucker for all the wrong kinds of food! I hope you make it work...then maybe you can inspire me to get off my duff!

Oh yes, I have the HS reunion coming up too....oy!

Love the pic!

Good luck, you can do it!

You certainly don't look like a 'giant whale' to me, but I can't help what you personal image of your body might be...but just know that to me, if you are a giant whale then I must be 5 football fields....Lol!!

i am at my highest weight post first baby.

uggh. i'm trying to find the willpower to workout but i'm just too tired.

i know that sounds whiney and lame, but it's true.

and sitting here reading what you have to say is much more fun.

Liz!!!! You are not a whale! Hardley in fact. But, I do understand your incredible frustration, I think most of us can relate to it at one time or another during our lives. You are making your move and I know you can and will stick with it! Stay focused and don't deprive yourself of everything...and most importantly, don't be too hard on yourself-
