No, I don't mean our stomachs. Now that we truly do have an empty nest, and I have nothing to distract me, I am ready to get down and rumble with my weight issue. My son is getting married on October 21 and I really don't want to ruin the wedding pictures with my frumpiness :( So, I will start today. I have 80 pounds to lose (the same 80 pounds that I lost two years ago and gained back during these last eight months . . . sigh). And I have a plan . . . well, sort of. We are moving our daughter's bedroom downstairs to our son's now-empty bedroom, and then we are moving the treadmill upstairs to our daughter's then-empty bedroom. I must also be able to watch Survivor and Real Housewives while I am transforming my body, so we will put a TV upstairs also. . . . okay, okay, you don't need to know (or want to know) every detail. Suffice it to say, I have a plan. I know I can't lose 80 pounds by October 21, but I CAN make a difference in my body. I have six weeks.
I won't tell you how much I weigh (just like my age, to SAY the number grosses me out). but I do want to be accountable, so, I will tell how much I lose. Yea! It's kind of exciting!
