Huff, Puff, Sweat,

Well, I'm starting week 8 of the"Go For It - Get Fit Challenge" tomorrow.

How are things going, you ask?

Eh. Not so good.
I have lost 3 lbs.
(On a good day.)

Here's an update from the paper today: CLICK HERE.

I must admit that I'm super bummed that the weight isn't falling off of me.
Seems weight has never fallen off of me
For any reason.

I didn't want to admit it to the newspaper, but my enthusiasm is waning.
I'm starting to
less than motivated pull on my stretchy pants
...and my poorly fitted sports bra
...and pump my aching calf muscles
...for 35 more minutes
...hoping for an inspirational song to come on next move me along
...while staring at the wall ahead of me dreaming of what I could look like
...if I was only 10 lbs lighter.

I'm hoping tomorrow is the day.
The day I wake up and find the scales
of fitness
have tipped in my favor.

Hoping tomorrow is the day I have
a big breakthrough
finding my stride
and learning to love

Which not-so-surprisingly
rhymes with
absolutely NOTHING.

I'm assuming this is because
there are many of us out here
that wish it would just go away.

Now, let me make it clear to you...
I am not giving up.
Not at all.

I'm just disappointed it's not going as I had imagined.

Good news is that at least this week's photo is okay.

aw, yer just converting it into muscle tissue, which is more dense than what it repaces, plus you have cute new glasses.

If your pants fit and your face looks thinner that sounds like progress no matter what some dumb scale says.
