Well I did it.....

You all must think I am a little off or have nothing to do....I am off and I have more than the average person to do. BUT I am currently without my hubby so I have to share with someone...why not the whole free world?

Anyway I did it....I joined Curves tonight and I actually feel pretty good about it. I am 37 and some day I will be 40....and I plan on feeling good about myself when I get there. I think the biopsies and the hysterectomy made me realize that I had better take care of my body so that I can live a long healthy life......Not only that I was promised a complete dry dock overhaul of my bod...if I reach a certain weight. I get to have anything I want tucked, lifted, sculpted, sucked or enhanced. I will need some enhancement...the girls will shrink if I loose weight...Rick doesn't believe me...but they will.

The worst part was the weigh in and the measuring...ugh to see it put on paper is not pretty.....

I am also modifying the way I eat....I am on a fruit and veggie fast of sorts.....does anyone think I can get away with calling peanut m&m's a veggie? Really, that has been my only stumbling block in the last two days...those darn peanut m&m's. I have been eating baked potatoes for dinner...they ARE a vegetable and mixed variety of fresh veggies for lunch, and a slimfast shake for breakfast. In between I munch on plums, cherries, strawberries, and of course bananas.

So now I have to stick to this exercise thing because I am paying for it...you know you really aren't committed to the base gym because it's free. So now that I am spending my m&m money on Curves I need to be there. The hours are pretty flexible on the weeks when I open the school I can stop on the way home (it is directly between the school and my house....unfortunately it is also next to the KFC....what were they thinking?) and on the days I close I can go in the morning before I go in.

When DH comes home the only way he will know its me is because his children will be standing next to me.

I'm cheering you on, but I'm still not coming out to Nevah Land to do it with you. Why can't they have decent hours at the one in town?!
