The girl who cried "skinny"
Yup, that's me: the girl who cried "wolf!" ... because, let's face it. I have so many times said, "I'm doing it! I'm losing the weight!" ad nauseam, that frankly it's a little embarrassing to talk about. Again.

And in fact, it's so "again" that I decided to wait to talk about it again until I'd actually made some progress because at minimum I could point to that and say, "see?"

Anyway, I've lost 13 pounds. And it's true that you do change a clothing size approximately every 10 lbs (who knew? my sister; that's who). So I'm doing it again. I'm giving it the old college try. I'm starting over. I'm ... well. I'm done talking and I'm doing. But I'll talk a little about it here if you're interested. Don't feel obligated. Really!

Update 5/31/2012: I've changed the address of the blog, as overweightunemployedanatevka.blogspot.com was funny but no longer accurate :)

The burning it off is equally important, too

And for me, personally, I think that's the biggest (and most difficult) part. I have not been successful in shedding the 25 pounds I've packed on in the last 5 years. I actually quit Curves last fall because I just could not muster the energy to go, after putting in a full day's work. That was sad for me because I did enjoy it but I just couldn't do it. I now know for certain that my extreme low thyroid (Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) played a big role in my utter lack of energy) and in fact, was thrilled with the diagnosis; I expected the pounds to just fall away as soon as the thyroid meds kicked in and my energy began to return. Not so.

So, it's back to Curves as soon as school is out, and I do try to do the Leslie Sansone walk at home program (but have been a bit of a slug in that, as well)

Anyhow, keep up the good work.

Re: The burning it off is equally important, too

How's it going, friend? Is school out yet there? I'm thinking it should be any minute if it's not yet. I hadn't heard about your diagnosis, but I'm glad you got it if it gets you on the right meds and helps you figure out what makes you feel better.

Thanks for the encouragement!
