Okay...enough messing around!

Sunday, November 04, 2007

These past couple of weeks have been really rough and I found myself (Not to ANYONE's surprise, least of all me!) stress eating. I have gained 6 pounds. That ...as they say...is QUITE enough!

Since my darling Dark team has new challenges beginning tomorrow, I went in and re-figured my stats...new baby goal of 21 pounds by my birthday which will make 45 pounds gone in just over a year. Not shabby at all.

I have GOT to find that excitement and motivation I had when I first started out. Not sure how...but I shall find it. Part of my wanting to pick up again came from a totally surprising source. I LOVE to watch watch Ballroom Dancing. I have been captivated by "Dancing with the Stars."

Last night I watched the Ballroom Smooth dance Championship competition on PBS and I had this feeling in the pit of my tummy....butterflies and excitement. I can SO see myself in a beautiful, diaphanous , flowing gown, dancing in the arms of a strong , handsome man, looking as if we were dancing on air. (Have I ever mentioned that I am SUCH a GIRL???*LOL*)

I think, once I lose enough weight that I don't feel and LOOK like an elephant on roller skates, I would LOVE to take dance classes. I may bevery much a girly girl...I am a not so graceful one at that. I think I would also love to take some ballet classes to at least try and become a wee bit more graceful. One of my very favorite actresses, Jane Seymore is on this season of Dancing with the stars...when I grow up I want to look like her and be as graceful as she is when she dances.

So, the bottom line is....Back in the saddle....Onward and downwards (as in weight)...I CAN SO do this.

    You can do this!! And you want to know what? DWTS has a workout video, in fact, any of the learn to dance videos would be a good workout. You could always try something like that to get yourself into it too, then when you take a class you'll be a 'leg' up, lol. Keep baby stepping lovey.
