Tomorrow is my birthday!

So, tomorrow I will officially be another year older. Wow! I'm still having my "year end crisis" that I typically have around my birthday. So, I made Husband go out and buy me a scale for my birthday. Yes, it was my idea. As mentioned before, my pants have been tight, and my current scale only shows a 2 pound increase, which I know can't be the case. So, Husband bought the new one for me, and sure enough it showed a whopping 4 pound increase. Somehow, though, I don't believe either scale. I believe I've added about 5-10 pounds, but the scales don't agree.

And, the next item I want for my birthday is a full length mirror. I want to see where the added fat has decided to bond on me. I know, I'm weird. My thought is this: if I see just how fat I am in the mirror, maybe I won't eat as much. This theory or idea seems to be working with the scale. I'm already down a few pounds. And, when I get the full length mirror, I'm sure I'll be horrified by the sight and stop eating such large, Sumo sized portions. So, wish me luck!

I know I seem overly consumed with being fat even though I have a normal BMI (body mass index), weight, still fit into a size 3/4, and can run 13.1 miles faster than ever. But, my clothes don't fit the same and I can no longer squeeze my fat ass into my size 2 jeans without causing bodily harm to myself. And, my waist is definitely thicker, and I don't like it. I don't feel comfortable in my clothes or my skin. So, I plan to start eating better and less. I'm only 4 foot 10 inches, but I eat the same amount as a grown man. So, I know the additional weight is self induced. I don't blame anyone except myself for shoveling in the extra calories that my small frame obviously doesn't need.

So, I hope my scale, mirror and tight clothes will be enough deterrent for me to stop feeding my fat face!

Wish me luck and Happy Birthday to me!

Good luck with weight maintenance. As you know, I fight that fight every day....and lately I've been losing.
2009 is going to be my comeback year. I'm going to drop 30 pounds, and get back in REAL running shape.
YOUR running is going great !! I hope you can get 5 more pounds off your tiny frame, and be even better than you are.
Happy Birthday, Munchkin !!!
