OMG It's Time

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Yesterday was my 50th birthday My parents were over as was my daughter. My dad took pictures. Let me tell you these pictures are "RUDE Awakening 101"---I can't believe how fat I am. It's amazing you can be in your own body; see yourself in a mirror every day and STILL have no idea of how humungous you really are. This is a vow. BY my NEXT birthday things will be very different. I'm getting serious now.

Here are a few of the incriminating pictures.

If there was a hole, I'd go and crawl in it.
Well there it is ladies and gentlemen, the plain, awful truth. Now to go and do something about it

    Woman! You know I love you and respect you dearly, but I will not have you picking on my friend and telling her that she is fat! I learned this trick from BKWERM!! Stop picking on my friend and calling her names!!

    You are a wonderful, dyn-o-mite person and you are always there supporting someone else. Well let me tell you that you are gorgeous inside and out, and we ALL hate pictures being taken when we fee like crap about ourselves. I send one official photo to my mother a year and I tell her it is for "body identificaiton purposes". Meaning that if I go missing or die, she will have a photo to show people what I really look like. I rarely EVER have a full body photo taken. And it's because I am not so thrilled with my fat roll... who cares!!

    You are alive and you have a lovely famly and you should be proud of yourself. You, as _Linda pointed out, are falling apart and they couldn't even fix Humpty Dumpty and he was just an egghead! You are a complex being and sometimes when parts break, we have to wait a long time to fix them. And your parts have been through the mill!! So hold tight to a positive attitude, take your anger and disgust with your joints out in SLOW walking. I have decided that it doesn't matter how far I walk in 50 minutes, but I am out and moving for 50 minutes for a walk. Who cares if I walk the same 5-feet over and over? No one. It just counts that I am trying, and you are too.

    Thank you for your prayers and support today and all the other cruddy days I have had. So I am here for you, lean on me and we will walk crooked together!

    Peace and hugs,

    Don't be so hard on yourself. When you can't exercise due to a falling apart painful body from Hell, you can't really expect to be dropping weight. What excuse do your parents have for their obesity? Are you influenced by the genes you inherited? Sometimes its hard to break free from what you were brought up with. Our early years really do set the tone and define us for later. I was brought up with fast food, packaged food, junk food and pop. While I can leave a lot of it alone, I still have my favorites.
    You have an absolutely gorgeous daughter! You would look as good too, if your face wasn't etched in pain and exhaustion. You are worn out fighting your health problems and that is what shows. I can only hope this hip surgery gives you some of your life back. So sorry you are suffering so much, physically and mentally :((
