Greetings Old Friends,
Thanksgiving is truly a magical time of year for me. The cool crisp air, the orange hue of the sun, the colourful trees and falling leaves – all of it is just perfection in my eyes. This is the time we remind ourselves of how thankful we should all be for all we are so lucky to have.
This time of year, Thanksgiving also reminds me how important turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy are in my life….so much so that I am literally still feeling the effects of my turkey / stuffing / mashed potato / gravy coma of gluttony. I swear, I hosted Thanksgiving for sixteen people on Friday night and Couldn’t. Stop. Eating. leftovers until last night. I told myself (for the 100th time) I CAN’T do this anymore and by “do this” I mean eat like an animal preparing for hibernation.
You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t written here (or anywhere) even once this year. Last time I posted (where I wrote it, not just 2012 stats) was November 2012 so 11 months ago. Most likely you don’t care since you all have very important & fabulous lives to think about, but I have started to care and I guess I am the one person that needs to…to ensure success anyway. I have started this blog up again in an attempt to help keep motivated and accountable.
I’ve now gained back the full 30lbs that I lost last year. This is old news, since the new news is today is a new day.
I have been searching for motivation which has seemed impossible and it has now clicked – feeling like shit everyday about where I am is not where I want to be. My first motivation is to look fab in pictures. Yes, I am that vain and if that’s what works for now, then so be it. My second motivation is to not be the fat girl anymore..generally, noone actually likes fat people, unless you are fat yourself. You may be shocked at my bluntness, but it is true. Think about it and admit it. I refuse to ignore that little fact anymore and I would rather be disliked and envied for being gorgeous, hot and sexy with an amazing personality than fat and ugly. Besides, my goal is to finish my children’s book and I want to look hot at my book tour to ensure a movie / television & product deal. The third motivation is Michael Kors Fall boots….sigh….screw these thick calves ’cause I am DONE with them. The fourth motivation? ONEderland. I need to get back in the 100’s, bottom line. Of course there are more motivating factors here, but you will learn them as I go.
This is Day 1 Version 5.0. I have started Weight Watchers today.
Blog Soon, PFF
p.s. I have started an Instagram account since a picture can speak 1000 words (or a 1000 pounds, depending on how you pose and filter) so if you want to follow me there as well, go ahead: phattofittofab
