WHAT???? I'm Fat??????????

So.  New Year's day has come and gone but people are still buzzing about RESOLUTIONS.  Barf.  I'm not a big fan of New Year's resolutions.  One should be able to resolve whenever they want to or need to.  As it turns out.....this year I NEED to make a resolution or two NOW. 

I weighed myself.  Not cool.  So I went on this cool website, plugged in my height, weight, age blah blah blah....THEY told me that I am OBESE.  Not overweight, not pleasantly plump, not ideal....but OBESE.  Screw them, must be a sham.  So I went to another site.   NOPE.  Not a sham.  The other site was just as rude.  Man, the truth hurts. 

So, I AM FAT.  I don't think I am fat.  I think I'm quite HOT.  BUT, the scales don't lie.  And apparently, neither do these evil calculating websites.  This is it.  I weigh....A goal weight is about 50lbs less than A LOT.  I have a plan.  It will work.  Over the course of the next few months I will be blogging on my journey to my ideal weight.  Anyone care to join me?

For Christmas, I requested from Santa (knowing that I was not naughty and would get what I asked for) a copy of Zumba for the Wii.  Yesterday I fired it up.  I created my profile - put on the belt - moved some furniture - and DANCED!  Thank God no one was watching.  I love dancing and I love Zumba, but seriously....I DO NOT have the moves like Jagger.  I shook my booty until it hurt.  A one hour dance off - just me and the Wii.  I burned 994 calories.  NOT BAD.  I think I can get used to this.

This morning, I am sore.  Yesterday's 994 calorie burn hurts.  But alas, I have made the pledge to improve and gosh-darnit-all I WILL do it.  I will be dancing again today.  Tomorrow I will be shaking up a storm on the T-zone. 

I have resolved to lose weight before and I didn't do it.  I have been hovering around the same weight for years.  I am content.  THAT is the problem.  I'm getting older, and NOW is the time to make the changes. 

I have admitted that I have a problem.  I am taking steps to improve on the situation - for me and for my loved ones.  Day 2 - I am coming for you.  LOOK OUT!!!

I will post in a week - let you know how I'm making out.


  1. Cheers to you! You are right, when you get older, (like me) I am in my sixties, pounds are extremely difficult to take off! I wouldn't mind joining you and some friends, just have to find time. In the meantime, I will be cheering you on! I am having trouble posting a comment from my blog, this might say Annonymous, but it is me Rose, met you at your renovation party last year at your place.
