FAT – not PHAT

Got the pictures downloaded from the camera. Here’s my DS on his first day of school.

First Day!

Isn’t he a cutie-patootie? I finished his homework last night (had to fill out a little baby book thing for school – name, birthday, age, a baby picture of him and a baby picture of me and DH).

So in my search for pictures, I came across some really old ones of me. Let me just say THE HORROR. 😯 OH.MY.GOD. I had 80s hair! I didn’t remember having 80s hair. And no, I will not be posting those here. I’d like to burn them except they’re on a CD with other precious photos I can’t bear to part with. :hehe:

Anyway, found some of me and my good friend our senior year in high school. We were so chic. And I had bird legs. DAMN I miss being that skinny. And I thought then I was fat! What’s up with that? So it has spurred me into action. I ditched the gym this week (bad), but starting THIS WEEKEND, I am officially on a diet. (Diet is DIE with a T, right?)

I even talked with my DH about it (he’s in Albuquerque) and he agreed – he wants to lose 5 pounds a month for the next year. I told him I am so with him on that bandwagon. Together, we’re going to get into shape. I’m going to lose this ugly fat roll in my gut.

I was riding up in the mirrored elevator (WHY? WHY did they do that?? Don’t they know we women don’t REALLY want to see ourselves so early in the morning?) and I discovered that (a) I have horrible fat ugly hips, (b) my ass is too large, (c) never wear this pants AGAIN.

So, needless to say, I feel rather fat, bloated, and disgusting today.

And now for today’s 10 Things:
