Yes, this is a weird title, but just stay with me and let me explain.
Let me start off by saying I have never been overweight. However, a little over a year ago we bought a Wii and then also bought the Wii Fit. When you start the Wii Fit you put in all your vital statistics, such as age, height, and sex. My answers were 28, 5’5”, and yes. You then stand on the stupid board and it spins an alien looking body around on the TV screen, and very scientifically up comes your BMI.
Well, the results were in… It said my BMI was 25.0, and it also said “overweight.” WHAT? LIAR!
Okay, so I was only overweight by 0.1 because 24.9 is normal weight, but still. How did this happen? One reason is due to the Lyrica I was on for Shingles, but that is a sucky excuse in my book. I was truly a lazy, ice cream eating, non exercising bum.
So, what did I do? Honestly, for awhile I did nothing. Then, last September Alivia started kindergarten and Lainey and I needed something to do from 8:45-noon, so we joined the Y. However, I was only exercising by default, because I had nothing better to do. Yeah, the weight just melted away…not!
But then, a lovely, yet horrible thing happened. In November I turned 29 and Shawn threw me a surprise party. Here is one of the pictures…
After seeing the photos from the party (and stabbing my husband for throwing a party for me), I made it my goal to lose 30 pounds by my 30th birthday.
So, how’s that working for me?
I now have a little less than 2 months until my birthday, and I hate to be a downer, but I don’t think I can reach the goal. I’m going to try really hard though, and that brings us to the title…
Why is it that unless you’re grossly obese, people aren’t supportive of you losing weight? If I tell anyone I still have 4 more pounds to lose they look at me like I just said, “I’m only drinking water and Ex-lax until I reach my goal.”
I don’t get it.
