I am the cure

Last Sunday, I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. My friends and family donated money, and together, we raised $166 for the Komen foundation! I had grand ideas of running the 5k – which I feel is well within my capabilities, but I’ve been battling some kind of crazy flu/sinus disaster, and it just wasn’t happening. But with pocket full of cough drops and some bottled water, I walked it just fine.

This leads me to my real point. I feel like I’m never going to lose any weight. I am so unmotivated about it. I go to the gym basically so I can keep eating what I want. This is not the formula for weight loss. I care, but I don’t. I care enough to keep going to the gym. But I don’t care enough to not eat pumpkin pie. I LOVE pumpkin pie. I use Cool Whip light on top – that helps, right?

Anyway, my dad gave me some hoodia – weight loss pills. I think they are an appetite suppressant. But, I can’t take them because it says don’t take if you’re CONSIDERING getting pregnant. That’s ominous, right? I’ve also got some hydroxycut, but haven’t taken it for the same reason.

I do want to lose weight before I get pregnant again. But I love the pumpkin pie. And mashed potatoes. And ramen noodles. I mean, really.

  1. Well keep up the good work with walking and running. I started with a 5K and went on to train for the 1/2 marathon. I did two of them 8 weeks apart. 2 halves make a whole, right? I hear you on the eating habits. I just lost a few pounds with weight watchers, but honestly I just ate ginger snaps for breakfast so I have a long way to go! :)

  2. Enjoy the pie. I have a feeling you are pretty gorgeous just the way you are!

  3. I think I’d have the pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and noodles and perhaps cut back on the foods that are not particularly good for you. After all pumpkin and potatoes are veggies and/or fruit are they not.

  4. I like the way you girls think!
