Here's the thing.
Here's the thing, I'm slowly turning into my husband because he starts 70% of his conversations with the phrase "here's the thing." But really, Here's the thing.
I want to lose like a lot of weight this week. You do to? So let's do it.
Here's the thing. I figure if I can let the laundry creep up the wall for a month, then knock it all out in a weekend, then surely I can lose 9 lbs in one week, thereby totally redeeming my self and securely placing my butt right smack dab in the middle of the pack. (what? I wore this cardigan 3 days ago? What? These cropped jeans don't go with my dansko's, what?) Lay off, I'm a professional procrastinator.
Here's the thing, if I'm going to be a WILF by my 30th birthday, I've got to get crackin' because November is going to be here in a flash. Hello, the Summer solstice was yesterday!
ah-k, here's the plan.
We all lose enough weight this week to put us into the next set of 10's. For instance, if you're 229, you've got to lose 10 lbs to put you into the "two-teens" if you're 161, you've got to lose 2 lbs to put you into the 150's. If you're 305 you've got to lose 6 lbs to put you into the 290's. Some of us have a lot to lose, some a little, but regardless, let's allow ourselves push beyond our mental boundaries of whatever weight bracket we're in. We all think we know our limits, but when was the last time we really tested them? Like reeeeeealllllllly tested them?
I think the most weight I've lost ever in a week is about 3.5 lbs. I'm not suggesting that's bad...not at all. In fact, it's great! But, I know deep down I can do better. So here's your chance to dig deep and figure out what you're made of.
Also, this is the perfect way to totally redeem my self for the past 3 weeks I called "trying."
PS-I'm not suggesting anyone go about weight loss in an unhealthy way. What I am suggesting, is that (for me) I have a lot more in me than a measly 1 lb loss every other week. It's just pathetic, let's call it like it is. I want to lose weight not just think about it and how great it would be. If you feel the same way, then climb aboard.
UPDATE: PSS- Really, I'm not suggesting that anyone freak out on me and take laxitives or diet pills just to break their 10 lb bracket. I'm just saying, that I think if we take a good hard look, chances are we'll find room for improvement. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Anyone who gets out of their 10 lb bracket will be entered into a drawing for next week's prize. It's a fun prize, so put on your shoes and shake, shake, shake that shake weight!
