I have a few events coming up that you’d think would spur me into action on this whole weight loss thing. Next weekend is my 15-year grade school reunion, and I’ll be seeing 10-12 of the 23 kids I graduated with a decade and a half ago (where has the time gone?!). The good news is, I could only improve from my junior high days. The bad news is I really thought I’d be at least 10 pounds lighter than I am now when the reunion came around. Why can’t I stick with it??
I also have a family wedding coming up in November and the whole clan is going to Charleston and staying in a beach house. I can’t wait! You’d think the prospect of squeezing into a bathing suit in front of my gorgeous extended family would be motivation enough (seriously, I am the ONLY ONE who wouldn’t fit right in as a catalog model). You’d be wrong.
Maybe I can still salvage this situation for my Christmas cards. I know it’s still only October, but I am a Christmas nut and I can’t wait for the holidays. I am also one of *those* people who send photo cards despite not having any spawn. My dogs are cute enough to grace my photo cards, and I look forward to getting photos of people of all ages, so I’ve decided it’s acceptable for me to send them.
Here are some I’m considering from Shutterfly:
That third one is my favorite–monograms and dots make me happy!
The good news is I have two months to really put some effort into losing weight before Christmas. The bad news is that I was hoping to take our Christmas picture on the beach in two weeks. Eek.
On a happy note, I have a new plan for 2012, and it’s lifted my spirits incredibly. I will write more about it tomorrow!
