Me Versus Three Pounds

It's not even about the weight anymore.

It's about the principle.  

There are these three pounds that have been hanging around for a little over two years now.  They ebb, they flow, but they are pretty much always there.  AND I CAN'T GET RID OF THEM.

I've done Jillian Michaels.  I've broken out the treadmill.  I've done Weight Watchers.  I've started eating vegetables.

I've willed them away, with all my might.

But alas, they suck on me like a leach.  Only they aren't sucking anything out.  They just sit there.

There's this voice in my head that says, Aw, just let them stay.  What's the big deal?  Why deprive yourself of a glass of wine that is only 150 calories?  Life is short!  It's only three pounds, for God's sake!  

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, NO I SAY!  I shall not let them win!

Hear ye, hear ye, from this point forward, I shall run every day until every last ounce of that last third pound is off.  I will run like Forrest Gump.  I will run like the wind.

I probably shouldn't have eaten McDonalds today (the fries, oh the fries).

But I'm going to run, damn it.

  3. Baby #2 has done it to me too! Right now I have ten extra, which I am hoping turns into five or so after at stop nursing. I'm even running and the weight is just stuck. Ugh.

  5. I know, right? Except add a zero to the end of that "3" pounds, and change the "glass of wine" to be "bottle of wine." Heh.

  7. I believe in you! I believe in you because I believe in myself. If I can do it, than it's gotta be a piece of cake (but don't think about cake)!

    Maybe what you need, is a 200 mile relay race to train for. They're an amazing experience and help me shed the pounds when I sit and stare at a computer for 8 hours a day. Just an unsolicited idea I thought I'd throw in there. :)

    Although, I think the 8 Hershey's kisses and half gallon of ice cream I just ate are having the same effect as your McDonald's Fries.
