Patricia £: Disappointing mothers since 1975



;)
I know. I'm a trouble maker. I Rather be that than a bore.
So I'm a year older and the celebrations are still going. We are still getting together for a Bday dinner and family is coming over from the north in a few weeks. Turning 35 didn't hurt as I expected but seeing some of the pictures did. Don't get me wrong, I love my beautiful old self, but in some of the pics it looks like a maternity ward should be near me...yikes! I told the oldest kid who was possing as a photographer for the day:

me:"Oldest, why on earth didnt you tell me to hold my belly in?! I look awful."
Oldest: laughing "it's a camera not a magic drawing board...what do you want me to say? Hold the gut in ma' -you are looking fat?"
Me:"yehaaaaaaaa"



side view...

And then it hit me: no matter what pose I take, I am fat-actually obese if you follow those pesky guides. I did promise the Dr. to loose 30lbs. UGH. Anyone wants to sponsor a liposuction?
anyone?

I have said before in front of the kid that I wanted to do better, so being the annoying know it all 18yr old he has challenge me to take a healthier living: no more coke, no more eating out (after my birthday celebration next weekend!), portion control-this one is actually easy, and no sweets...WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTT...oh hecks nooooooooooo.
Stomping feet on ground, no, no, no, no!!!!!

So here I am doing my new year resolution on the anniversary of my birthday. After all, what better day to live a better life? I have an injured knee that is not getting better and the fact that I'm carrying the extra weight doesn't help much either. I get winded from walking a flight of stairs...I'm only 35 for Pete's sake!!! I should be better and I WILL do better. The plan is also to dance for now to get some cardio in and then buy a "Zumba" Dvd. This is not going to be a diet blog but I will post my progress here. I feel if I write about it I will have to own up to it. Would I succeed this time? I hope so.


more than half this cake is still on my fridge...and I wont eat it :(

what can I say? he wuws me!


the kid was: "c'mom look at the distance" and I'm "where in the distance?"
hecks, at least he would have something to say to his therapist.
AND FINALLY...THE PROOF


THAT JUST BECAUSE I'M 35 I'M NOT GOING TO MATURE!!!!
-at the risk of braking a leg. Wish me luck. I'm going to need it.

Over & out
P.S I got my HUNTER BOOTS!!!!!!!

Hi, I found your blog from Susie Harris' Bienvenue. I was caught by this post and will read more now. I too struggle with my weight and have a bad knee. I've been trying to do better this past month, with some improvement but it is a struggle still. Wishing you lots of success and 'baby steps'.

You are a lovely young mother, extra weight or not. But it is good to feel physically better too.
