Drastic Measures

I Am as Cute as the HASAY Baby

Every week (that's 19 weeks) when I place Casey's adorable child's picture in my update post, I say to myself, "he's such a cutie pie. Those arms and round tummy are so cute, I just want to squeeze him"!

Only this week, I was sitting on the floor of my bathroom clipping my nails, facing my full length mirror, when I reached up to get the lotion.....I saw that I look almost exactly like him! I have that cute horizontal line underneath my sweet little boobs. My tummy is round and sticks out just like his. The arms? Identical, I swear. The only noticeable difference is my hair. (I took a picture of myself to show you, only Google would have shut down my massive revenue stream for that one, to be sure). The only problem is that the look is NOT SO CUTE on a 51-year old woman. But a picture is worth a thousand words and I have it pinned on my desk next to the computer to help me become successful in this old diet.

This week I am going to write everything down and share it with you next week. I have been good so far today, but hey, it's only been 9 hours.

I exercised 4 times this week, but for me, this amount doesn't even allow me to maintain weight. I know.......that does suck.

Having a period every two weeks and shedding like a 14-year old girl isn't helping either. The doctor thinks I'm just about at "the end". Yeah, now that would be cause for a celebration...of celery and low fat peanut butter, of course.

Original HASAY weight: 135 pounds
Current weight: 132 pounds

I'm kind of interested to see the google hits you get on "sweet little boobs".

Hang in there!

I smell some exaggeration here, but here's to renewed motivation!

I'd love to be able to tell myself my Buddha belly is actually endearing. Good luck this week with the food documentation and such. Get to sweating.

I'm sure your picture was of the cute variety and you're exaggerating. If I worked out that often, I'd be HAWT so I'm really sorry that it's not giving you the results that you want. I hope your Dr figures out your frequent Aunt Flow visits and you can get back on track. Here's to another great HASAY week!

I really hope that HASAY is long gone before Graham is old enough to realize that I posed his Buddha belly picture all over the web.

It's not that bad. You make yourself seem awful. She's actually a beautifully mature woman - maybe a little loose in a few places but an amazing person. Keep thinking positive - those yoga/pilates people will help.
