Love is so unhealthy

I used to be fatter than I am now…

See? Yuck, I was frumpy and lazy and didn’t take care of myself. It disgusted me. I started going to watch Colby in karate and it looked like so much fun kicking things and hitting things…I wanted to do it too. (I’m a little violent apparently lol). So, I started taking it too in the adult class. In just a couple of months of going twice a week I could see a difference in my body. I hadn’t really changed what I was eating at the time either. I got to thinking, what if I went more than twice a week and started just eating a little different…

I found a different gym that I could go to as much as I wanted, I got into doing more mixed martial arts and grappling. I loved it!! I’d go four or five times a week and I had started eating just until I didn’t feel hungry anymore instead of eating until I was about to bust. It worked. In less than a year this is what happened…

But then… Robert came along. I wanted to spend time with him so I slacked off on working out. We ate out…a lot. We still were pretty active, we golfed a lot and were on the go, but still the weight crept back on. It’s been almost three years since I have regularly worked out and did any martial arts and I have gained back almost 20 pounds. I’m disgusted again.

It’s hard to get motivated to lose it now though because Robert likes me the way I am and is not at all turned off by my squishiness. The thought of grappling again makes me nervous though. I don’t really want to do that now, I wussed up some and I don’t want to have bruises all over me anymore. I liked kicking things though so I’m trying to find something like that to do. I want to be back like I was when I met Robert. I never will be a size four…Robert wouldn’t like that either, but a 10 would be nice.

Last week I started drinking 80-100 ounces of water everyday again, and trying to eat more sensibly, but I know the real bulk of weight loss comes from exercising and I have got to find something fun that doesn’t feel like exercise… Any suggestions?
