And Now I Understand What My Problem Is!

I have been agonizing over the fact that I have been gaining weight.

And then today I got the email below and I had a real aha! moment. Now I know the reason for my misfortune. I knew that the amount of food I have been consuming and the lack of exercise, could not possibly be the reasons.

I just discovered this important info below. Please share with all your friends.
I don’t know WHY I didn’t figure this out sooner!!!!!
It’s the shampoo I use in the shower!
When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and (duh!)
Printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning,
“FOR EXTRA VOLUME AND BODY.”
No WONDER I have been gaining weight!!!
Well! I have gotten rid of that shampoo and I am going to start using Dawn    dish soap instead. Its label reads:

“DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE.”

Problem solved! If I don’t answer the phone . . . I’ll be in the shower!

See you guys later. I am off to buy some dish soap! I could use some weight loss fairies.

Or some Joy.

Want to Lose Weight? Buy New Clothing.

I don’t know how it is for others. For me it seems to be a no fail plan. I go out, spend a fortune some money on new clothing and then I seem to find the motivation to stop stuffing my face start watching my food intake.

I was thinking about it (something I do way too often) and came to the conclusion that it is probably not that simple.

It’s kind of like the which came first, the chicken or the egg, debate. Do you lose weight because you have bought new clothing that fits you and you feel good wearing them? Or did you buy the clothing in the first place because you were feeling better about yourself and that feeling better was the impetus for the clothing buying and the weight losing? (You might need to reread that a few times for it to make sense.)

Or maybe it’s a little bit of both rolled into one. Either way, it doesn’t matter. I had enough of the uncomfortable feeling of mushing my fat rolls every time I sit down. (And yes, I know, too much information.)

I am slowly getting back on the band wagon. It is not easy physically or mentally but I feel a bit lighter both mentally and physically.

Wish me luck.

Do you find that buying clothing is a good way to find the motivation to lose weight?

Accountability: Does It Help Or Hinder?

I know what needs to be done.

I know why I want to do it.

I know how I feel now.

I know how I will feel if I get my bum in gear and do it.

"Quick Fit" - The completely effortless aerobics workout

And yet, I drag my feet.

I have one false start after another.

So does accountability help or hinder? How many times have I told myself, my family and the world that this is it?

I think once I myself am fully on board I don’t need the accountability. So the question remains. When I am still on shaky ground does knowing I have put myself out there with a statement help me or hinder my efforts?

What do you guys think?
