I guess I am getting old because to me this resolution thing is just a set up to fail, and personally I don't feel like failing at anything else right now. So, no resolutions for me. I am still drinking diet coke, eating chocolate, cheeseburgers, and french fries. I am still not exercising 3-5 times per week. I still am not spending enough time doing the things I "should". I hate expectations....They wear me out.

One of these days I hope to have the will power and the strength to stand up to myself and say enough is enough. Until that day, though, I will try to be patient with myself when I look in the mirror. I will try to convince myself that I have had a lot going on in the last eighteen years since my size five days. I will try to convince myself that my big rear is a badge of honor. I will try to convince myself that it is ok to be real, what ever that means, on days like today.

Happy New Year! Here's to no expectations!

I couldn't have said it better myself Shellie.

Ok girls, lets get real. We need to stop with these unrealistic expectations. Enjoy life, enjoy food, enjoy the fact that you have people in your life that love you dearly for who you are, not how much you weigh.

Now excuse me while I go eat my chocolate/chocolate chip muffin from Costco.

Good for you! Thanks for saying what we all(or most of us)feel.
We are who we are and not what someone else thinks we should be.
Let's be content with that.
