Just what I thought...

So right before starting this blog I said to myself "I will not leave this blog unwritten for more than a week or 2 weeks" and look what happened. I did just that. I just don't feel like writing these days and I know thats not a good thing, so today, I promised that I would put a few words here about what I have been upto. My current mission is to lose alll (well not all but some) of the weight I have gained in the last 7 months. I didn't realize it until I came here and my mom and sister told me how big I got. All my jeans and pants are laying happily inside the closet, folded and everything. They don't fit. I need to stop losing and gaining weight all the time. I need to keep it off in a stable manner but as a girl, its hard. Emotions and all kinds of stuff take over and the only place where I can find solace is the fridge. So anyways, I have started doing some exercising but my body's gotten so rigid that a few moves and I am sore as a ...throat? I don't know, I need to really straighten up my act and get into shape. I am turning 26 and I don't want to look 36. Argh. So thats the physical fitness part. I am loving the weather in Oman now...the rain, the semi-cool breeze, the sun...the mixture is great, considering I came from layers and layers of blistering stark white. I saw a movie last night that I had but didn't get the time to watch, The Constant Gardener. Ah, what an amazing movie! I was in shambles after it ended. Its worth watching. Okay so I will write more soon, until then, take care:)

Hey honey, you are only 26 so I think if you can get motivated and start working out now you wouldn't be in my situation when you get older. As soon as I turned 30 - everything went bad, I gained a staggering 35 pounds in 2 yrs and I tell you its HARD to lose weight the older you get. Please dont think I am trying to put you down or be preachy or anything of a sort. Its really hard to stay focused and I have a horrible sweet tooth *sigh* I hope you find the encourgement you need and get fit - but do it for your health, not because someone said you are fat. As long as you are healthy - that's what matters the most then being a size -0 or something unrealistic like that. I am trying to lose weight because my family has a history of cardiac problems and I don't want to go down the same path. Good luck! I wish you the best.
