What have I done for ME lately?

Well, i haven't exercised much since my illness, other than stepping on the elliptical a couple of times. i've been letting the excuses pile up. i feel awful for it, but i was doing it. i decided that i don't want to let the weight loss of my illness go to waste.

i'm pagan. My group did a ritual last night, and one of the things we did was bless all the seeds that we'll be planting in the spring. Some of them will be started indoors as little as two weeks from now. i asked my group to sacrifice something important to them, but which was ultimately not good, as a way of "giving energy" to the seeds. i chose to give up all my excuses for not exercising. For one month, i am religiously and spiritually bound to not have any excuses. So i got on the elliptical today. It was only 15 minutes, but it wasn't excuses.

i also did something else. Having watched the Dannon yoghurt commercial with the "itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka-dot bikini" about 80 times a day, i decided to pull out something that i really want to wear. i am officiating at one of my group members' wedding in June. Two years ago, sis bought me a dress, a Rennaisance gown in deep blue, and it was tight when i got it, and instead of losing weight, i gained. i know i need to get below 180 to wear it. i'm 195 now. i have basically three months to lose it. With 8 lbs a month as a respectable and yet healthy weight loss, i would be down to about 175 lbs. i could fit, at 175. So ... i hung the dress up on my closet door, on the outside. i'll have to look at it every day, several times a day. There's my short term goal for the next little while.

That's what i've done for me...
