My Scale

Oh Geez...here it is, My Picture of ME today!

 
Oh Lord Almighty!

This picture was taken last night by one of my singers!  That is me just about 10 pounds lighter than when I started this journey just 5 short weeks ago!!  Can I get a "gag me!"
How is it, I can look in a mirror and think I look better than I do!  I mean, I was feeling pretty good about myself last night.  Well, if this doesn't instill in me why I am on this journey in the first place!

Here I am a person that is blessed enough to walk red carpets, go to events like private parties at the White House, Emmy Awards and the soon to be Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductions Ceremony.  I walk around with glamorous "fit"  and famous people.  Then there is insignificant out of shape me!  Can I get a "hell NO!"

I can not wait till I am reading this again in a few months and can be reminded of what I looked like.  As much as this is brutally painful for me to see, its a steel toed boot in my ass!  I am not going to stop this journey, it is simply one of the cornerstones along the path.

Ironically, a gentleman singer came up to me last night and asked "I don't mean to interrupt you, but did you lose a whole lot of weight?"   That felt so good, I was in a great mood last night because of it.  When I think about it, about 3 years ago I was 204 pounds.  I had lost 22 pounds with the help of my daugther, Michelle.
Somewhere I lost touch and gained nearly all of it back.  Lets face it, if I didn't decide to make this change in January, I would probably be at 204 right now.  I was just 6 pounds shy of that.

Okay, I am glad I have this picture.  It keeps me in check.  It reminds me how important my life change matters and how vitally important it is that I am going to Fitness Ridge in April.

My goal in the end, is to wear a sleeveless gown to the Emmy awards in September.  I promise you, if I can get to that figure by then, I will be definitely going to the Emmy's.  (Right Alan?)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!  

Thanks for listening!!

(((Hugs to All)))

I dont know you well enough to grant you milf status but you will do wonderful here. Now send me some new lyrics because I cant bring myself to put Kanye on my blog :) Most anyone in the R&R hall of fame will do. Good Luck these last 6 weeks getting ready.

LOL, you're cracking me up here. There is nothing wrong with that picture at all!!!

You're on your way to making positive changes so all is good no matter what the outer self looks like. You are an amazing being inside and out. Take pride and joy in everything you are, and continue to move forward with your physical goals and they will be icing on the cake!

Here's to sleeveless Emmy's in September! Cheers.

"How is it, I can look in a mirror and think I look better than I do!" Funny how we all look at ourselves like that - When I look in the mirror I see myself like I was when I was younger only "a little" rounder - then I see a refection in a mall window and say who the heck is that fat person and where did she come from! - but really, as Annelise said there is nothing wrong with that picture, it's just not how you want to be and you are really doing great to get where you want to be. I hope I soon get the gusto up to do as much ahead of my trip as you are doing! Have fun in AC!

Cat you are the greatest! I can't wait to meet you at Fitness Ridge. I love reading your blogs because you crack me up! I don't think there is anything wrong with your picture, but I know how you feel and I think you are very brave for posting it. You give me the courage I need to follow in your footsteps. You are my hero! Have a great trip and win big.

What a great blog post! I cannot wait to see your picture of you at the Emmy's!!

Robin said...

Cat, first of all...I LOVE your name. Second, I just finished up my 4 week stay at FR on February 7th and it is going to change your life forever. The first week was tough but there are so many supportive people around you, you feel empowered to stay and stick it out. I did it for myself and couldn't have been prouder. You are going to gain some great friends and come back a new woman! Best of luck to you and I'll be reading your blog to see how things go. If you ever have any questions, feel free to write.

Cat: I love reading your blog because I love your attitude. I have been reading about all of your accomplishments, and continue to be inspired by you. You look great, and if you keep doing what you're doing, you will absolutely look great for the Emmys.

I get it!!!! A christmas picture is exactly what is sending me to Fitness Ridge!! It does not matter how many people tell you "Oh you look fine" but it is what YOU feel when you look at that picture. But we have control even though at times we feel out of control....Looking forward to this journey!! See you at the Ridge!
