Reasons To Lose Weight - #10

Summer is coming. The weather has warmed up, I'm not having to wear three layers of clothing and bulky sweaters to work every day. Thank goodness.

Now, however, I am starting to think about my summer wardrobe, hidden away in a trunk in the spare room. And I am afraid.

I'm 7 pounds heavier than I was at the beginning of last summer. That may not sound like much, but when you are 5 feet tall, there's not a lot of space for 7 extra pounds to hide out. I'm afraid that my clothes are not going to fit me.

I have reason to be afraid. I have jeans that I was able to wear last summer that are now too tight.

So what do you all think? Can I get rid of 7 lbs before summer rolls around?

I think you can lose 7 pounds in the next couple months. Keep watching to food intake and exercise regularly and you can do it.

Javachick - of COURSE you can lose a measly 7 lbs before summer! The Bag Lady will actually put her mind to losing weight along with you. Does that help? (Of course, the Bag Lady needs to lose a lot more than 7 lbs, so that doesn't sound like too much!) The Bag Lady has several outfits she would like to wear this summer, so the challenge is on!!
I won't tell you how much I weigh (I only LOOK stupid!) but I will tell you how much I lose...okay?

Thank you ladies.

Bag Lady - Thank you for your offer, I definitely think it will help. You don't have to say how much you weigh.

So the challenge is on!

You can do it!!!! Now why do I have memories of many Adam Sandler movies in my mind... lol

Ahhhh... the curse of the short people - I am 5'4". Small numbers do show quite easily... But... you are going to knock them to the curb!!! :)

That also means small numbers will be more noticeable when they come off. Of course you can do it!!!!
