Let’s get real

So I had a realization the other day, a bad realization. The kind of reality that makes me want to crawl into bed. In my 33 years I never thought I would utter these words but… I’m the fat friend!! You know the one in the picture with a swimsuit cover-up on while your other friends stand around in their bikinis, completely proud of their bodies. They should be. They’re working hard on them while I sit here like a lump on a log.

My BFF is skinny and my other friend just lost 40 pounds. My cousin works out like constantly, my soon to be sis-in-law is working out for the wedding and my mom is super skinny from working out almost everyday. I am seeing a trend 😉 Working out might be good for you.

SO… JT, the kids and I joined the Y. Not just any Y. A new fancy, shiny one. We took a tour last night and I am so excited. Our membership kicks in on April 1st and my plan is to drop L off at school and head over to start my workout. I’m very happy that that we joined someplace with classes, a pool, a gym and we have friends from school that are members so L is happy about that.

I know it’s a good choice and maybe in a couple of months I won’t be the fat friend anymore. Perfect timing for swimsuit season. I’ll never be in a bikini again, but a pretty two piece will be just fine.

    Classes are the best route for me. They tell you when you have to be there, how long you have to be there, and how long.

    It’s all about perspective since I feel like the fat friend compared to you! I admire your commitment since I’m still eating like I was when I was pregnant…

    I just had to laugh because you are so NOT fat! But I know everyone feels and thinks their flaws are worse than everyone else. Have fun at the Y, I think you will enjoy going with your fam. I’m excited to start losing weight after Nick gets here too.
