They didn't call me...

Well, you know, I am a big girl. Emotionally and physically.  I applied to a local "Biggest Loser" type of contest, because, well, I am huge. The "powers that be" must have agreed, because they called me for a final interview.  I was in the running for the prize, they narrowed it down to 5 people at each location and were going to pick 3 people per gym.  They wanted to meet each of us before choosing and said they would call and let me know either way.

What was the prize?  Well, a year's gym membership complete with weekly personal training.  This is indeed a prize for a big girl like me.  I wanted it, and I didn't get it, but the worst part is that I had to find out by reading the Explorer Newspaper and looking online.  I mean I get it.  I am less of a person because I am huge, under-confident and shy, so why follow up.  (I get that I am being a bit reactionary and silly.) 

I told myself, that whether I got this opportunity or not, I would join the gym, and I was going to join at Anytime Fitness, and I also told myself I would start this blog.  SO... The blog exists now.  However, in this disappointed place I find myself now, I have decided to check out my options regarding which gym I will join.  (They said they would call either way. Call me old fashioned, call me a sore loser, but it would have been nice to have gotten a phone call with the bad news.)

I named the blog, Just you wait Henry Higgins, just you wait, but it should be just you wait Anytime Fitness, just you wait. (Because I will show you!)

The truth is, I don't know if I can do it.  

I want to lose 90 pounds in the year 2012.  But I have a lot against me.  My history with weight being number one.  

So, I invite whomever would like to, to join me on this trek.  Should be fun.  I will be checking out gyms in the Oro Valley area and reviewing them during the conclusion of 2011 and joining one of them in 2012.

Wish me luck!

  1. Dammit! I posted a rockin comment and it didn't go through. I am in. I've gained a butt load since having my kids and been bitter about it but beentoo down to do anything about it. Let's work together. I hear its easier if you have a partner. We can get together for hikes AKA Bataan death marches, classes or just encourage each other. Please? Ps. Thanks for saying out loud that you wanna make changes. Shy, maybe. Brave, absolutely!
