Random Thoughts on Weight Loss

I joined a health club recently. Well, it is attached to a local public university (Division I-AA athletic school). I was looking at the types of people that are in the locker room, and here is how I categorize them:

1. College-aged women who we should all hate: most are blond, skinny gorgeous.
2. Middle-aged women who are fat.
3. Older-women who are skinny.

And I am not in any of these groups. So I am a misfit here. I am almost middle-aged, and I have about 10 pounds to lose. Now there are more than these types on campus, but that's the people that come to the gym. Not sure why that is so – do fatter older women die, or do they just hide inside. And I sort of feel sorry for the fatties. How are they ever going to lose all of that fat? At least they are trying. The only complaint I have is that they sweat on the equipment more than the skinny women.

You know, God does not play fair. I am 10 pounds overweight, and it is basically hanging onto me as a small pouch in my tum-tum. Why can't the extra fat be distributed to my breasts? I mean, when women lose weight, which is the first place it comes from (at least Oprah says so; she has to be an expert on the subject). Of course, I have heard, "Be careful what you wish for, it may come true." It would be horrible to go from C to double-D if 10 pounds equates to that many cup size changes.

My hubbie would probably outwardly be a little shocked, but he would burry his face in my newfound roundness if this happened.

I have read a few of your posts and I really enjoy the genial nature of your writing. It is comfortable and pleasant to me. I am an avid reader and certain literary tones feel like stepping into a warm shower, or coming home after an arduous trip. It just feels comfortable. I get this from your writing and thought that I would share that with you.

I like your picture, but I'd love to see more. Do plan on posting any other pictures of yourself? (Not nude, just showing more of yourself) Curious.

All:

Thanks for your warm responses to my little blog. At this time, I don't want to post any more pictures of me. The pic I did post is a couple of years old (and the shades sort of hide who I am). I think if I post more pics, someone might recognise me. And being a good Catholic girl, this would be unacceptable.

Why do you think those Curves fitness clubs are suddenly so popular? All the women who don't want to be grunting next to those perky college blonds have made these women-only gyms a big success.
