Awwwwww!!! Ain't love grand!!!

Thursday, 15 January 2009

I wonder if I would lose weight more easily if I were single and looking for love. Mind you I'd rather be fat and have my honey than be thin and without him ... if that were the choice, but it recently occurred to me that I was more motivated to be and stay slim when I was single and lonely and wanted to attract the opposite sex. Once I settled into my relationship however, I slowly began to put on weight and to compound things, I didn't concern myself with my growing girth because ... well ... I was happy in love and James didn't care about my weight gain like some of the men I'd dated before surely would have.

Obviously, I'm not suggesting that the only reason to be thin or stay thin is to gain or keep a man's love, nor am I making a comment about whether fat people are attractive or not, or worthy of love etc. I'm simply pondering where the steely determination and motivation that I once had to fight and conquer the fat demon, has gone.

Anyway, New Year!!! Plenty of opportunity to make headway towards 55kgs., and there's not better time to get started than the present, wouldn't you say?
