My High School Reunion

My 20 year high school reunion is rearing its ugly head at me.  I knew it was coming but until the committee actually announced a date, I wasn't going to think about it.  Well, they did indeed set a date...in October of this year.  What does that mean?  

My 50 pound weight loss goal now has an official deadline.  

In October.  

I want to show up at least 5 pounds less than what I weighed in high school.  And unfortunately that puts me around 50 pounds that I have to lose.  Yes, I'm that chick that wants to go back and show everyone else up.  Make all of those former crushes wish they had actually done something about it at the time because LOOK AT ME NOW!

Do I actually want any of them now? 

No.

I just want them to want me.  Is that so wrong?  

The truth is that's just my ego talking.  At the end of the day I could really care less about whether or not they want me.  I'm in love with my Special Someone, and all signs point to him being in love with me too...including him verbally expressing it so....that's all I need and want.  And for me, that means that all other males become androgynous.  Ok, ok...I'm human.  I'm sure there are some that will still turn my head although I can't think of anyone specific at the moment.  For the most part, however, it's my guy or nothing.  (He'll probably be relieved to hear that, although I'm still not sure that sentiment works both ways).

Back to the weight loss dilemma...well, I've realized that the reunion was coming up since the end of last year, so to ensure my goal it probably would have been wise to have started then.  I did join a gym....and went exactly 2 times.  I actually injured myself the 2nd time (pretty much blew out both quads), but I never went back after my quads healed. That's a whole different blog post.  And now it's almost March and I have a little over 5 months to get my act together.

But it's going to have to start tomorrow.  Tonight I have girls's night...and wings...and fruity adult beverages to partake in.....
