Losing Weight; Finding Men

Game Face On

I was looking back and saw my one year gym-versary has passed. Interestingly I weigh a few pounds more than I did last February. Sigh. Ah well, now is now. And then was then.

I have challenged myself to up the ante with my workouts. Thanks to some fantastic advice from my dear friend studying to be a trainer (not the flake!), I have adjusted my time with the treadmill and the weights. The scary thing is, it feels good and it feels right.

I've been flirting with a guy online for about a week. He's been away in New Mexico on vacation, so really not a typical glimpse of who he might be, but so far, he's really nice and flirty. He's back at work this week so we'll see if he finds the time to meet. He doesn't seem at all concerned about the weekend coming up as Valentine's Day.

Today I saw He's Just Not That Into You (funny new intro about Chick Flick cliches from the guys in the movie to the guys that might go see the movie; probably only girls will watch the clip) and I'm glad for the reminder that "If a guy is interested in you, he will call." After waiting more than a year for it to come out, it was a little disappointing. Still funny, but not as much as I was hoping for.

Of course, I also felt like if things are that tough for thin women, how is it that I am even hoping to find someone? Someone once mentioned to me that "Maybe not all that is wrong with me has to be due to my weight." *snort* OK yeah. Let's go with that. Want to trade bodies? No, I didn't think so.

That's some game face!!

I, for one, am looking forward to your date this weekend. I'm lliving vicariously through you after all. I'm not allowed to go on dates anymore. Being married really cramps my style where dating is concerned.

I think if things are that hard for thin women, then maybe it's just more a flaw in the men and less a flaw in me. Maybe the weight (although I'm sure still an issue) isn't as big an issue as I thought it was.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
