I'm On a Mission!

Day 1 in "Operation Drop 7!"
I'm on a mission. It's not well thought out...but it's an attempt. I'll be leaving for New York in a short time, less than a month for my sister-in-laws wedding, (I've never been before.) I'm pretty excited to get the chance to be there for their special day...not to mention I'll get to spend time with my son, Jullien who's been living there since he was 17 modeling (21 now.)

So, what's my mission...drop 7lbs in a couple of weeks & get in shape. This is very typical of me, everything is always last minute (I tell myself, "That's when you do your best work, under the gun!") When I was younger (before 40) dropping weight was easy. I usually never carried too much extra lbs. and the little I did have just came off quickly with a little exercise. Well now at the age of 40+ things are a little harder. The first problem is my apparent lack of will power. I love my sweets and my midnight bowl of cereal. But in my mind, if I exercise and cut back on my dessert, I should lose it right?

Well, we shall see...I'm walking the dog and doing 30 minutes on the stair stepper each night & floor exercises (not enough will power, time or energy to go to the gym yet.) All this as opposed to the nothing I was doing before. Let's go weight...I need a miracle!lol!

I'm sure you'll look marvellous as you are.

Whenever I wish to loose weight I have to go the hard way: low carb, low fat, low calorie, low sugar - low everything Excercise is wonderful, but in my case it doesn't make me drop even one gram.

Anyway, good luck to you in achieving your goal of dropping 7 lb.

Looking good! In any attempt, be careful with your back! Don't over-work yourself.. :) Hope you'll get to the size you wanted before the wedding :)

It is stylish and comfy, great with a pair of jeans and go out in it. Some guys asked me where to get mens leather jackets in such style from I am very pleased with this jacket, right size and it is the style I wanted for a long time. Leather is quite soft and I am sure it is genuine.
