You Turn me On I’m A Radio…Station! 199.5! Yikes!

Ok! It’s seriously time to get my butt in gear!  Spring is very here and I have no excuse to be weighing in at an unfabulous 199.5 lbs on my scale this cloudy Sunday morning.  I’m a radio station! Yikes! What has happened to my twinkish figure!

Anyone who knows me, knows I have struggled with weight since I stopped dancing back in the 90’s. As much as I have tried to jump start a healthy lifestyle I seem to be missing the boat and over time I find myself turning into a small floating device!

Maybe it’s Karma coming back to bite me in the arse for all my jokes about others who were horizontally challenged. So I officially say “universe I am sorry I am such a jerk and I take back all the fat jokes I have ever uttered. Ok most of my fat jokes. Ok who am I kidding! But still, my preoccupation with weight has gone way back really. Once I lost all my added pounds in my 20’s, everyone seem to watch even closer to see when I was going to gain them all back and then some.  I have even made every partner I have ever had become obsessed with there weight and for that I do feel bad.  I hope they realize how beautiful they really are just being who they are.

Well readers “I Am Coming Out!” Out of the shame closet and into a time of spring cleaning. Metaphorically of course. It’s time I look into my own growing trunk and get this weight off once and for all.  Knowing me if I don’t get it out and onto my blog I may never get it together.

I did get the ball rolling with yoga and I will continue that exploration but who am I kidding cuddling to the cracker dish in bed is my dirty little secrete, among other food indiscretions.  I challenge you to do the same.  Be honest about what you put in your mouth.  I have put some really unacceptable things in my mouth over the years and it has finally caught up to me.

I am going to log my results here for everyone to see (weekly).  Don’t believe what the media tells you. Men do care about their weight. It is the shame that does not allow them to change and to act nonchalant about their gut! Let’s face it, if a man admits the desire for change with their health it is seen as an act of weakness.  Many a man have gone to the grave because of the fear of shame.

The goal is 41 pounds in 68 days! Just in time for the official kick off to Toronto’s Pride Week 2012, June 22ND! I’m not sure the goal is completely realistic but the point is I am going to work my butt off to shed some pounds before the big week and so off I go for my morning walk down the Don Valley with Joni Mitchell on my “I Pod”

Join me and shed some pounds with me! I will post my updates weekly at the end of my weekly article! Post your comments and let me know how you are doing! We can do it together! Who’s with me let me know! Post your comments today!

Wish me luck!  Now to get rid of all this Easter chocolate!
