This is EXACTLY how I felt today.
I am sure NO ONE cares about California people complaining about crappy weather considering this is what our winter’s look like:
….but seriously, it was friggin disgusting outside today. It was sticky, humid, super hot, really cloudy and rainy. WTF was that?! In addition, I straightened my hair so you knowwwww what that means, ladies. FUZZY HEAD GROSS HAIR. The weather today did remind me though how much I would love to be 20 pounds lighter that way I could FINALLY (for the first time ever) be that girl who is like “OMG I LOVE HOT WEATHER! BREAK OUT THE SHORT SHORTS EVERYONE! LET’S GO TO THE BEACH.” For the past 28.75 years I have responded like this when people ask me to go to the beach to lay out and take in the rays:
unless of course there is a huge umbrella, a sheet to lay on, cold drinks and another girl there that is equally uncomfortable about being half naked at the beach and wants to look at magazines with me.
Seriously though, it’s time. It’s time for me to embrace my body no matter what I look like and feeling happy about being in a swimsuit. Note to self: Wearing my swimsuit in a dark room under blankets doesn’t count. This idea is WAYYYY more consistent with my personality which is pretty sociable and happy. I really can’t stand how our bodies hold us back from doing the things we want to do. STUPID BODY! Get off of me. So I guess what I’m trying to say is this:
Dear Terrible Weather,
Thank you for reminding me how much I want to continue on this healthy path and lose more weight. I already feel better about my body and I would really like to feel like I don’t have to always wear cardigans over my tank tops even when it’s a bizillion degrees outside.
P.S. Tomorrow I weigh in at WW so I will let everyone know if I lost anymore weight.
