Doing What I’m Told – KITA

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23): If you truly desire to change your life then now is the time to do something about it. Stop thinking about what you would like to do and actually do it. Once you get some movement going magical things will start to happen. For your extended forecast call 1-900-783-8333* (Times Colonist Oct 23, 2011)

Great horoscope, eh? Is this another epiphany or just the cosmos using the KITA (Kick In The Ass) theory of motivation on me? I was having a bad time a few years ago (hahaha) and went to a counsellor for some help and direction.  She was great but..asked me a great question; if I was to give myself advice what would it be?  Seriously????  I give advice all the time.  Sometimes people even ask for it. I would tell this person, the Fatgirlshrinking, “get off the pot or piss.  Just do it! “(Sorry Nike.)

So what is holding me back?  I always did what my Mom and Dad told me to do even if it went against every fibre of my being. The fibre of my being, I love the sound of that! And we all know we need more fibre.  OK, sometimes I bucked the order but in a very passive-aggressive way. For example, my Dad told me all my life that I would be going to university. Ok, I could and would do it, but, I went Fine Arts! Great career, eh?  I now have a BFA (bachelor of F-All) in Design for the Theatre! I sure showed him, didn’t I? Then as soon as I graduated I went to work at Capital Iron full-time!

I have lost weight in so many different ways and I’ve gained it back.  I’ve probably lost enough weight to populate a small town.  But I AM a fat girl.  I have been most of my life but now I want to be a loser to be a winner.  Not for all of you and my adoring public but for me.  My family loves me.  They care about me. They worry non-stop.  I will NOT give them a guilt puppy, thinking they coulda, shoulda done more.  I have had my KITA and it wasn’t a life-threatening epiphany but a horoscope and a blog.


I’l be back and I’ll tell you more about “guilt puppies’ and “life-threatening” events.  Live, love and laugh.
