Drinks Out of Pineapples or The Weigh-in at the Doctor’s?

Dale's Toes at Cabo

Dale’s Toes at Cabo

My sister is in Cabo San Lucas having a very well deserved vacation! Sigh… She’s hanging out on the beach and drinking out of pineapples. Pineapples are good for you, right? I’m thinking I’m in dire need of sun and sand. I even have a water/sandproof cover for my Kobo reader. (Insert more sighs here.)

But…I have a doctor appointment this afternoon…and I haven’t been in over a month…and I know I’ve gained weight. I can feel it. My fattish pants fit. I have to face her. I read a news article in some magazine a while ago (maybe it was in a doctor’s waiting room) that people who have a good relationship with their doctor do well in their own health care. I know Dr. Fretz has saved my life more than once. But I have to go at least every two weeks. I need the scale there to record the outcomes of my day-to-day activities.

I have no excuses but I do have some new motivation. The beach! I really want to go to the beach! I want all the tequila-based drinks I can manage and lots of sunscreen. But…I have to get some weight off first. I have 3 bathing suits and two of them will look like crap on me right now. (The other is the multitude of sins suit.)

So..what am I going to do about it? I will stick to my diet.  I will exercise and walk. I have more than a goal for january – I have a destination. Yep! Anywhere but here!

Thanks for listening. ;D Diane
