Incentive is what I need to lose a little weight. So, that is exactly what I am giving myself.
I remember when I had my Limousine service some years back, I always had older used limos. But I always wanted a brand new one. So one day I decided to give myself a 90-day time frame and that’s when I was going to have enough money to save up to put down on a brand new limo. I put the pic of the brand new limo right behind my desk so I could see it every single day. And I put a calendar right next to that. I marked of each day as it passed. Then finally, at the end of 90 days, I flew to Anaheim, Ca and bought my first brand new limo. It was such an awesome feeling of accomplishment.
Well, if I am going to lose some weight in the next 30 days, I need to dangle a carrot in front of my very own face. I want a big screen TV. Not just a big screen, but I want a HUGE screen TV in my living room. I went to Best Buy and I saw what is maybe the baddest TV ever. It even has its own pop up camera on top of it so you can take pics or Skype I guess. It was a 75” screen and I think this TV may have been about an inch and a half thick at the most. So, my deal with myself is this. If I can get down to 218 pounds by the end of the year, I’m buying this obnoxiously large TV for myself. That’s my goal weight but I have to do it over the holidays and by Dec 31st. that’s my deal and I’m sticking to it.
The “sure baby” phase continues with the doctor. Yesterday, it was errands. I don’t want to act like she is always asking me to do stuff. Lots of the time, I am the one offering my “services.” You want me to take care of that for you baby? “Sure baby. I don’t mind at all.” and honestly, I don’t mind. Like I said, I’m in the “sure baby” phase. Yesterday, the lady that comes by to straighten up her house about every 2 weeks was scheduled for a cleaning. I have no idea why I didn’t just say “her maid.” I guess it sounded a little snobby. Any way, her maid was coming by but she wanted me to go by her house to secure a couple of things that the maid may not have needed to see. And since I live only 2 minutes from where she lives, I took care of it. “Sure baby” is still alive and well.
4 days and counting…The big company Christmas Party is this Saturday. And I think that she is wearing the dress that I bought her and she will be meeting all of the co-workers. This is almost more pressure than meeting my family. This show has been the downfall of so many relationships. I hope to somehow preserve this one and get past this meeting with my friends. If it can make it past this, it really has legs. But then again, this meeting has, co-workers, alcohol and the dress that I bought. Oh wow. We’ll never make it!
