Am I a Golden Retriever?


So I have been trying my very hardest to lose all this weight that my little lady packed on me. I feel like I have tried everything (you learn a lot working at a high school) so bulimia and anorexia have seriously crossed my mind! I have also tried eating only yogurt or those silly shakes, or anything else that may inspire my budges to fall off my saddle bags! So then I teamed up with my neighbor and we decided to run a marathon! (ok, half a marathon, but I say the first part extra quiet so people think I am very ambitious) Anyway, feeling pretty good till the alarm goes off at 5:30 each morning, but I still feel good until we come to the homestretch and suddenly I realize that my hip will no longer function like it should. I complain so much that my husband is used to me saying 'ouch' and 'oh my gosh' and 'why me' and having tears roll down my face that he does not even ask what is wrong anymore. So I looked up hip dyspepsia and low and behold, it normally affects Golden Retrievers. (the pic is even one of a dog, notice the tail!) So I am now thinking I am a chubby dog! Not happy with that idea! Anyway, if any of you fit people know of anything I can do to ease my pain, (I am even up for voo doo) let me know. Or if you know of anyway to lose all my excess poundage, I am all ears!

I'm afraid your early years as a pole dancer have cause permanant damage. I am so sorry you are in such pain. That's no fun. And I am super impressed by the (half) Marathon. You look amazing, but if you discover any miracles or secrets to lose weight...let me know!!!

Hip Hip Hooray (no pun intended on the hip) You have joined the blog world! This means we will be friends forever, or untill the world ends leaving us without internet, which would suck! Ok your baby is... .... .... ridiculously HOT! So so cute. Takes after her mama! I love ya and can't wait to hear more. Oh and glucosamine works wonders for joint pain. Good luck sister.

I know the feeling! literally! My whole body hurts waaaay worse now then my softball days. I guess I am too fat and my kid is too heavy, so that makes for a mean combo. I too am trying to lose the extra poundage- lol. I have thought about eating disorders, lipo, and moving to a third world country.

Mandy my Dear, thank you for your comments. They made my day. As far as creativity goes, blogwise, I have no idea how your friend did her page. I've seen others all cute and scrapbook like and I've wondered myself how they do it. Ask her. As far as mine goes, mine is an already made template. No creativity on my part. You make the side bar by going to customize and adding links or lists or whatever. Your blog is super cute though so I don't know what you're talking about. Oh and Edward loves me more...except that we're fighting right now.
