I’m gonna LOSE it!

Alright so maybe there is a case to be made for the fact that I may have ALREADY “lost” it several times over. The thing is for ONCE we aren’t talking about my questionable sanity. This time it’s a far more serious topic.. MY ASS! Yes darling Nuggetiers the ole hiney ain’t lookin’ so fine-y these days. In fact it’s looking more like a deformed over sized pumpkin. Ya know – like those monstrosities they use forklifts to load onto livestock scales at the county fair?

…………………Nice visual there eh?

I’m in a bad way kids. Next year I hit the big 4-oh-hell-no and though I like to think I’m pretty okay with me the stark truth is I’m not. Well at least not the me that stares back at me from the mirror and demands deep fried Twinkies dipped in chocolate. Let’s just say it.. I’m over tired, over wrinkled and over weight. I’ve resolved to do something about these things. Sleep.. marginally do-able. Botox… we’ll see. Reduce the amount of junk in the trunk… here is were I KNOW I can do something. How do I know? Well heck if it worked for Jennifer Hudson it can work for me.. right? RIGHT?! PLUS as we all know I’m a sucker for a cause and Weight Watchers has hooked me with a great one… Loose-A-Palooza!

  • Lose-A-Palooza is a one-day social media event created to encourage participation in the Lose For Good® campaign to benefit Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger.
  • As part of the Lose For Good campaign, Weight Watchers will donate $1, up to a maximum of $60,000, to Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger for each approved mention, acknowledgment or action related to “Lose  For Good” made on September 14th through blogs, Twitter, Facebook and  check-in via foursquare.

I’ve vowed to join them in raising money and awareness while reducing the size of my PANTS… and bras, TMI?

Seriously though gang when you think about it most of us mom types (and dads too) spend so much of our time focusing on the external things in our lives. Kids, community, work, pets, family, relationships… blah blah blah. We often make excuses for why we don’t do things for ourselves. As the tag line of a popular beauty product says, “I’m worth it”.. and I am.. SO ARE YOU!

I’d love to have you join me in Lose For Good and Lose-A-Palooza! Start by making a difference just by getting “social media” with it tomorrow. Then stop by A CNOW Life over there I’ll be doing a series of video blogs, product features and pathetic emotional confessions in the next few weeks as I launch the site and hopefully launch my butt into a smaller pair of gut compressing jeggings!
