That's what happens when you eat your body weight in food more than you should. Ugh.
I recently saw old pictures of myself (taken at age 28 or so), and couldn't believe it. And believe it or not, I thought I was overweight at the time. Objectively speaking though, I was in fighting shape, thanks to TaeBo everyday and performing in Miss Saigon 6 times a week. More recently, while in Les Miz, I kept my weight down by walking to work daily and not eating too much because of having to sing in that goshdarned corset.
Life... that's what happened... and it manifested itself in my hips.
I really shouldn't be so down on myself... after all, a fitness program can always be restarted, regardless of how much time was spent away from it. Thankfully there is a lot of incentive: plenty of opportunities in New York next year, and a return to musical theater (in a few of its many incarnations). That should help me keep my eyes on the prize.
Motivation... must keep focused...
