But by the time I created this blog, I'd already lost 30 pounds, which was only 10 pounds away from my 40 pound goal. And sure, I could have just picked up from there, but it seemed a little anti-climactic, especially since these last 15 pounds or so have felt pretty effortless and no one wants to read, "Oh wow, I stepped on the scale and saw I've lost 4 pounds in the last two weeks! How'd that happen?"
Hence the title of this post: Too little, too late. At this point, I'm 6 pounds away from my original goal and I'm currently lounging around the house in the pair of jeans I couldn't even pull up past my thighs in January when I started my weight loss journey.
(Can I just take a quick aside and mention how much I detest the phrase "weight loss journey"? I don't know why I hate it so much, but I feel like it sounds so damn cheesy and fake. But I've been writing about it for 7 months now and I still haven't come up with a better phrase. So I'll use it, begrudgingly.)
Also in the meantime, I discovered Tumblr and it is just so freaking easy to update Tumblr that I don't even update my LJ as much because I'd rather be pithy and short on Tumblr or post a link to a music video or web comic rather than take the time to write out a proper blog post. There's a word for this. It's lazy. I am it. But I have this blog and I want to make something out of it. It'll just take some time to figure out what that will be.
In my next update, I'm going to write up a summary of my weight loss, starting with the whole awesome back story of how I ended up weighing 195 pounds. And there will be a post about rompers, a clothing item that I am a bit obsessed with at the moment, despite the fact that it is ridiculously unflattering on me. And this summer, I am finally going to read To Kill a Mockingbird, an American classic I managed to completely miss out on reading thanks to going to 3 different high schools.
So that's what's to come on Up in the Air. There might even be a post or two about my crazy life as a flight attendant (it's really not as crazy as you might think).
