I am down 6.4 lbs after 1 week of the sexy shred challenge.
Around days 3 and 4 I began to feel withdrawal effects, not unlike those one experiences when giving up nicotine, coffee, or illicit drugs. I was dizzy, listless, annoyed, irritable, and craving SUGAR and CARBS like nobody’s business.

…why we do this to one another. You care deeply as a friend for someone, and they appear to reciprocate. But then one day, they appear to have turned it off. And you can’t figure out why. Do I have terrible breath or body odor? Am I suddenly repulsive? Have I done anything inappropriate or disappointing? Why am I no longer good enough to be in your good graces for longer than 2 minutes at a time?
So what do you do? You go out of your way to express to them how much you care about them. You communicate to them in the best way you can how much life pretty much sucks without them around. But you know what? No matter how much you shower someone with affection, gifts, etc,…if they’re not interested in your friendship, they just ARE NOT interested. Period.
So what do you do? You move on, Martha, MOVE ON!! You learn to start appreciating the people that are not only there with you, but that seem to actually enjoy and revel in your presence. You eventually find that you no longer care about the object of your unrequited friendship. Life feels different, but it feels begins to feel great again.
So what do THEY do? NOW they are interested again. Only because someone else has expressed interest? Is that how it is? I’ve been over here this entire time, dancing a friggin’ jig and singing to the top of my lungs about how much I think the world of you. But now, ONLY because others find my friendship and company appealing do you acknowledge me?
So what do I do? Throw up deuces, bitch, that’s what I do. Enjoy the view as I walk away.
