Baby Got Back!

All my life I have loved music! I always have a song in my head. With the advent of #temt I have several songs that come to mind. The line "I'll win the fight!" from the AC/DC's song TNT (close to #temt) goes through my head every time I fight my way up "Butt Kicker Hill" It helps keep me motivated, and knowing I will have to tweet what I did each day holds me accountable to the #temt Team!
There is one song that haunts me to this day! I was a jock in high school and played every sport a girl could play! I was very thin except for one part of my butt! Boys have teased me since I was a little girl about my butt! People still sing this song to me:

I cringe every time I hear this song. Another song, "Baby Got Back", became another anthem for my rather large posterior! Now that I am older, I would love to have the body I had in high school...big butt and all!
I am on a mission to get my buttocks under control. I love the support I receive as an educator everyday from my Twitter Friends! I love the fact that this has now extended into something so crucial as our health. The support I feel from tweets makes me feel like I can do anything! I can finally have the body I want to have! Maybe, just maybe this song will come to mind instead...


  1. Kelly,
    Enjoyed your post and trust me, I can relate ;-) I have never been called "thin" really but my,ahem, rear view has always been the most prominent. No matter how tiny my waist gets, my curves are definitely still there.
    We are here cheering you on to reach your goals :-)
    Thanks again!

  2. Kelly,
    I love your post! I've always liked your posts about "Butt-Kicker Hill" and #sorebutt. This post puts everything together =)

    Keep up the great work!

    Wouldn't we all love to have the body we had back in high school. #iwish

  3. Keep up the good work. Every day presents new challenges and we have to deal with our lack of motivation, aches and pains, and of course the "busy" schedule. I am really enjoying this #temt connection and posts like this in my reader keep the motivation refueled.

  4. Kelly,
    I loved this post!
    I really hope you meet your goals! We are here to help you!
    Go team #temt!
    Thanks for sharing it!

  5. Kelly...

    Thanks for the laugh! Great post--I love the humour!!

    I too have grappled for years with my 'resplendent rump'... a result of many sports and years of highland dancing as a youth!

    I too have many memories of "Baby Got Back" in Highschool! Another song that always made me cringe in those days was 'Wiggle It'...

    Salt n' Pepa's "Shoop", Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" and Fergie's "My Hump" songs came to mind when reading your post too! A reminder to love our bodies!

    Go #temt!!
