The best thing about the weight gain is my boobs are huge!
In the month of December I ate more McDonalds than I did all of last year, heck maybe in two years. FREAKING McDONALD'S I SAID!!! The enemy of healthy lifestyles everywhere and public enemy #1 to this nation's obesity problem!!! Here's my typical daily conversation at Mickey D's ...
Drive thru speaker, "Welcome to McDonalds ... order when you're ready."
Me, "Ah yeah, I'll take 2 Sausage Egg McMuffins - no cheese, and 2 holiday pies please."
Speaker, "That you Mr. Weatherly ... not running today, huh?"
Me, with a long sigh, "Yeah, it's me ... no, no I'm not ... that's all thanks."
Don't any of you dare judge my daily breakfast order ... y'all know you've been there. Those pies were a limited edition holiday treat with little sprinkles, so mind your own business. But you know how it goes ... one month you're in the best shape of your life attempting a personal best, and then about 60 days later you look like someone at the original you. Since mid October I've gained about 15 pounds. I'm not kidding. I was at about 175, and now I'm right around 190. It was like my own little Opposite World Weight Watchers program ... where I just watched my jeans get tighter and tighter. Mind you, I told myself, "This year's not gonna be like the rest". But before I knew it I slipped into that old mind trap of thinking that if I didn't eat everything in sight in one particular meal, it might not be available again in 5 hours when I stuffed my face again.
But thank goodness the holidays are over. I've started increasing the mileage again ... slowly but surely. And Michael and I have resolved to avoid places like Jose Peppers Cantina ... which don't be fooled by the name - that place has nothing but fattening delicious deep fried Mexican food. Also, I've seen a small change in the scale, which seems to be headed south again. So hopefully in a few weeks I'll be back to normal. But if not, I'll probably consider selling add space on the giant boiler just under my shirt. Hope your holiday pounds are coming off faster than mine!
... be great today!
