I’m back from my trip. and i’m 6 pounds up.
crap. crappity crap crap.
i’d like to be able to say it’s my thyroid. i mean, my sister has a thyroid problem….and she noticed it when she was close to 30. not that i’m saying having a thyroid problem would be a good thing, certainly not. but at least it would be an explanation that was a little less humiliating than going to your doctor for a physical and explaining that all the weight gainÃ‚Â was due toÃ‚Â ‘heifer-like eating’ which is what i would have to do, if i, um, ever went to the doctor for physicals…because i certainly NEVER do that…i call up dr. jack and explain my ailments over the phone…and he takes care of me. i figure it’s a good relationship, because i can return the favorÃ‚Â with i-touch tricks…because i am SO loving my new itouch, i seriously want to marry it. she’s so purty.
so…back to my 6 pounds. my skinny jeans don’t fit. my regular jeans don’t fit. i’m living in lulus and pretending my cottage cheese ass still looks hot. i’m also living in my hoodies. now i know why they are so popular these days. they hide flab like no one’s business. i also hide, in my hoodies, behind the babies. and then i look skinny!!!
well…here comes New Years Resolution #1.
LOSE WEIGHT IN OH-EIGHT (because, hello!, can we say St. Lucia in exactly TWO months…)
now, everyone in my family swears by south beach and no/low carb. my sister. my brother. my husband. my father. they go on it…and lose 14 pounds in 2 weeks…but, y’all remember what happened to me last year when i went on it…i lost a grand total of – wait for it – 0 pounds. nothing. nada. zilch. zero. the big O.
so…i’m sick of having all these new things and not being able to squash my large-ess into them, so i will be doing my own kind of thing…i’m sure it will have some aspects of the South Beach Diet – low fat, low sugar, low carb…but i love me some carbs. mmm…carbs. and i’m sure i could NEVER give them up. and apparently, even these are bad for you now
but, ya’ll, you’d be VERY impressed with me. i did manage to make it through the entire day today carb-free (and we ate lunch out with our crew and ate dinner at my sister in law’s…where there was many a carb and a BIRTHDAY CAKE.) so i’m feeling pretty good about myself.
but i so wish i hadn’t discovered these:
because, seriously,Ã‚Â they are HEAVEN in a box. and hell on the thighs.
