Are you there, Skinny?? It's me, Fatty.

I live a life of gluttony.  I own this fact.  I'm not in
denial.  It is all my own doing.  I love carbohydrates,
cheese of any kind, and wine of any color.

I have gained 9 pounds since the summer began.

My goal was to lose 20 lbs. by June (clearly that didn't happen).  I had found a walking buddy in my neighborhood, and we actually had quite a routine down.  I started cooking straight out of Weight Watchers cookbooks.  I was taking supplements.  I was drinking lots of water.

Then I tore my ACL.  Figures.

I gain weight just by being in the same room as anything with calories.  I have no self-control.  No will power. 
I used to.  Until I had children.  Then I went into survival mode.

My "fat" clothes are getting too tight.  It's pathetic.  I'm completely disgusted with myself.  I might as well move into a barn, grow utters and start making milk.

So, what do I do to make myself feel better??

Eat.  And drink wine.  I'm awesome.

I'm giving myself one more week of free-for-all-trough-feeding, and then buckling down.  Seriously.  I'm putting this into cyber-space to keep myself accountable.  Must turn this jello into muscle by Christmas.

Wish me luck!  (personally, I give it two weeks)  But, I WILL look like this again:

(even if it requires rehab, starvation and plastic surgery)


  1. I feel your pain, I know your pain, I live your pain. I'm starting to look like I'm starting my second trimester!

    Start after Labor Day, too many bbqs, summer drinks, and dessert goodies to pass up! Until then, live it up, get pyscho later!


    The Brainless Housewife :P

    P.S. You gave me inspiration for a new post, I'm going to mention you!

  2. I am right there with you. I found some pics of me about 8 years ago and got all upset about how completely it doesnt resemble the current me.

    In any event, I gave you an award on my site in the post "sucking is awesome".

  3. Hey, carbohydrates and wine.. c'mon. Who could ever resist these things??

    Great blog. You've just got a new reader :)

    Maybe you could come visit my blog too.


  4. Just found your blog. LOVE your honesty. I would diet... if I LIKED fruits and veggies... and I could exercise... if my couch were less comfy! I need to, I want to... but everything in my rebels and tells me to eat chocolate and take a nap! New follower. :)
