Opening her mouth and removing doubt
April 27, 2005
Well I had a lovely weekend - full of bad behavior and now I'm paying for it in many ways.
On Friday evening, I wound up eating too much of the buttery garlic bread with spaghetti for dinner, and then the bad weekend truly began. The girls and I did some power shopping on Saturday, where upon I had a frappucino for breakfast, General Tso's chicken for lunch along with 3.5 crab rangoon, and then had a piece of cake (granted, it was smalllll) and THEN had a rather large portions at dinner. However, we walked a great deal on Saturday so I imagine perhaps that I worked off ONE of the rangoon. And I spent a bit too much money, but whats to be done? I needed both of those pairs of shoes. Because fat girls love to shop for shoes.
Sunday morning, I sat out on the deck and gave myself a pedicure - in the warm sunshine. The bad part is where I put on this lotion that is like 50% almond oil while I was out there. Ever slather oil on a peice of tender meat and then expose it to a radiant heat source? Yep - I deep fat fried my legs. As the day progressed, even though I was only outside for about 2 hours total and before Noon, my legs continued to develop until they were coca cola can red. I was soo miserable - and it made me exceptionally hot. Needless to say, I slept miserably last night. Like a french fried whale.
Monday morning my skin was so tight and red that I had to skip the gym. I wound up going last night after work - and couldn't do all of my floor stretches because I couldn't bear to be on my knees on the floor. And I made the mistake of weighing myself just to see how much damage had been done. And damage had been done, indeed.
On top of already feeling like a pig, last night I was showing a girlfriend the pictures from the wedding (LAST YEAR) and I just cringed at how wide I was in a big fou-fou white dress. YUCK. I wonder if I can convince the Big Guy to renew our vows so I can get new pictures *grin*

I too am a fat girl that loves to shop for shoes - because hello, they look good on (almost) anyone. Keep up the good work. Sounds like you are doing great. I too was on a losing streak before my wedding a little over a year ago and actually got down a few sizes. Since the wedding in January of 2004 I have gained all 30 lbs back nicely, plus some. I guess they just could stay away (or I couldn't keep myself under control). But I can say I am pretty happy with the wedding pics considering that was the only time I felt like a fairly normal size. Again congrats and stick with it. I definetely think you should get to do the pics again!Post a Comment
