Inaugural Kiss Off

Now don't get me wrong... I don't need or want to lose any weight. I'm just jumping on board because I want to support my gal pal, Tena. I actually like being 20 lbs. overweight for a couple of reasons:

First, it keeps the boy toys from constantly hitting on me, making my husband feel more secure. Yes, I stay fat for my husband. Aren't I nice?

Second, when I am 20 lbs overweight, I can only fit into one pair of jeans and one or two tops. This cuts down on the decision making process when getting dressed. Being overweight is a time saver!

But, despite my excellent reasons for keeping my extra insulation, I am going to get fit, shed the weight and look fab by the end of May. 

I didn't step foot in the gym all weekend, nor did I hit the treadmill gathering dust in my basement. I ate pretty much everything in sight. However, today, I have done well. A cheese sandwich on lo-cal bread, yogurt and my good ol' diet standby, Cheerios with 2 packets of Splenda. Yum.

My plan for this week is to lay off the sweets, stick to my exercising, and drink lots of water. I know my mood will sour, my head will start to hurt and no one will want to be around me. I am due to get my period in a week, so by Wednesday, I should be full on PMS-ing. I know, I know... I can't wait, either.

Until next week, my dears, when I should be less bloated and on the road to being nice again. Maybe. 

And Tena, thanks for motivating me. If this actually works, I will come over to your house and kiss those uncrusty, beautiful (and skinny) feet of yours.

Good luck, girl. And I like the "staying fat for my hubs" thing. Think I may try that. I am sure he will appreciate it.

I'd say good luck, but I've seen pictures of you.

Where are you hiding the extra 20 lbs? Behind your ears?

Missy said...

I LOVE your reasons for "Staying Fat!" You are too funny! I hear that being Skinny is highly overrated!

If you are 20 lbs overweight, then I need to lose an Olsen twin. maybe both of them.
