Inside me lives a skinny gal trying to get out. Usually I shut her up with a bowl of spaghetti or a chunk of chocolate. Sometimes I don't eat them but then have to stuff my ears instead because she sure makes a lot of noise!
Let’s face it, I have never, ever met a bowl of pasta I did not like. And I am very friendly to many other foods.
It is my nature to be accommodating. But I must declare that these weeks of celebrations and special occasions are doing me in.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
2 Open Houses
1 Spectacular (and yummy) Wedding.
Please, no more food or toasts or "taste this as I made it especially for you!"
In the past my philosophy has always been that life is fragile so eat dessert first. I just never thought I would live this long.
Remember when I mentioned oh so many times that I thought I heard applause as I was jogging and it turned out to be my thighs hitting together? Well, now it is more like an auditorium of screaming rock aficionados giving a standing ovation to my jiggles and hanging participles’.
Please, do not invite me to one more celebration. I cannot eat another thing till…till…dinner time.
On the other hand I just read this very day in the New York Times that being overweight is not bad. They claim that the Body Mass Index (BMI) may not be an accurate measure of health. WHEW!
Oh, well…I am truly not worried.
I do not want to brag and certainly, you should not compare yourself to me, but… I can still fit into my earrings from high school, so there.
