THIS is great. Just what I needed today.
Although I started WeightWatchers two weeks ago, and have LOST weight… I now weigh 245.
TWO HUNDRED FORTY-FIVE POUNDS.
I am 5’ 8”. When I tell people how much I weigh, they never believe me. I wear at size 18-20, depending on the style, cut, etc. I fit into a size 2X. I HAVE BOOBS. And a BUTT. Believe it or not, one of my concerns about switching to a healthy lifestyle is that I will lose my curves. They are a part of my identity. I have never been a small girl. I will never BE a small girl. But I can and will be an in-shape girl, who can take three flights of stairs at work and not get winded. A girl who can swim laps and keep up with her former-lifeguard/swimmer husband.
When I started WW the intent was strictly to lose weight. I’m changing my mind. It’s now to change my lifestyle – to incorporate healthy food, food that isn’t healthy that I love anyway, and more exercise!!! – to change my attitude towards food – to be able to have the ice cream. Joy is right – life is too short to not live it. I will eat my full fat, loaded with sugar, full of flavor ice cream now. And you? The person who judges me for eating ice cream, for telling me I don’t “need” it? Well, enjoy your tasteless fat free frozen yogurt with no flavor in a futile attempt to deny yourself any of life’s small pleasures in pursuit of the skinny jean (which doesn’t look good on ANYONE). If I’m going to eat ice cream, I’m going to eat Godiva Belgian Chocolate ICE CREAM.
Can you hand me a spoon please? Thanks.
