I Got Thick

A few years ago, I decided it was time to lose some of the weight I had put on after having Maddie. It took almost two years, but I lost about 40 pounds.

It took 3 months to gain 8 back. I mean 10. Okay, okay- you forced me- 12.

I can tell. I think Justin can tell. Especially when I'm jumping around the bedroom trying to squeeze into my jeans.

I was telling some people at work how I've really started watching what I eat and how I've been exercising like a mad woman to lose those 12 pounds. They were doing what real friends do- telling me that they couldn't tell, and claiming that I didn't need to lose any weight. Whatever.

From across the room, I heard someone shout, "Yeah- Chelsea done got THICK." Her words, not mine.

Now, I like a thick slice of cake. And a thick steakburger, with thick cut french fries. Thick milkshakes. There are lots of things that are thick that are wonderful.

But when you are talking about my body, particularly my lower half- thick is not good.

So this holiday season, when I pass on cookies, cake, candy and everything delicious in this world, don't be offended.

I'm just trying to un-thick myself.

I am not laughing at you, I am sympathizing with you.

Come join me over at the Sisterhood of The Shrinking jeans! Shrinkingjeans.net (i think) it's a group of women dedicated to having a light christmas! ;-)

Thanks for the giggle Chelsea.

LOL! That's a compliment to a lot of people. Good luck with your efforts though!

Adrienne said...

YOU are NOT thick. I AM. I have gained, ahem...30+ pounds since we got married! I blame it on 5 short-term pregnancies, a Russian adoption, and a failed U.S. adoption. I don't know how long I can stay in denial though. I just love good food! :)
