This is the question of my life. If I could solve this riddle I would at once be a supermodel, a billionaire, and a modern marvel. So what sparked this tirade? Well, every day I get a plethora of blogs in my inbox. Most of them are cute Mormon women who do everything in some lovely cross between the Pioneer Woman and Martha Stewart. Like the Pioneer Woman, they seemingly cook and eat an awful lot of great food. Unlike the Pioneer Woman, they are the size of my pinky finger….and my pinky finger aint too big.
As you may or may not know, I recently lost 40 pounds through my mentor coach and Take Shape For Life. In fact, it was such an easy way to lose the weight that I became a health coach and I, now assist people in reaching their optimum weight. One of the tenets, or healthy habits of this plan that make it lifelong is accountability. I get on the scale most mornings. Yesterday, I weighed in at 120.6. I stayed on plan pretty dang good until around 7. When I had 2 pieces of sushi and a beer. Mind you, I have eaten sooo good all day and it is only 2 pieces of sushi….no onion rings, no chocolate from See’s. I wake up this morning and I weigh in at 122. I know the chatter…”it is probably water, there was a lot of sodium in that soy sauce.” I don’t know.
Then, as if to taunt me, I open my inbox to the smiling face of the thinnest cutest bloggers, blogging about late night sushi and ice cream parties. Check out the girls
Did I mention I eat 2 pieces of sushi and a beer and I am up a pound and a half. Bitter much, today? I love being small, don’t get me wrong. It is super fun and exciting to wear whatever you want whenever you want. It is fun to be able to move and do push ups and most days, I don’t give one lick that some skinny girl gets to eat whatever she wants. But today….for one day I want to eat Sushi and ice cream out of waffle cup bowls late at night and not have to worry that I am ruining my chances of eating anything but shakes and bars for the next week. I just want to know what their trick is….seriously, our doll over at picky palate (she really is a cute thing, don’t you think?) isn’t the only one. There is a whole litany of these super super tiny skinny girls blogging about gnarly food. I am skinny but my blogs are generally about kale. Go figure?
Oh, the woes of maintaining weight loss.
