OK, we've all been there. Well, most of us. And it's not the end of the world. OK, fine, maybe it is, but I'm hell bent on pretending it's not.
I'm talking about the horrible moment when the trousers you were wearing just a few months ago suddenly don't fit anymore...
I mean, what are you supposed to do about it? Other than lay off the chocolate, of course. Maybe actually get to the gym every once in a while. Well, that's all very clear and simple, in theory... But before we get to the all-important lay-off-the-chocolate-and-get-your-expanding-butt-to-the-gym phase, there's something even more important to do:
Well, that's what I did, anyway.
The thing is, I've never been on a diet in my life. For most of my life I've been able to eat anything I want, as much as I want, without putting on weight. OK, the weight has been piling up a bit in the last 10-15 years... But my point is, I've never considered myself overweight, and never worried about not fitting into my clothes. Until now. So, I don't know what the protocol is. This is all new to me, and something I thought was beyond the realm of possibility.
So, when my trousers (which I last wore in autumn) suddenly felt too tight, I really freaked out. As in this-can't-be-happening-oh-my-God-why-me freaked out. And then I swore never to touch a piece of chocolate again. Yeah, that lasted a few hours... and then I gobbled up all the chocolate I could get my hands on. You know, being depressed and all...
But I finally pulled myself together, put on the only (well, almost) pair of jeans that fits comfortably and decided that I may not be slim but I can still be cool...
So, this is me, not putting on a brave face, but giving you my best don't-I-look-cool impression.
As for the unwanted weight gain... I'm still in the freaking out phase, don't know what the protocol is and still self-medicating with chocolate... HELP!!!
