Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Thin vs. Fat

Army of Dad loves to quote Winston Churchill, who was referred to as fat by someone. (I don't know the circumstances) and Churchill replied something to the effect that I can lose weight, you, however will still be ugly.

I have evidence to support this claim:

Versus THIS:

I'd rather look like Kirstie Alley than Tori Spelling any day of the week. I do think that Kirstie is lying about only weighing around 200 pounds, though. She is 5'8. When I got pregnant with Stinkerbelle about three years ago, I weighed 200 pounds on my little 5'2 frame. I was fat. I'm still pretty chunky, but there is no way that she weighs 200 on her tall frame. Not that it really matters, I still think she is pretty. I guess it is a chick thing, though. I think women look better with a little meat on their bones than when they look like this:

Even when I weighed 115, I thought girls looked better with a little meat on them than just being skin and bones and looking like a 12-year-old boy. I still have 40 pounds to lose to get to where I was before I had my oldest more than 10 years ago. It is do-able if I'll get off my butt and exercise. I've dropped a pants size already since returning to work. I hope I can keep that up and drop a few more sizes, too. We'll see.

    I couldn't agree more. There is such a thing as too thin. I once was too thin. Unfortunately, I went overboard when trying to "fix" that (by gaining about 40 pounds) and now look OK but have joints that are very unhappy at my current weight. South Beach seems to be helping. Have you tried it? Lost 10 pounds (total) the first two weeks and lost 2 pounds in the third week. My hubby has had similar results. It hasn't been too bad, except for day #10, when we nearly bit off each other's head. Exercise would speed the process, I know, but who has time? I don't, at least not this time of year when it's one humongus deadline.... I know the excitement of dropping a size. Hang in there! LB
