I know I write an awful lot about my weight, but the fact is, I like to eat. I also like to cook, so the combination is just deadly for my waistline!
Currently two out of the four pairs of my jeans that I can actually zip, have a hole in the left knee. Yes both pairs have the hole on the left knee. I guess I kneel on that knee the most. Anyway, the point here is, I do not want to go out and buy new pants until I have lost the weight and I am back in my usual size.
That’s even funny because my usual size is actually the size I was a couple of years ago for about 5 minutes! As soon as I eat “normal” food or have a couple of drinks, the weight jumps back on me and it brings friends.
When I was younger, I used to be able to eat just about anything, and I didn’t gain weight. It didn’t seem that I was as consumed by thoughts of food back then. Perhaps because I was such a bad cook.
Then I married Hubby and found he liked to eat. Not just that, he didn’t mind being used as a Guinea Pig, while I learned to cook.
Julia Child video’s and I became good friends. Having her turn an omelet and miss the pan, somehow made the tuna roll I had tried to make, but that fell apart, easier for me to take.
Not everything a person cooks will turn out like a Master Chef. We all have our bad days, but over the last 25 years, I’ve actually improved.
Thus my weight problem, and my lifetime membership with Weight Watchers!
