Eating like a bird.

Yeah, right.

I eat like a freakin' piggie.

I just came back from my 2nd vacation in 5 weeks, and I feel HUGE. I've gained 6 lbs over the last five weeks or so. Well, I weighed myself mid day and so it might not be quite that much, but to say the least, I feel like shit.

I watched Dan's two cousins (they're 8 and 11, so they're more like nephews) eating, and their parents have to beg them to finish their plates. These two boys are really picky eaters and just aren't interested in food. I'm staring at them while they eat like, "what the hell?" -- I wish I could have that much disinterest in food. Seriously. I wish someone would be like, "Jenn, you should eat some dinner or something," and I would say, "Oh yeah, well... I guess a little something, I'm not really hungry." Or I could say, "I don't like cheese." Or, "Nah, not really feeling the stuffing today."

Seriously, I hate it and I'm PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW.

I am getting right back on the fucking horse tomorrow, 'cause I just can't do this anymore. My pants hurt, my arms are big and I spent seven days staring at Dan's sister Christina who is 30, has a daughter and looks AMAZING. I'm younger, I've never had a kid and I've never looked as good as she does. It's ridiculous.

She's on the left here:


Oh and did I mention Terry, who is on the right in that photo? She's got 2 kids, and she's in her 40's. I wanna stab myself in the face.

I will be keeping you posted, but y'all... I'm totally renewed in my quest. You should be seeing some kick ass weight loss numbers in the up and coming weeks.

Whoo hoo!! Yay for being back on the horse!!

Sometimes all it takes is a good kick in the pants to get you going again...and just think, you've lost weight, and if you stop trying now, eventually that weight will creep back on and you'll be back where you started...so just keep going!! Good luck!

I like that you said that your pants hurt...lol I can relate- I actually once said that my face hurt- it was so puffy and big the skin actually hurt. lol

Welcome back to the weight loss journey! :)

I gained 10 lbs on my ONE WEEK vacation so I think 6 lbs is great over that long! I know what yu mean about those types of people. I seem to be surrounded by them! :)

and the post? I CLEARLY recall when lifeguard one summer and was less than "thin" looking at the moms at the babypool and thinking FRICK. I HAVENT HAD A KID AND THEY LOOK WAAAY BETTER (they did. look better I mean. trust me :))
I used that as motivation to get fit...as much as it initially stung.

I have a two sons and a brother-in-law who do not eat unless they are hungry. I have never understood that. Me? I eat at the drop of a hat!

Don't let your frustrations get to you. Put your eyes on the goal and start moving toward it. Any time you feel week, go back and read this post.

Make it a great day!
