Sometimes I Feel Like...


The funny thing about being a woman is that you can go from feeling like a fatty fat fatty to an athletic, thin, strong person and then back to the fat fat feeling again all in the span of ten minutes.  

Perhaps because I ran around like a crazy person when I waitressed this summer and ended up losing a bunch of weight without even trying.  And now I'm not running around and I'm eating crazy amounts of fried shrimp and beef brisket.  Anyways, Summer and I are trying really hard to work out.  For example, in the last week, we have gone for several nice long walks, a couple of really good runs, done an ab/arm set, a leg set...we're doing great.  But that fat/skinny/fat feeling is always there.

For example, after eating fried chicken I feel like this:

Yes, that really is me.  Thailand April 2010


And then I go for a run and do ten pushups and I feel like this:

Yes, that really is me.  Costa Rica February 2011

And then I have two glasses of wine to celebrate the nice run and ten pushups and I feel like this:

Yes, that really is me.  Minnesota June 2011


Am I right, ladies?  I can't be the only one who feels this way?  *crickets...

That second picture doesn't look anything like you. It looks like a handsome man with dark hair. I don't think it's really you.

You might want to ask someone who doesn't weigh 240 pounds on a skinny day.

I often forget and think I'm still thin. And then I approach the glass doors to enter a store, wondering who that fat lady is walking toward me on the other side...and then I realize it's my reflection, and I remember.

Sarah -- I should have clarified. That is my friend Ted, the Californian with the impossible body.

Jacqui -- shut up.

Kim -- sad. You forgot you were pregnant too, remember? And tried to turn sideways to make yourself skinnier to get through tight spaces?
