Decidedly Not Lovin’ It

As I was out running errands today I did something I am sure Weight Watchers would not approve of.  I skipped breakfast.  I know, it was stupid and I have no excuse other than the same old worn out one I’ve used a million times:  I was in a hurry.  The fact is, folks, we have to stop and take the time we need for ourselves.  That’s what got me right where I am today.  Rush, rush, rush and then stuff my face with bad stuff.medium_392123657

Which I did.

I know.  I’ll pay for it Thursday when the scale laughs out loud right there in front of all the other nice WW members who don’t blatantly break the rules.

As I sat in the drive thru staring at the Golden Arches I remembered a joke I heard by Louie Anderson.  He said they weren’t arches.  They are really one, giant, golden butt.  I giggled when I heard that but the truth of the matter didn’t occur to me until I wolfed down that burger.  They aren’t just A butt.  That’s MY butt, life sized, right there in front of God and everybody, a testament to a lifetime of this failed choice.  It put me right off my fries, I’m tellin’ ya.

The next time you pass those arches, think of my butt and just keep driving!

  1. One slip up does not mean you can’t still do it! You can!!!!

  2. It’s great you can laugh! And I’ll bet the scales were not that discouraging. My favorite quote from Finding Nemo: “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.”
